We spent 3 days at mara Timbo as part of our honeymoon and the staff couldn't do enough for us! The tent is amazing, probably the most comfortable beds in whole of Africa! Everyday they lay flowers and in the evening they even put a hot water bottle to keep the bed warm for you. I can't fault the service,...

CAMP LOCATION: Although a bit further away from the entrance gate to the Mara Conservancy, we enjoyed our daily Mara Timbo Camp to Oloololo Gate drives. There was plenty of general game and some nice birding in the vicinity of the lodge and on route to the park. Being "Bush-crazy" made us look forward to this daily stretch of road....

We were very fortunate to stay at Mara Timbo Camp as part of our safari to the Masai Mara National Park. This is a small camp, only 9 tents/rooms but has all the amenities and luxuries you would want! Each tent/room had full services including a large sheltered patio/outdoor living area including open air tub. The staff were very attentive...

This property was fantastic- we stayed for 2 nights and are already planning our next trip back! The breakfast watching the hippos in the water was great. As you drive here you think- are you kidding- this is so out of the way!- But it was worth every second of the drive. Loved it!

Stayed at the Mara Timbo for 2 nights from the 14th May.The camp is a bit of a drive to get there and the road not the best however..... The camp with the en-suite luxury tents were fantastic far superior to our 4 star hotel near Mombasa. On the first night we were the only guests staying their and the...

We've visited Kenya twice in the past three years and did many game drives and game spotting. But at Mara Timbo Camp it was the first time we sometimes actually felt like staying at our room, sitting on the terrace over the river, just observing the wild-life. The tents are large, comfortable, and secluded. They have outdoor bath tubs! No...

We have been on a 14 days Safari through the main Nationalparks of Kenya by road. We dare say that Mara Timbo Camp is for sure one of the best camps we have been visiting during this trip. The set up of the camp is breathtaking at Mara River, hippos in front of you during breakfast and lunch. The tents...

My wife and me had been to Kenya three times before, because we love this country and its diversity of nature and wildlife. We had seen nationalparks like Amboseli and Tsavo East before, and last time shortly paid a visit to Masai Mara. We found out that we had to come back again for Migration and because of the beauty...

This was my second visit to Masai, and this camp was unimpressive compared to the camp I stayed at on the previous visit. To start off with, it is a long way outside the camp. In addition, the service is mediocre with unreliable and apparently poorly trained staff. On the first morning, I was woken up unnecessarily early when the...

Although isolated, this luxury "tent" surpassed our wildest expectations. King-size beds with thick brocade comforters, glass sinks in a well-appointed bathroom, a charming personal butler, delicious meals overlooking a hippo pool, it all took our breath away. Warning: the road getting there is brutal, but this magnificent camp is well worth it. The staff is intelligent, friendly and well trained...
