It is an average lodge camp. If you want to have a proper jungle feeling, you better stay in a tented camp because this place is more of a lodge type. The overall stay of mine was good. It has all the basic amenities and staff is very cordial. Food was average and safari around it was good. We spotted... More

OAT was getting us ready for the real deal on the Serengeti. This was a three sided canvas tent that had the back portion solid with a full bathroom at the back end. Nice way to break into real camping. Very clean. The goo was great. The staff was friendly.

We did not have wifi or internet access during our overnight stay at the Sentrim Mara. And it was "all good". Because we saved on lodging and used the money saved, to spluge on lots of souvenirs, as we exited the Maasai Mara Game Reserve.

Recently visited masai mara and stayed in this hotel for two nights. Whole facility is well located and is in side the bush, where there is no noise, no network no pollution,all natural experiance. Myself being vegeterian was a bit scared about food, but when reached there, to my surprise they had good vegeterian and asian dishes.
