We stayed here for 4days in March. I enjoyed every moment here. Most of the day we were out in the jungle. We were back for the lunch. Unfortunately it was very much warm in side the tents during the mid day. So much so I used to drag a arm chair to verandah and use to have a little...

Very nice property, tents are definitely luxurious, staff are friendly and helpful. Only negatives would be that the plunge pool was dirty on arrival and so we could not use it that day, bar service could be slow.

Mara Ngenche was wonderful. We were there on a 3-night safari (½ day, 2 full days, ½ day), hoping to see the wildlife of eastern Africa. Our hopes were more than fulfilled. The accommodation was luxurious – each “room” consists of a large tent (20x20 feet), with a bathroom tent adjacent with a modern flush toilet, and claw foot bathtub,...

We stayed two nights at Mara Ngenche this past weekend, driving down from Nairobi. It takes about 7 hours to reach the camp including a shortish stop. Paul who manages the camp greeted us on arrival.
