This description was written by Rebecca who had the pleasure of staying here for two nights.
In a spectacular location in the heart of the Masai Mara, lies this small, intimate, luxurious and elegant safari camp. Well hidden in the beautiful greenery of riverine forest, Ngenche Safari Camp offers panoramic views over the confluence of the Mara and Talek Rivers, overlooking a hippo pool that is always busy with these beautiful large animals, and with crocodiles always nearby. Upon arrival, quietly take a few steps with a Masai warrior to walk through the main area, over to the camp's 'look-out point' at the river confluence and you might be lucky enough to see a 70 year old crocodile!
The 10 tents are very spacious, well-appointed, en-suite and decorated with an amazing fusion of modern African decor with old world charm. Each tent is partially enclosed in its own "Boma", has a large four poster king size bed or two queen size beds and offers a wonderful view of the either the Talek or Mara River depending on which side of camp you are. At sunset you'll return to your tidied tent to find copious scented candles lit for your large bath or outside shower. In addition, each tent has its own private plunge pool. Mara Ngenche is unfenced and is designed to allow the exciting movement of animals through the grounds while offering an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere for experiencing the full adventure of the African bush.
The incredible surroundings of the Masai Mara make this a spectacular safari experience. Game drives are always thrilling and are guided by qualified local Masai guides in open-sided 4-wheel drives, (with a maximum of six guest per vehicle). Guests can also learn more about the Masai people through cultural visits and entertainment by local Masai warriors, proud pastoralists, many of whom still retain their traditional nomadic lifestyle.
