We had a very large group (15) for a three day safari. BREATHTAKING views! We had tent #3, was peaceful at night, enjoyed the safety of our own Masai Warrior to escort us around during hours of darkness. Drivers during the game drives were very attentive & knowledgeable. Food was five star quality, and so was the service. WE WILL BE BACK!

Room Tip: Don't forget to secure the tent when you are not around, Curious George is alive & well, swinging from the trees near your tent!

We had a wonderful experience! The conservancy is beautiful as is the wildlife and service! We saw all of the wildlife that we wanted to see and visited the Maasai village. The staff and guides are very friendly and knowledgeable.\ I would definitely recommend it!

This ecolodge has beautiful views of the conservancy. The facilities are outstanding and the people and extremely friendly and helpful. We had a magnificent stay and will definitely be back! The game drives are very well planned and an exceptional experience. 2 nights is a great amount of time.

Eagle View was our last stop on our safari before going down to the beach...Stunning, Breathtaking, Out of this World do not do this location justice. It is like a theater location and the Mara is the stage where the animals improvise every day in their quest for survival. The accommodation is world class. Beautiful room with an indoor and outdoor shower. Each night a guard watches over the rooms in case an animal decides to join you. In fact one night we heard a crunching, munching sound right outside and peeked through the curtain to see an Elephant 10ft from us grazing on a tree...that made the heart pound!!

The restaurant area was spectacular too. Overlooking the Mara and watching Vultures go past at eye level is an incredible sight to see. The food was very good and the staff exceptional. Between morning and evening safari's my son and I played football with the staff and local high school students. They have a makeshift field with posts and string for crossbars...the giraffes, gazelle and warthogs had to be shooed off before we could kick off though...

Anybody looking for an authentic safari experience without having to pitch a tent and sleep on the ground should consider Basecamp Explorer. They have the option of the on-ground safari too but this was a once in a lifetime experience and we would not have had it any other way.

Room Tip: Impossible...All spectacular...

Eagle View is located at a spectacular spot, with great accommodation and friendly service to match. Sadly only stayed the one night, but would highly recommend a longer visit.

I transferred to Eagle View via safari from their sister accommodation Basecamp. The hour or two drive went through varied landscapes with plenty to see - wildlife, fauna and local villages. Eagle View is in a very isolated spot, so entering the beautiful main lounge area takes every visitors breath away.

The accommodation is in spread-out luxury tents. I was in the end tent, which felt perfectly isolated with its view of the lush valley below. Giraffe grazed around my tent during the night - while herds of animals passed below during the day.

In summary:
- Spacious well constructed permanent tent with wooden floors and decking. Includes both an indoor and outdoor shower. Modern sit down flush toilet. Good water pressure.
- Plugs in tent for recharging batteries.
- Wifi in the main lounge, bat and kitchen area
- Highly recommend the morning safari walk
- Saw very few other safaris due to the isolated position
- Airstrip is about 30-40 minutes away on rough roads. Flights in small planes direct to Nairobi although they may stop at other airstrips on the way.
- Food was good quality
- There are no shops nearby - bring everything you will need (note - air transfers have strict weight limits)

Ask the Masai guides and guards to sing in the evening - they don't need a lot of encouragement and their voices are wonderful.

Very low stress place to stay. It is the middle of the African wilderness - so expect lizards, snakes and even the odd large mammal. Lots of bird life. Guards ensure everyone is safe from the local wildlife.

Would ensure that all additional changes - like credit card fees etc - are included in quote. Always pay in local currency - or you will likely get a bad exchange rate. There is a tip box which is evenly distributed to the staff.
