Mara Ngenche Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve

Closed April and May

Tucked into the thick vegetation of a riverine forest, Mara Ngenche Camp looks out over the confluence of the Mara and Talek rivers – an ideal location for river crossing action. Steeped in local history this is where the Maasai tribes would meet to share loot after raiding parties – Ngenche means “to share”.

The camp overlooks a pool that is filled to the brim with Hippo and Crocodile. Views out over the rivers are spectacular and the location provides excellent access to prime wildlife sightings all year round. Three tents make up the main guest area housing the bar, lounge and dining room. In front of the lounge is a well shaded deck, ideal for lunchtime meals or even a dinner under the stars.

Activities at Mara Ngenche Camp include morning and afternoon game drives and full day drives in the Reserve can be arranged with a picnic lunch. Sundowners in the bush, visits to the local Maasai village (extra cost) and Maasai dancers were great fun. Spa treatments can also be arranged in your room.

Tented Rooms

Sand paths through the bush connect the 12 rooms at Mara Ngenche with the main lodge and all are tucked away into the forest vegetation. 6 have double beds and 6 have twin or triple beds as needed. A hammock outside the front greets you and the interiors are very spacious!

A huge double bed draped with mosquito netting awaited us in our room that is tastefully decorated with Maasai influences but still quite luxurious too. The en-suite bathroom is also very warm with twin vanity basins, bath and outside shower.
