After several 'could be anywhere' hotels, it was wonderful to arrive at Sentrim Mara and be shown to our tented lodge. The lodges are dotted around the property with well lit pathways leading back to the main complex - at night you'll be escorted by the ever helpful Askari (security staff). Our tent was spacious and clean and had a...

Stayed here for three nights, the first night I must admit I didn't sleep much, first time in a tented lodge, and first time in Kenya, so the mix of strange animal noises and feeling a little uneasy left me a sleepless night . But next day I was fine and loved it! The staff at the lodge were wonderful...

What I loved most about Sentrim was that I had no expectations and was pleasantly suprised with the culinary skills of the Chef (kudos) and the service from the waiters (Especially David) and room attendants. The tented cottages are simple and comfortable. However I feel with a little more color and decor in the rooms, reception and restaurant areas...it will...

Sentrim had a special offer and so I went there with the family. Nothing to write home about. Food mediocre. Service mediocre. Rooms not so good. The first room I was given did not have any hot water. The second one had the lights coming and going thru the night. The third one the wash basin was clogged so the...

Very cozy tent cottages just a very short drive from the Maasai village and the start of your game drive. They have power in the morning and evening for lights and charging gadgets. Recommend bringing a 3 into 1 plug as there is usually only 1 outlet available. The food is tasty, the beer is cold, and the staff is...

After seeing the other camps on the drive to Masai Mara I was not expecting much more than a simple tent. I'm very happy to say that I was wrong! Sentrim is such a wonderful place to stay and is absolutely beautiful. It is a "glamping" experience. Our tent/lodge had three large beds and a porch to sit on in...

The lodge has a number of cottages and tents around the fenced property. The experience is actually a very novel one, as it is a raised frame structure with a tent underneath. The tent concept works quiet well as it seals the inside away from the mosquitoes in the evening. For double safety against them, an attendant comes in every...
