We stayed in the main house full board for a week in August. The whole stay was simply magical. We had a dedicated house keeper who looked after us and a cook who made the most delicious meals. We ate like Kings and were treated as such too. The house rental also came with its own driver for private game...

My wife and I took our son to celebrate his 7th birthday to Mara Enkipai. We all stayed in a beautiful and luxuous tent by the river facing the Hippos.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Jacqueline Roumeguere-Eberhardt was born and raised in Northern Transvaal, South Africa and initiated as a Venda Princess. She studied Anthropology in The Sorbonne in Paris where she met her first husband Pierre Roumeguere. They set off together on many adventures in Africa, Pierre as a Diplomat and Jacqueline working for the French National Council of Scientific Research (CNRS). In the early 60’s, after spending 3 months in the desert looking for the Lost City of the Kalahari, they ended up in Kenya where Jacqueline decided to record the Maasai people’s amazing ceremonial cycle. She spent her whole life photographing, filming and observing ceremonies that may never happen again. She fell in love with Ole Kapusia, a young and valiant warrior who not only helped her with her research but also raised her three French children, Isabelle, Carolyn and George. In 1979, Jacqueline and Ole Kapusia built a family home, Mara Enkipai, where Jacqueline spent a lot of time writing. Her last book yet to be published is called ‘My husband’s six wives….’. By the time she finished writing it, Jacqueline was the first of Ole Kapusia’s nine wives. Jacqueline’s writing refuge has now been opened by George & Vanessa Roumeguere, her son & daughter-in-law. The couple aspire to share with each guest a little of the passion, adventure and culture of this unusual family home. ... more   less

“Don't forget to just relax and enjoy the river ... and do ask the staff about Jacqueline Roumeguere, the lady who built her little house next to the river.”

“They didn't want us to open the windows at night, even though it was hot inside and we had mosquito netting. The explanation was that the monkeys would get in. They did let me tie the window handles in a way that keep them open but not enough for the animals to enter. Luckily I had some parachute cord with me!”

“The tents by the river are wonderful, but be prepared for no running water and iffy toilets. I still recommend them.”
