Fodor's Review

Getting to this camp is a mini adventure in itself. First you take a small boat that ferries you across the Mara River followed by a short, escorted walk with armed guides (so you don't become lion food) before arriving at this gorgeous little camp. You can be assured of superb service and comfortable accommodations. Each tent has an en suite bathroom with constant hot and cold running water and flush toilet. Lighting, as at many of the traditional Masai Mara camps, is by gas, kerosene lantern, and candlelight. If you're lucky enough to be here during a full moon, you can watch the game come and go at the large water hole in front of the camp. You'll eat superb home-cooked meals under a blue sky or at night in a candlelit dining tent. If you need to stretch your legs after a muscle-clenching, nerve-wracking game drive, go on a guided walking safari or visit a nearby Maasai village and join in the ipid jumping dance with the warriors.
