Maybe your local zoo has lions, leopards, zebras or elephants. Maybe they even have wildebeest. But we bet they don't have 1.3 million wildebeest—never mind 1.3 million wildebeest in migration, with predators in hot pursuit. It's one of the most awesome sights in nature, and you can see it at Masai Mara in southwestern Kenya.

Overlooking the Talek River, at the very confluence of Mara’s four game-viewing areas, Mara Intrepids Camp enjoys one of the most spectacular locations in the world’s best-known wilderness.
The experience was beyond our expectations, we were wowed by almost everything and everyone?. Most of the tents have breathtaking views of Talek River, the sounds of the river sings lullaby to you and the hippos offers the wake up call to you. The standards on food, house keeping, game drives and the rest of the amenities are just perfect, we are already looking forward to sending our guests your way to experience the same. Special thanks to Mr Kevin Achungo and his team for the incredible pampering (can't forget to mention Geofrey and his team at Mara Explorer, Simon the guide, Mary, Duncan among others)...amazing team. The Bush breakfast was just amazing! We highly recommend Mara Intrepids and Mara Explorer, already looking forward to our next stay.

This camp is a small, beautifully run camp. The attention to detail is fantastic, the staff amazing & the food delicious. We loved the personalised attention we received. We loved that we had the same room attendant, Gideon, who was fantastic... Even getting up at 4am to make sure we had coffee before our trip out. Isaac, our guide was wonderful. We saw so many animals & learnt so much from him. He catered to our every need & suggested activities that we may like. His enthusiasm for his park & the camp was very evident. i would recommend this camp highly & hope to return one day.

We had an amazing time here! The staff were so courteous and thoughtful...truly went above and beyond to make our stay special. James, our safari guide, was incredible! He knew exactly where to go to see animals. We saw a leopard, elephants, lion cubs, hippos, cheetahs and so much more! Our accomodation was peaceful, clean, and very comfortable and safe. We stayed in number 7 and had a remarkable view from our porch. We loved it here!

Welcome to Fig Tree Camp.
One of the best located camps in Mara. Surrounded by the river on three sides, you can't ask for anything better. Wake up to the sounds of animals and birds and feel being one with the nature. You step out of the camp and one is greeted with hundreds of herbivores grazing on the endless plains. The staff is excellent, supremely curtious, ready to look into your minute requests. Mr Kerore, the manager, is always present to run the show impeccably. Vivian, the young Masai girl, at the frontdesk will make you feel so special. I spent 3 nights and want to come back sooner than later....

The property is excellent with all facilities one could expect at a five star hotel. To find that inside the Mara was a delightful experience. Chef Juma Musili obviously lead the F&B production team to an exotic menu catering for all needs. It was very well executed by Chef Kennedy Aluvi. Of particular delight was Chef Moses Bonaya who not only made excellent pasta and pancakes at the live counter but also played excellent guitar and sang for guests. The rooms were very tastefully decorated and comfortable. However no slippers and shaving kit was provided. Neither was there a safe deposit. But the bed was excellent and so was the view from window. The swimming pool provided excellent recreational facilities and also mesmerising view of sunrise over Mara. Overall the staff was very friendly and always eager to help. Two particular team member Denis Meangi and Patricia were worthy of mention. Payments only by credit cards and local currency. No US $. Lastly, Airtel network including 4G was available throughout the Masai Mara National Park!

Just a short drive from the airstrip Keekorok Lodge was built in 1962. It's a lovely, traditional place. The staff made us feel really welcome and we were so comfortable in our individual cabin. The ensuite shower was great. The gardens are delightful and the swimming pool was a joy, we were entertained by the monkey marauders. The pool bar opened up just for us and we had the place to ourselves which was bliss. We stayed 4 nights and would recommend this as there's so much to see in this vast national reserve. The food was great, and the chef catered for my special diet in a considered and creative way which was really appreciated. The staff were so kind and helpful and very well trained. Some aspects of the decor are a little dated but it doesn't matter - this is an atmospheric, charming and traditional place and we loved it!

Located in the world famous Masai Mara, Mara Explorer Camp is set on its own private peninsula, with each of its ten luxurious tents opening to the Talek River and the stunning savanna. The tents, equipped with all mod cons are set on wooden decks opening out to a private verandah where you can enjoy time alone in the wild away from it all.
Stayed at the Mara Explorer the last three nights of my first trip to Kenya and I couldn’t be more pleased. The camp is rustic and beautiful. Watching the hippos play in the river was a highlight. The staff was superb! Our butler made sure we were comfortable at all times, our driver knew where to spot the best animals, and the security team ensured we were always safe (the property is undenied). The food was AMAZING and plentiful. All the staff really made an effort to make us feel welcome, at home, and special.

The setting is magical. So much so that almost a century ago it was reserved, exclusively, for Kenya’s colonial Governors. Governors’ Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, it’s waters teeming with bird-life, hippo and crocodile, in the heart of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. Created in 1972, Governors’ Camp set new standards in luxury for a tented camp. Today it’s still Africa’s best. Governors’ Camp was the first permanent tented camp in the Masai Mara and it occupies the best wildlife viewing location in the National Park. The location of the camp was considered so good that during colonial times it was reserved for the colonial Governors of Kenya, hence the name Governors’ Camp. Today the camp enjoys the same prime location and is perfect for couples, families and friends wanting to experience the best of what a safari in the Masai Mara has to offer. The entire camp is under canvas with all of the comforts of a luxury hotel. Some of the 37 tents line the riverbank, tucked into the forest they enjoy uninterrupted views over the Mara River, others have views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara. The tents are big, bright and allow in lots of natural light. All tents are classic safari style each with en-suite bathrooms and a private verandah. There is a bar tent with deck overlooking the Mara River and dinning tent with views over the plains. Please also be sure to enquire about our Spa tent which offers a range of treatments including facials, massages, manicures and pedicures. Governors’ Camp has been awarded a Silver Eco Rating from Eco – Tourism Kenya due to our sustainable tourism practices in place in camp.
Governors Camp has a magical quality about it and it would be correct to say its location in the Mara is stunning, with incredible wildlife and savannahs surrounding it. But the staff make the camp truly exceptional. Every single person working at Governors Camp goes out of their way to make you feel like visiting royalty and help you create an unforgettable trip. The hospitality, food, service and comfort are first class but I really appreciated the joy and love the staff have for the wildlife and the land. It is contagious and I enjoyed sharing and swopping stories of the day and all the sightings. Julius and Mark made the drives an education with their knowledge and sightings and I came away with an enhanced love of the country, the Mara and the culture. Thank you to everyone at Governors for a wonderful trip. I hope to be back very soon.
