Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most truly beautiful places on earth. However, this is not the place for tourists looking for a western experience-you can find that elsewhere. If what you're after is an authentic African safari then look no further than the Masai Mara camp. The bumpy journey getting there further enhanced our African experience, as it is surrounded by luscious greenery, wildlife and the clearest sky I have ever seen. Immediately upon arriving we were greeted by the staff, who are not only wonderfully friendly, but they're Masai and brimming with knowledge about the culture and animals. The tents, if you could even call them that, are equipped with both a shower and a toilet, two beautiful beds and screened windows with a gorgeous view of the land. We couldn't have felt more secure as every employee went above and beyond our expectations to make us feel safe and welcomed. Waking up to that view every morning (always well-rested, I might add) was a gift, especially with the anticipation to see the most majestic animals in the world. The food was delicious and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. I cannot imagine how anyone could come away from such a gloriously peaceful and wonderful experience with such negativity. I have never in my life seen something so beautiful as Masai Mara. It would take a truly pompous and bigoted person to not recognize that. But, unfortunately for the world, those people insist on leaving their houses. I fell in love with Kenya in previous travels and had doubts that anything could ever top it, but the camp in Masai Mara proved me wrong. Masai Mara will forever be in my heart and was worth every second. If you're looking for an adventure that is otherworldly and exhilarating beyond belief, then come to the camp at Masai Mara.
