I cannot say enough good things about my stay at Etim Camp. It started on our arrival with Jamlick our game driver who was absolutely phenomenal!!! Michael greeted us at the lodge and helped manage our entire stay. The lodge is comfortable and beautiful with the most incredible views and provide a wonderful area for us to congregate and fellowship. My tent was like a 5-star hotel room complete with a double bed, desk, seating area and 3-piece washroom. The staff from security to Chef Joseph was exceptional! Mary took incredible care of us. From drinks to food and anything in-between, Mary made sure we were well-taken care of for our entire stay. Zablon managed all our meals and could not have been more gracious. Chef Joseph prepared the most magnificent 3 and 4 course meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout our 5 day stay without repeating any selections. Also, the menu choices were perfect for the vegan, vegetarian and gluten free members of my party. And I cannot forget Ms. Rose who gave me a spectacular massage on my birthday in the spa. Frankly, I did not want to leave and could have stayed another week. For me this was a trip of a lifetime, and I highly recommend a stay at Entim Camp, you will not be disappointed!

What a wonderful place! The location by a bend in the Mara River is just perfect and offers beautiful sunsets. The camp is small and very nicely and comfortably equipped, with a lot of attention to style. The team is very accommodating and helpful, and the food is excellent! We felt super comfortable and can only recommend the camp and would love to come back some day!

What a wonderful safari experience. This is exactly what you want from a safari. A small intimate, upmarket camp, great location, superb food, wonderful staff and the best game driver we have had (Joseph), who spotted animals, when to the casual observer would have missed them. We saw a Cheetah with a fresh kill, Lions cubs twice, Elephants with new born, in fact everything you would want to see on a safari and often within touching distance! Entim is not cheap but you get what you pay for and this is a truly 5* Safari experience.

Awesome luxury camp in the Massi Mara. We stayed at the extension camp - which was great - never saw the main camp. Collection of platform tents connected to a lounge/dining area by trails and an elevated walk-way. Set right off a river, surrounded by trees and looking out over the savannah. Very very active area - leopards, lion, hyena, hippos all over the place. Heard them grunting, howling, snorting all night. Escorts were required in the morning and at night - for good reason - we saw a hippo and had a near run in with a lion one morning - but the guards vectored us off the path and around it (very exciting). Tent was great - we had a three room family tent (2 bedrooms on either side of a sitting room) - each bedroom had its own bathroom. Facilities were super - very “safari” - big wood deck and fire pit back in the common area. Staff was awesome - Mike, Shon, Stanley, David - super friendly and helpful. Excellent multi course meals - great food, very nicely presented. The manager Angie was great. Would highly recommend. Remember this is a luxury camp in the Massi Mara - not a lodge/hotel - so the occasional bug showed up in the tent, no wifi in the tent (but they have it in the lounge), things could be a little damp - but that is part of the experience! Fabulous spot - super high end - animals everywhere.

Simply magical! The camp is located in one of the most beautiful locations within Masai Mara with a spectacular view of the Mara River full of hippos and visited by elephants, lions, and giraffes. Our tent was gorgeous with all the amenities you might need. What really stood out was the staff. They always went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable. It was our 10-year wedding anniversary, and they surprised us with sweets and champagne on the last night after dinner. Our safari guide, Jackie; was so amazing, friendly, and knowledgeable. My husband and I can't wait to return!!!! We absolutely loved it here.

Of all of our stays in Kenya, this was the best! The tents were large, clean, comfortable, and had every amenity we needed. What they didn't have in the tents, we could easily get from one of the many attentive staff. I would have liked to have a view of the river from our tent, but we still had a lovely view of the plains, and we heard the hippos outside our tent every night, and lions roaring in the distance. The main lodge was so nice. With separate eating areas, lounging areas, and spots overlooking the incredible Mara River, I could have easily spent my whole time just hanging out there. There were giraffe that often wandered through the camp, and the hippos came out of the river at night to feed in the "front lawn". The food was absolutely incredible!!! Every meal was unique and delicious. And they had snacks set up in the daytime between meals. The service was also incredible. From the manager, Michael who gave us an orientation when we arrived, and checked in with us every day; to our waiter, Hesbon who was so attentive, and friendly - he even remembered my likes and dislikes from one day to the next! There was Sam - the Mara tribesman who was the one who most of the time walked us to and from our tent in the dark - he was super! And all the other staff were always friendly, attentive, and ready to do or get anything we needed. Then there was Josphat - our driver. When we first met him, I wasn't sure he was as friendly as others. Turned out he was maybe just a little shy. He was super friendly, was eager to find us everything we asked to see, and then some; and what a driver!!! He took us through some crazy river crossings that I was sure I would end up swimming in - with no problems. And me made mud-slinging on the plains a whole lot of fun!!! Loved him!!! One of the things about this camp that differed from others we stayed at was there was no electric fencing to keep out wild animals. But they had Masai tribesmen posted everywhere to keep watch, so I never felt unsafe. I wish we could have been there for the Great Migration as this would definitely be the perfect place to view the infamous river crossing. However, we got a mini-taste of that with a herd of zebras crossing the river right in front of us. So amazing to see! I can't say enough good things about this camp - and about the Masai Mara Reserve in general. We saw more wildlife here than anywhere else on our trip. And it was just amazing.

I stayed at Entiim Main (2 nights) & Entiim Private (1 night). It was a great experience, food was fantastic, animals walk up to the deck during evening drinks. If you want to be treated like royalty this is the place to go.

The second we arrived at Entim Mara, my wife said it was magical! This lodge is located inside the park, unlike many others. We woke up one morning and saw hippos from our room! The food was absolutely outstanding! And the service was amazing! All of the staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable. There were a few people I would like to thank and recognize: Michael (Manager), Charles--our server in the dining room, and Rose in the gift shop. We can't imagine staying anywhere else as special as Entim Mara!
