Mara Ngenche Safari Camp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 4, 2011

A brand new property, with just six luxury tents (all with private bathtubs and open to air showers) and solar lighting & heating, located at the V junction of the two biggest rivers in Masai Mara - the Mara & the Talek.
Each tent has it's dedicated masai Warrior Guard, for your safety while you are in the camp 24*&!
The location ensures lots of wildlife walk-throughs the camp at night, like Elephants, Hippos and the occasional big cat!
Annemette, the Camp Manager, - a Danish American vet who's been living in the Maara since 1994 - and her highly committed and dedicated team cater to your personal requirements with smile and grace.
The food is classy too! Here in the jungle, every meal is sit-down service with four courses and a choice of three non-veg (red meat, white meat, seafood) & 2 veg options for the main course. The desserts are to die for! We put on weight!
Tome Lukas, our Masai driver-guide, has a keen eye for game and wildlife and is a guide that most other guides in the Mara look up to!
All in all, a truly enjoyable stay! Exceeded all expectations!

Room Tip: All six rooms are secluded with thatched fences, so provide privacy. Probably, Room 6, right at one...

We enjoyed nature and experienced raw wilderness with luxury thrown in with minimum fuss. Tents are large and kept spotless, we stayed in tents 4 and 5, both overlooking the mighty Mara River. The family enjoyed breakfast and lunch with crocodiles, hippos, elephants and the poor wildebeests who did not make a successful crossing in the background. We witnessed a wildebeest crossing on approach to the camp and there are a couple of nearby crossings points. On the way to the camp we witnessed giraffes sparring, elephants and a lone hippo in the middle of the path. Just as we got to the bush for our sundowner drinks a black rhino walked past. Catering is overlooked by the excellent chef Simon and his brilliant team, enjoy meals on par with the best restaurants. Both the guides Lucas and Milton are excellent. Milton was incredible at pointing out animals and knowledgeable regarding the history and behaviour of these animals, in fact he was genuine in love with nature and passionate in protecting and preserving the Mara ecosystem. None of the cruisers have the irritating two way radios which tend to disturb and infringe on the sounds of nature. Finally the camp manger , Annemette who was amazing at making sure nothing went wrong with our stay and at the same time was almost invisible, she demonstrated a combination of absolute professionalism and the warmest hospitality. i am a seasoned visitor to Mara and have stayed at a number of camps and she stands head and shoulders above every other camp managers. All the people at the camp did everything to make our stay memorable and we will definitely be back in next year or two.
