We spent 2 nights at the Loyk Mara camp in early December and had a truly fantastic time. The tented accommodation is beautiful, very large and clean with a luxury en-suite bathroom. The location is on a conservancy so it's a bit of a drive to get to the 'proper' Mara, and by that I mean the bit you see on TV, but we heard lions roaring outside both nights which was awesome. We were the only guests on the first night. The staff were attentive without being overbearing. The food is average, we weren't blown away by it, but it was nice enough and certainly there was a lot of it. We never went hungry! There were no tea and coffee facilities in the room but we asked and a tray was brought to our room to help us warm up after a wet game drive. We did have a problem with the hot water and early December is a bit chilly so we really wanted a hot shower! We let one of the staff know and within minutes there was a maintenance man dealing with it and the manager came out too. It was fixed within 15 minutes and this was at 6.30am! I'd recommend you inform them if you have any problems at all because they're only too eager to make your stay perfect. Small problems are a fact of life but it's how you deal with them that counts and they dealt with it so well. You should definitely take the option of a full-day game drive with a packed lunch if you can. We had the best day and ate our lunch by the river in view of a male lion lounging on the savannah!! I'd happily stay at Loyk Mara again and would recommend it to friends and family.
