Amazed at the accommodations- luxurious tents, spacious, and in the middle of the Mara! Hearing the sounds of animals at night was a special treat and sitting on our deck, watching animals across the river was peaceful...

The "tents" are like a large, comfortable hotel room. Walls are canvas, but you can control the view and light through rolldown windowlike openings that have a fixed mosquito net behind. The wet part is masonry and the elevated floor is wood. A mosquito net circles the bed. There are warnings about electricity cuts - after midnight - and availability... More

Very good location, just in the park with many animals wandering around. Our safari guide John Sakut made the whole experience memorable, with his good knowledge of local flora and fauna, patience and flexibility of what we want to focus on. The tents are super nice inside! Food selection could be better but given it's 8hrs away from big city... More

With a high level of respect to the natural environment, top class lodging and a very qualified service in a fabulous parc packed with great wilderness, we have spent a great time. It is worthwhile to spend at least 3 to 5 nights to enjoy fully about this place of peace. Thank you!

This is THE best you get for your money in the mara. Great tents that are really just like a luxurious room. Well placed in the park, it offers a view on the talek river and small crocodiles meters from your room with a fence in between. Sleep to the sounds of the savannah, lions, hippos.... get the chance to... More

We loved this place. The tent was breathtaking with wooden floors and the lamps on the headboard under the mosquito netting. The shower was hot, the food delicious, and the ambiance romantic. Highly recommend tent # 26.

Lovely place. Nothing to fault. Tents are well equipped and the team gets them ready for the night with hot water bottles inside the bed and mosquito nets. Our tent was far from communal areas but overlooked the river and we saw some animals crossing it from our terrace. They wake you up in the morning with a hot drink... More

Tents are modern, stylish, clean, and cozy. They're situated along the Mara River, where animals like baboons can be seen. Coffee and hot chocolate are brought into the tent during wake-up calls. Location is great too as it is situated in the middle of the Masai Mara Reserve. Food tastes good (especially the dinner menus), is always served fresh and... More
