THE MAASAI MARA
OUR FAVOURITE PLACES TO STAY
Entim Camp was designed with a purpose in mind: to be in the best possible location to view the wildebeest migration in the Maasai Mara game reserve. For a few months of the year the migration is on the doorstep on the Mara River.
While many other visitors to the Mara will be staying in camps in the surrounding areas and conservancies, at Entim you don’t have to drive for hours to get to the wildlife action because you are right there in the middle of it. Nor do you have to be hurried out of the Reserve before the gates close; at Entim you can continue to witness the wild’s most important and dramatic events, which often take place at dusk and dawn. There’s actually no obligation to go out on game drives because you can sit in camp and watch the animals passing by right in front of you.

Ashnil Mara Camp, located in the Masai Mara National Reserve and close to the Mara River, famous for the wildebeest migration. The luxury Masai Mara Camp is arguably in one of the very best positions in the Masai Mara for game viewing and also provides the perfect setting to sit and relax at the end of an exciting day of game drives.
The central guest area has a contemporary feel throughout, with a vast dining hall under canvas serving buffet-style meals. In a separate section is a huge open-sided lounge bar, where an extensive choice of drinks is served. Just below the main deck is a lovely swimming pool with a curving terrace where traditional African dinners are sometimes served under the stars. Bush dinners in the boma are special occasions, with cultural displays such as dancing and storytelling around the fire.
A line of forty luxury tents along the river offers elegant and modern double or twin suites. Décor is light and natural, with splashes of colour in the ethnic rugs and throws adding an African feel.
Kichwa Tembo Camp
Laid out along the Sabaringo River on the edge of the Oloololo escarpment, &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Maasai Mara Tented Camp looks out onto the plains of the Maasai Mara. Set on a private concession leased from Maasai landlords in the north of the Mara, the camp offers total seclusion and abundant wildlife.
Simple yet contemporary, the Maasai-inspired suites are elegant and timeless, firmly entrenching &Beyond Kichwa Tembo as the unrivalled luxury tented camp of its size in the greater Mara. As guests arrive at &Beyond Kichwa Tembo, they are instantly welcomed by the commanding view. The spacious guest areas incorporate split-level spaces where guests can relax and unwind. The different layers can accommodate high guest volumes in peak season, yet still provide a sense of intimacy during quieter times. The large windows invite the Mara inside, making it feel like part of the guest area.
Entumoto Safari Camp
Entumoto is a private tented safari camp elevated in the hills of the Rift Valley, commanding breath-taking views and sunsets over the Mara plains. The camp has a private conservancy to give you a more intimate and exclusive safari experience as well as direct access into the Maasai Mara reserve. With no fences between the park and the conservancy all the animals you get in the Mara have free reign to come in and out of the conservancy – which is especially exciting during the Great Migration. Entumoto means meeting point in the local language Maa, which fits well as the camp is situated where the plains meet the hills and where two valleys come together.
Entumoto Main has four family and three double en-suite tents. The family tents include two double or twin rooms, two bathrooms and a central lounge with a fireplace – comfortably furnished with a table and two divans (which can double as beds). Each tent has its own veranda where you can enjoy an early morning coffee, relaxing afternoon on the sofas or a sundowner in the evening… and remember you are in the African bush so keep your eyes peeled for wildlife in the camp. All tents have electricity, hot showers, double sinks, dressing gowns, hot water bottles and breath-taking views over the conservancy.
