Beautiful private tent with a porch, a huge bathroom, a comfortable bed, and a romantic atmosphere. Be prepared for a chilly night and for those few hours of absolute darkness. You will receive candles, but it...

This camp was a surprise as I didn't expect to see the tents within the Lodge. Each tent was very spacious with a lovely soft bed and a bathroom ensuite sectioned off at the rear of the bed. The tent is surrounded by lots of lovely lush vegetation which makes each tent seem really secluded. There is a lovely swimming...

A strongly recommended place for those who are visiting the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Beautiful property and very nice people, especially those in the Restaurant, Kitchen, Bar and the Garden.
