Every night guests can stay at the front of the fireplace to talk with other guests and staff. When you go to bed, some guys will scort you...

A five night stay at the JK Mara camp in the Masai Mara national reserve was the highlight of our trip. The camp is run by Masai men from surrounding villages and the service was impeccable, kind and efficient. The tents were...

So nice place with comfy and clean tents surrounded by small trees. Great service from the masai people that runs the camp. Very good food both for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The camp is located just outside the park but is still a good choice for safari trips

From the camp to the park is just a short drive. Personal working in the camp are very kind and efficient. Food was good, and we were surprised...

The staff supplied with hot water every afternoon for shower and the beds were warmed up by hot water bottles before sleeping. All the meals were tasty and generous. The camp staff was very service minded. The tour...

Modest tented accommodation with toilet & separate manual shower stall, was clean and well maintained. We were entertained by a Masai dance put on by the staff members. The food was good. Our game driver Julius was excellent, we saw the most abundant wildlife in the Mara, right from the time we were picked up at the airstrip, our ride...

This place could do just a few small things to make the stay more enjoyable: 1) offer some real or better coffee. at breakfast we got hot water and a beaten up tin of "Africafe" instant coffee with a soiled spoon and an inch of coffee powder in the bottom. 2) show some interest in the patrons. there were 5...
