This is our second Safari in Kenya but first time at Mara Ngenche. Of the 8 or so campsites we have stayed in Kenya this by far the best. The location right on the Mara River is first rate.

We spend a long weekend in Mara Ngenche tented camp. This place is uniquely positioned in the pocket where the Mara and Talek rivers meet. With just 10 tented accommodations, the attention and hospitality for the guests is simply outstanding. The tents have standard of a five star hotel room and services the same levels. Food is above all expectations....
