“The best experience in Mara”
Reviewed December 6, 2010

Enkewa is special. I have been many times to the Mara but this camp and the warmth of the service received made it the most memorable of all visits. Jose, the manager takes you to the most interesting and beautiful corners, exploring the beauty of nature in the quiet company of the group. Keep it up!

Our stay in Enkewa Mara Camp was the most special moment of our trip in Kenya. We spent 3 amazing days with family and friends. The manager and Staff of Enkewa Mara Camp were very friendly and did all to ensure that we benefit from a very special moment in Masai Mara. The location of the camp was perfect and the rooms were really beautiful and confortable. Food was very nice, and we specially liked the breakfast and "apero" in the middle of the savannah. As for the safari, we were all amazed by the number of animals we saw. Last but not least we really appreciated how this camp is ecofriendly, everything is designed to preserve Masai Mara.

I've been living in East Africa for more than three years now, and I've been on a number of safaris. But last week's stay at Enkewa was somehow a different experience. The camp is amazing and very small, which makes you feel special. On safari, we didn't meet a single other vehicle, which is quite exceptional for a famous place like the Mara. This is because Jose and his boys brought us to less explored areas of the park where we were able to enjoy incredible and exclusive encounters with wildlife.
Have a look at this cheetah eating with its cub to understand what I’m talking about!
Gracias Jose and kudos to your staff, which made us feel at home.

We spent 5 nights in Enkewa Mara camp as part of a life time safari in Kenya. We had the best time ever. Not only the camp is beautifully set up, clean and with excellent service but also the safari drives are incredible, you will not see other vehicles for hours and this is because Enkewa is located in a remote off-the-beaten-track location.
The tents were very clean and nicely decorated, the service was excellent, the food was great. In sum You really feel special.
