I highly recommend this place if you are visiting the Mara. Rhino has many things going for it - great location (if you want to visit the Masai villages after a game drive, staying here would make that easy), great food, great staff. Few places in the Mara to also have a 'massage' centre.
Food: Everything is freshly prepared, wholesome and suited to all taste buds. Ask for a young chap named Peter - he will share his secret recipes with you. The green lentils, the soups, the pancakes and a variety of jams and butter will ensure you add extra calories!
Rooms: Electricity is generator-driven, so, as on all properties in the Mara, there are specific times when this is shut off. However it has never mattered - since you are out on the game drive anyway. Rooms are clean, the tents are safe, mosquito nets provided.
Hot water is available in the morning and evenings (its really HOT). Soap and bath towels provided. Rooms are clean, beds are large and soft, and blankets are fresh and smell good!
Plenty of places to walk around the camp - beer is served cold.
Staff are very friendly and helpful. Its also a great place to hang out with the Masai - a few can be seen around the camp as well.
