We've visited Kenya twice in the past three years and did many game drives and game spotting. But at Mara Timbo Camp it was the first time we sometimes actually felt like staying at our room, sitting on the terrace over the river, just observing the wild-life.
The tents are large, comfortable, and secluded. They have outdoor bath tubs! No prying eyes. What more do you want?. The furniture is comfortable.
Every morning we had breakfast at the river bank, together with 'their resident' hippos. And in the evening even the elephants came down to the water. What an experience!
The food at the camp is delicious, high standard, three course menus.
On the second day we went on safari. It was beautiful, and also taxing. In the evening it was time for a massage at their tree-house for a perfect conclusion of a perfect day.
And one of the most beautiful experiences I had was, when we left the camp with the Masai naturalist and some askaris for a Nature Walk. A few hundred feet from the camp we ran into a herd of giraffes. Wow.
We stayed for a week. We will definitely be back for migration!
