    This was the final lodge on our week long safari, and once again we weren't disappointed. The rooms (or "tents") were spacious and clean and the food was good. We had a room overlooking the river, where is was cozy to sit when the sun set and just look out over the river.

    The game drives in Masai Mara were the best of our trip. Plenty of lions, a cheetah, hippos, large birds of prey and much, much more.

    The only negative was that on one occation our room cleaners didn't replace the lock for our tent, so it was open for anyone to enter. Nothing happened though, and as I understood it not all tents had locks at all.

    The camp is quite large, so to some rooms there's a long walk from the restaurant to your room, and to the cars. We had such a room, but it didn't bother us much.

    Room Tip: If you have problems walking longer distances, ask for a room close to the reception.

    Arrived to a refreshing drink and refreshing towel wipes. The place is set in beautiful grounds and environment. Comfortable and friendly accommodation. Excellent food and service. Dishes are cooked fresh and the staff were all very friendly. The tents were very comfortable and we celebrated my boyfriends 30th birthday there. The game drives from fig tree were also good and the guide very knowledgeable and keen to show us many animals.

    Our Safari's were incredible! We traveled to the camp with friends from England and stayed 3 days/2 nights. Masai Warrior William, our guide, and Daniel, our driver, made sure we had a great experience. We watched a pair of hunting cheetahs and saw a rhino with her baby.

    We could have stayed in their "N" tents (the best level), but opted for their standard rooms. Our tent rooms overlooking the river were quite luxurious and we sat on our balcony and watched crocs and hippos in the water. On the opposite bank was a tree with a colony of beautiful yellow weaver birds, weaving their hanging nests from the grasses they harvested.

    The staff was very courteous, the beds comfortable, the safari's unforgettable, but the food made the experience much less enjoyable than it should have been. The quality was good, but the only way you could get a hot meal was if you chose something that was cooked on the spot. Everything else was either luke warm or cold, even the soups and gravies! Potatoes were tough and rubbery as if they had been in the fridge overnight and then reheated. We speculated that perhaps it was a cultural belief that we were unaware of, or perhaps they were cooking everything over a candle. In only 3 days I found myself eating only the salads and deserts, rather than have another unenjoyable meal, and it takes a lot to spoil my appetite!

    Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the river. The "N" tents are about 50% larger than the regular tents, but the regular tents had a queen and a single bed which was plenty of room for the two of us.

    Booked fig tree camp because Mara Serena, Keerobok which were our choice was full. The only good thing about this camp was that first day we checked in at 4, got late for lunch, informed them and they kept the entire buffet on for us. That was like really good as we had missed breakfast also that day and were supper hungry after long 6 hours on Masai roads. But that's about it. Rest of the 2 nights were disappointing. First of all it is built in such a way that walk from van to room is like a km. We had tents on talek river and walk is pretty long. We went for game drive then at 4:30 pm, and there was not many animals in the area. 2 hrs were not enough to go far off. Then for dinner variety was just about average. The good thing was this was only camp we stayed at had a vegetarian live counter. But variety was limited. Once I went at live counter and chef told me he will get me noodles on the table. But they never arrived. Then there was no one to escort us to the room in the night and light was very dim. Next day we took packed lunch and went for full day game drive. Variety at dinner was much less as what we got at other camps/lodges.
