I have written dozens of reviews on TripAdvisor, and issuance of a five-star rating by me is RARE. Here is one of those exceptional cases.
This camp reminds me of a sign I once saw:
"If you are in a hurry, you are probably in the wrong place."
This camp is great for those ready to unwind and relax, and/or use as a base for safari runs.
The Mara Eden Safari Camp is just a great place to be. The rooms/tents are wonderfully decorated with every tiny detail you could imagine. The camp is not huge, which provides a level of cozyness and an opportunity to get to meet your nearby campers. I was never clear whether the camp is in or out of the park, but it's all a blurry line anyway since there is wildlife everywhere. The rooms were so comfortable, so quiet, so relaxing, I almost forgot we were there to go on a safari. They were that great!
And it still gets better: The food. Not a slab of cold cuts and a tossed salad and juice. This place truly cooks up good quality meals and in good portions. By no means are you "roughing it" on the food options (or sleeping for that matter). Finally, the staff. The South African owner was uber uber friendly and caring. She spent time to get to know guests, was always full of great stories to tell during dinnertime over the evening campfire, and went the extra mile to help guests with needs. The two young men who assisted her were friendly and welcoming throughout and even offered to take some of us on a walking safari.
I highly recommend anyone coming to the Masai Mara to consider this camp. It provides an excellent value and is absolutely a wonderful place to relax and wake up bright and early each day to start your Safari adventure.
