We have stayed at Marta's and Jose's Enkewa "paradise" in January 2013 and it has been the highlight of the entire trip to Kenia visiting the Samburu, the Masai Mara and Malindi. Everything went so smooth, from the booking and during our stay.
The team at the Enkewa Mara is extremely warm and friendly, the game drives in their open safari jeeps had been simply amazing. We also spent one full day in the wild, having breakfast and lunch in the bush, which was truly wonderful. Most of the time we've been off the beaten tracks and away from the minivan crowds. Jose and the Masai spotter were very knowledgable and fun, and were very lucky to see even hard to see animals.
The camp is located in beautiful nature and it is equipped and furnished very tastefully. The tents are luxurious and very spacy, each with an enclosed bathroom with warm bucket shower and private terrace. But what really impressed us the most, is how Marta and Jose are involved with the local Masai people and their level of support towards them.
During our stay we felt more like friends than just guests and I recommend this place to everyone who want's to have an unforgettable safari experience away from large and mostly impersonal lodges or being stuck in minivans following only the beaten paths.
We will definitely return!
