I must admit that the camp is beautifully located on the hills overlooking the famous Mara river, that's to start. It is very well kept, the new tents are elegant and comfortable, the service is mostly on its best (we were warmly welcomed by the camp manager, Monica, and at night we had a hot water bottle waiting for us in the bed, that was nice).
What we didn't like, was that we had no hot water in our tent - and this is kind of crazy when you think about the significant sum you're paying per night! Of course the manager said sorry about their solar panels that didn't work that day, but in my opinion a camp that is pretending to be a luxury one MUST have a backup solution.
Other thing we didn't appreciate - we ordered a small bottle of wine for dinner and we were very clear about the size, there was no room for a misunderstanding. As they didn't have the small ones they brought a regular bottle (without asking us whether we accept it) and the waiter was about to open it and serve us. That was not really classy!
The overall experience was fine, but I wouldn't say that it was amazing.
