“We really enjoyed our stay here”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We were in a wall room (no tented) and it fitted perfectly to us. There are a few choices for breakfast, lunch and diner, but all of them where really good and they change from one day to another. I was asked for help because mine was the only car at that time going to take some people which car broke in their way and it made me feel part of the community, where each one helps each other. Jackson was a friend for us in such place so far from home.

Oloolaimutia gate is the furthest gate to the main places of interest within Maasai Mara, but the reserve is not that large and we could explore it from one side to the other - we were into Mara Triangle - in a single day.

They got sometimes with problems with generator and dinner beginning time was always unknown. But for the chargers, if the electricity starts late by overloads after everybody returning from their safari, they ends it later too.

I only can recommend Rhino tourist camp.

We do not have experience with other camps in Masai Mara, but the impression we had of this camp was bad, compared to Amboseli and Tsavo East where our camps, at the same budget level, were by far extremely nicer.
Rhino Tourist Camp is located outside the gate in a very dirty and depressed area with a bad arrival impression.
The camp inside is clean and tidy but the level of the tents and the standard of the dining room and of the food is very poor.
I do not recomend it.

Just back from 3 days/2nights. Great communication prior to getting to Kenya. Don't expect luxury, but beds are comfortable and the place is clean. Poor guys who had spent 4 times more on basically the same experience - hey - you are out on the plains all day - who needs a swimmingpool? All you need is a bed and a roof over your head. Food decent.

Many thanks for a great experience

I did a 3 Days/2 nights Masai Mara Safari and i stayed at Rhino Camp. To be quite honest it was not what i was expecting since i was told i would stay in a budget camp.
When we arrived i was a bit shocked as i was expecting to stay in pitched tent but what i found was different.
The camp is actually a permanent camp with large tents which also happen to be self contained with comfortable beds. I could not believe i was having a HOT SHOWER in the wilderness.
I enjoyed the camp fire at night and also the beer after the Game Drives
The 2 nights i spent there was quite wonderful and i will definately make a point of visiting Rhino Camp once again.

We were looking forward for the long weekend in the Masai Mara during the migration. We have booked the accommodation, I have received a confirmation of writing that all is well. So far, so good - Ken was helpful and everything went smooth. But when it came to confirm the booking, I was waiting to receive the details for making a payment. For couple days, Ken did not communicate and when we called him, our reservation was cancelled and double booked. We had everything in writing and yet the camp double-booked our rooms. They did not offer any other solution. During this period, camp knows they will have enough guests anyway, so they do not need to care about good service, but it is appalling, not serious and simply bad customer care. I will make sure to let our friends and colleagues know that they cannot count on the Rhino camp.

After a whole day in a safari car, it's nice to have a cosy place waiting for you. Of course it's not luxurious but it's definitely comfortable and clean, which to me was enough. Also it was good that the rooms had their own bathrooms. The food there was also very good, I wasn't expecting that, way better than in many restaurants in Nairobi. One of the highlights to me was the bonfire. After dinner, almost everyone in the camp got together around it, people form all around the world exchanging experiences, very interesting.

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience at our campsite. We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay and welcome you to visit us again when you have another chance to travel to Kenya.

I am also pleased to mention that as of today we have renovated all our rooms so that both Wing A and B are of the same standard. We now have tiles in all the bathrooms as opposed to in one wing as was the case when you visited. All this is in an effort to make sure that guests staying at our campsite have comfortable and pleasant accommodation to compliment the Safari experience.

Once again, thank you for sharing your experience.
