“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

What a place! Don't know where to start. Not much really to say, except we had a wonderful time. All our wishes catered for. The staff were truly amazing - right from the Manager to Elijah (the Chef - excellent food and he does a wonderful curry! And a Man Utd fan - a added bonus!), Raffel (maitre d extraordinair) to all the security staff who looked after us soo well. The family tent was wonderful and very comfortable. One thing to warn you about - there is a window in the bathroom that has no curtains - so anyone from the outside could look in when you were about your business! Not that there was anyone...but a little uncomfortable in any case.

The game drives were great fun - our guide Issac was a top man. Very knowledgeable, full of insight and was just fun to be around. He made the stay that extra bit special.

If you're heading to the Mara - I doubt you'll find a better place than this!
Give it a try!!

Tents are very, very nice! Did have some issues with getting a hot shower as the water had to be heated by fire and the bathroom windows looked right out to the fire builders so wear a towel! Food was very good but sometimes portions were small. The best part of This camp was by far the driver and our guide. Rony (driver and Yenko our guide) went out if their way to make sure we saw eventing on our list. Again they where the great!

We did request two tents and wound up with us sharing a very large tent with our son. We still had two bathrooms and a living room with a fireplace. Not bad for tented camping!

Wow! Entumoto rocks. We were the only guests and the service, the food, the accomodation was outstanding.
Big thanks to the brilliant Isaac who was our guide, he taught us a lot about the people, the game and life!
We loved Raffael - such a lovely maitre d and he looked after us at every meal making sure we had everything we needed.
Chef was super too and made sure my daughter's egg allergy was catered for. The food was super.

Our family had such a wonderful time. We would love to go back. Its a super place!
And we saw a cheetah kill! and 2 leopards!!

Thanks everyone...we hope to return one day soon.


ps: you may think staying outside of the park is a problem but actually its a benefit...we did night time game drives in the conservation area which you can't do in the mara itself.

I just returned from a four-day stay at Entumoto and I miss it already! First and foremost, the staff from top to bottom is excellent, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. One of the owners joined us for meals everyday which was a nice personal touch. The tents are spaced far apart - we couldn't even see another tent from ours. The game driver, Isaac, is phenomenal (he's Bronze level and very informed). Every single hour in the vehicle with him is catered completely to what the client wants. He was so patient and made sure we were happy and comfortable. You see plenty of game drivers out in the Mara who look miserable, serious, and are driving subpar cars that get stuck in the mud. Not Isaac! And Entumoto uses completely open air land cruisers that allow you to go wherever you want and you feel right there with the animals.
We had a picnic "bush" lunch or breakfast each day out in the savanna in the mara and a sun downer out on the lions rock overlooking the camp. One unique thing about Entumoto is they have their own fruit and vegetable garden and weave their homegrown produce into their meals. I highly recommend this place! You won't regret it.

My wife and me stayed at Entumoto for four days. Our time there was truly amazing. Entumoto is a tented camp with tents far apart and without any fences around it. This means that you're surrounded by nature and can enjoy the quiet. Guards accompany you in the morning and evening which was special in itself.

The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and socially engaged. Our driver Isaac was great, really taking the time and making sure you're seeing everything (we saw the "big five").

The food is also tasty, mostly homegrown and fresh. And having cold drinks on the Lion's Rock makes for a sundowner like no other.

Thanks to the staff we had an unforgettable time. We'll surely come back!

An excellent meeting point in Masai Mara to experience the wilderness of Africa. If you are planning to go on safari – choose this place! We loved it! They offer the best accommodation with a fantastic view over the landscape and very friendly staff. Must also mention our guide who really had an extraordinary knowledge about the nature.

We had a wonderful stay at Entumoto Safari Camp. We really appreciated that we could plan the days individually. Choosing a late breakfast and afternoon drive was as possible as an early breakfast followed by an early morning drive. The staff was available all the time and for all matters.
The food quality was also excellent. We were served fresh vegetables and fruits from their own garden in the camp. We enjoyed very good three course meals every day. Especially the New Year's BBQ was a hit.
Each of the tents are very private since they are far from the main tents and the other guest tents. In that way you can fully experience the feeling of being in wild nature.
The drives were really cool. You could see all kinds of animals already a few meters from the camp since the guides are very skilled in spotting them.
All in all, it was an extraordinary experience and a great introduction to Kenya. We would like to recommend the camp as an unique and beautiful place to stay at.
