This camp is set on the river bank facing the Masai Mara, and is unique! The tents are luxurious and spacious, the food is exquisite, and the staff are absolutely wonderful. Truly a place of leisure and relaxation, on the door-step of the legendary Masai Mara.

We stayed with a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. At first they put us in a Jumbo tent, that is spacious enough. They added an extra bed for 1 of our children, but had no facilities to attach a musquito net for that bed. But they solved this by giving us an extra tent, although that meant we had to split ourselves up.
The bathrooms were very dated.
Food was acceptable but nothing more. Indian oriented so not child friendly. And for sure not in abundance. Choices were very limited.
When we wanted to go for the Happy hour drink (25% discount on the drinks), they informed us it was not valid on that day...so we needed a few discussions at the reception desk, and obtained it finally.
The entrance of the national park is very near, so that is a +.
As mentioned in an other review, unfortunately we were NOT accompanied by security staff to our tents everytime.

Tents are a bit dated but very comfortable and spacious. Tha bathroom with 2 sinks makes it much easier when in need to get ready early morning at the same time.
Elecricity is a bit of a problem as goes off at night and....is really all black! They provide a torch and lods of assistance with the MAsai securities always present and ready to help; they will always walk you back to the tent! Food is good, specially teh barbecue night outside around a falo'!!! - Amazing to wake up with cowes browsing around your tent and monkeys jumping around on ur terrace, rememebre to lock ur tent at all times as monkeys can be very naughty!

Tents are a bit dark but, u soon get used to it as u get a feeling of safety at all times.
Great Masai real camp close by, ask your guide to take u fro a visit, u might like to bring soem treats as lods of kids around!!!
I woud definitely stay again!

I would stay there again but it's nothing to write home about. The staff is attentive. The food is decent. Wine overpriced. Kinda dark. Tents are a nice touch but starting to show their age. Electricity was good and shut downs a minor inconvenience although couldn't figure out the schedule as it was not as advised.

Hard to provide a rating.....First impression was great -- large tented rooms with nice bathroom - dual vanity & separate tower & bath tub. Unfortunately, had problems with electricty & didn't have power for room most of my 3 night stay --- while expected limited power due to scheduled times without power - I actually had none during time expected power & no other available rooms. Offered a free drink for troubles which hardly seemed adequate. Power outage was limited to a section of the property so most rooms had no problems at all. Food was good.
