“Pleasant dwellings, great safari!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

The hotel was good value for money even though the food was very average and there was a rush to charge phones and cameras when the power was turned on in the evenings . The tents, especially the beds were comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful but there were issues with a non functional flush and leaky tap and since there was no one capable of attending to those ( a simple repair) we had to use the toilet in the adjoining tent which was unoccupied. We enjoyed a wonderful safari at the Masai Mara complete with sightings of the big five. A special mention of Tom, our efficient and endearing driver who made all the difference. We visited the nearby Masai Village which was a good experience but wish someone had warned us beforehand about getting fleeced by the Masai guide!

It was a lifetime memorable trip with my friends. We have done evening safari on the day we reached there. Next day we did full day safari, saw all Big Five and then has a wonderful dinner.
The tent has western style toilet and very good mosquito net. There was warm water shower, which was needed for morning bath, as temperature was low in morning.
The Chef has prepared special food for us, as we are used to eat spicy and well cooked food.

Great overall experience! We were very happy with everything, if you are looking for a budget-friendly safari, this is it. Nothing special for the food and accomodation but very helpful and nice people. Our special thanks to Kennedy our faithful driver. We would recommend this for anyone with an adventurous mind! Would definitely go back!

I and a Spanish family of three hand a kid where in Enchoro for 3 nights, as we drove from Nairobi we were expecting to rich masai mara reserve and camp outside the park.. to our suprise it turned out that even for our budget we had tent Chalets with beds and showers!
Its just 5 minutes drive to Olooimotia gate where the best game circuits to see the Cheetahs, secretary bird nests is near.. every team has there own chef and our chef was doing really well,
they haven't tempered with nature around, its also closer to the masai village as that can make your day complete after the full day game drive!
At the camp there is a knowledgeable Masai member of staff, Jonathan, very helpful with his friends Busia..
i would really recommend a stay here if you cant afford the inside lodges of the reserve..

I had a great experience and very happy that chosen this agency. The following three things were particilarly good:

1. Kennedy was a great driver and guide. He was very professional, knowledgeable, open and service-minded. He was careful and caring as a driver. He did his best to find animals and feel us safe and entertained. I would highly recommend him for next safari.

2. Maasai village experience was fantastic. My trip wouldn't be complete without meeting Maasai people, visiting their village and having dance with them. Moses was very helpful, open and told a lot about Maasai culture and traditions. I would also recommend visiting the village as a part of safari experience
3. When we went to Nakuru we stayed at City Max hotel, it had a good food and friendly staff

There is still a room for improvement for food in Enchoro camp. It didn't taste so much. I was also little dissapointed by the act that there were only few flamingo in Nakuru. I wish I knew when I booked that this is not the best season for flamingos. All other things were really great!

Three of us went to Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya recently. A friend recommended that I contact Albert Ouko Janeno of Enchoro Wildlife Camp for budget accommodation. Albert was quick to respond and it was a smooth process to book. He even accommodated our request to pay in Nairobi before departure as we were unable to make a wire transfer while booking. The camp itself is really good - basic but good. The staff is excellent. One of my friends is vegetarian and the chef ensured that she got a lot of vegetarian food to eat - amazingly thoughtful. We stayed for 2 nights and were very happy. Please remember that there is electricity in the camp only from 5.30 - 7.30 am and then from 6 - 10 pm (when you can charge your cameras and phones). This is sufficient time.

My friend and I went on our Safari with the Enchoro Wildlife Camp and it was really excellent value. All the staff were really friendly and extremely helpful. The accommodation was comfortable and completely fine for the 2 night trip. We really enjoyed ourselves and had so much fun. Our driver Tom was a very safe and sensible driver and incredibly knowledgable about the wildlife in the Mara. Having been on other trips to the Mara, this really was great value for money.
