A friendly, welcoming camp, reached via a short river crossing in one of the Mara’s best locations inside the National Park itself. Just 17 en suite tents, each with a polished wooden deck, overlook a large water hole that teems with life. Breakfast and lunch are taken alfresco whilst the dining tent has spectacular vistas of the Masai Mara plains and Oloololo Escarpment – lanterns and candles adding to the romance as evening tales are swapped around the campfire. The prime location within the reserve means that guests here are out and about long before others have arrived, the highly experienced and passionate rangers knowing exactly where to head to for exceptional game sightings; for an alternative perspective, rise before dawn and glide silently over the Mara in a hot air balloon.
Prices per night on a full board basis with park fees and game viewing activities.
