Crocodile Camp: Cheap campsite Massai Mara
We had our own vehicle and spent 4 nights in Crocodile Camp outside the Massai Mara (litterally 200 m from the gate which is so much cheaper) and hired than for the game drive a woman massai guide from Crocodile Camp. I have been all over Africa in many many safaris but I can say that the Massai Mara with the private guidance of this girl was the best safari experience I ever had!

Fairmont Mara Safari Club: Great Game Viewing Deck
Mara Safari Club is one of the premier Safari Accommodations in Kenya. The deluxe Mara Safari Club is situated in the Ol-Choro Oiroua Conservation Area at the foot of the Aitong Hills. It is surrounded by the Masai Mara Game Reserve and the three sides of the club are neighbored by the Mara River making it the ideal Tented Safari camp in the African wilderness. I stayed at the camp during a Travel Consultants retreat in 2002 and was amazed that each tent actually had a shower with running hot water. Very comfortable beds, great service and nothing beats the sound of nature at night.
There is a viewing deck from which you can see hippos, crocodiles and other animals. It is by the Aitong Hills.
It is a little on the expensive side but you will get your money’s worth. It has 50 tents most of which have twin beds, warm showers and mosquito nets to keep of the deadly African mosquitoes. The Club has a dining room is the main building made of wood beams and glass. The high-ceilinged, spacious dining room where we dinned on each of the three nights we were at the club.
We did enjoy two game drives and a visit to the Masai village

Masai Mara : Nyumbu Camp: Masai Mara : Nyumbu Camp
The Nyumbu Camp is situated in the interior of Masai Mara, the area after the Talek Gate and is very near the Game viewing areas. It is about 7 kms from the Talek Gate market Area.
We went in November 1st week , with the short rains and had to cross a few water enundated areas.
Unique Quality: The Camp has a small Brook on the backside. With an hours rain the Brook completely transformed itself toa stream.

Mara Sentrim.: Could be better.
The Mara Sentrim was definitely better than the Sentrim in Amboseli. The room was much nicer and the staff were at the same very good level. What lets the Sentrim chain down is the food. Although not bad, there just isn't the choice of other lodges we stayed in.

Mara Serena Lodge: Top Class
We spent two nights in this Lodge and it was our first on the Safari. It certainly set the standards high. The welcome and check in were profesional and friendly. The rooms were very clean and tidy with warm and friendly decorations. Mosquito nets were strung over the beds. The lodge was set high on a hill overlooking the game park. Food was excellant with a good variety for all meals. The staff were at all times attentive and helpfull.
Unique Quality: Set high above the Masai Mara with an good view of the plans below.

Sarova Mara Game Camp: A Permanent tented Lodge
Sarova Mara Game Camp
Just inside the gate of the Maasai Mara National Park is our lodge. It’s laid out like a camp with a main building housing the reception area, gift shop, restaurant and bar. Out room is in a tent. This is a tent like no other we’ve ever seen. The bathroom has granite counter tops and a huge shower. There are gorgeous hardwood floors and a comfortable King size bed. We enjoyed listening to the animal sounds during the night . the only drawback is there is no net over the bed. We brought ours and I think it would be really important during the rainy season.

Mara Serena Hotel: Mara Serena
This was our first time at the Mara Serena. This is part of the chain of luxury hotels/lodges. We had previously stayed at Kilaguni several times, but this was quite different.
The rooms look particularly ugly from the outside, somehow out of place with the Mara, looking distinctly man made. I would have preferred the traditional reed/grass roof and of a colour that blended into the background.
Inside, however, the rooms are charming. Lots of masai beading, hidden lighting and curvy decorations.
Unique Quality: Before the electric fence was erected, two zebra galloped through the lobby hotly pursued by a lioness. The dozy tourists wandering around the lobby looking at the shop, decorations etc completely missed thunder of hooves and the zoom of a lioness. Staff with any presence of mind vaulted the reception desk or the bar top and hid. Tourists were left scrabbling for their cameras and missed the whole thing. One zebra took a flying leap and landed in the swimming pool. It took the staff 2 hours to get it out. It was somewhat shell shocked, but very clean. No one knew what happened to the other zebra or lioness.
Personal experience: Hubby and I were tired after 2 mornings of getting up at 2am our time to go on a game drive so we decided on a snooze after breakfast. A lovely morning, we left the windows open. Having been reading *Maneaters of the Kumaon by Jim Corbett* I was slightly twitchy and acutely aware of a thumpy noise and the feeling of being watched. I cracked an eye open to see a great big male baboon in the room. I shrieked at hubby who sat up and said *go away*. Feeling that the baboon neither knew English nor was properly intimidated by the mild tone I jumped up, waved my arms and danced on the bed doing a superb Lion Roar impression. The baboon started shrieking as well, grabbed my packet of earplugs and the hotel bill and disappeared as I chucked a cushion at it.
The whole dozy latemorning camp was in turmoil, like a kicked ant's nest. Staff running around, Masai warriors, spears agleam, jumping up to vantage points to search further, panicked guests, cameras at the ready, peering from behind trees and their barstools inquiring querelously *have you seen the lion?* I must admit, I felt quite proud of my lion roar impression.
The gardener rushed up to see if we were alright, retrieved the cushion, the earplugs and the bill (I had a sneaking suspicion that the baboon was not going to pay it) and handed it all back to me. *Keep the windows closed Madame* he said wearily to me. So I did.

Safari camps in Oloolaimutia: Safari camps in Oloolaimutia
Oloolaimutia village has 2-3 different safari camps where tourists stay overnight. The camp is right outside the fenc, but the close distance from the park entry to the village makes this a good base camp. A lodge inside the park will cost the safari companies several times more than just a basic campground.

Safari Butchery and Hotel: Safari Butchery and Hotel
Safari Butchery and Hotel in Oloolaimutia village is maybe not a place where tourists stay when they are on safari. But this hotel is frequently used by kenyan drivers when it's not more space in the safari camps. Oloolaimutia village is the last stop before the national camp, and is also the largest masai community in the Masai Mara area.

Mara Serena Safari Lodge.: Three fantastic, unique retreats in Masai Mara
Unique Quality: Concealed deep within the Masai Mara National Reserve, the Mara Serena Safari Lodge is the ultimate safari destination. Set high on a bush-cloaked hill, embraced by arcing vistas and washed by a sea of richly rolling grasslands, it stands centre-stage to one of Africa ’s most dramatic wildlife arenas and has a ringside seat for the greatest wildlife show on Earth, the legendary migration of the wildebeest.
Drawing its inspiration from the traditional Maasai cultural motif of a cluster of domed, mud-coloured huts encircled by a “Boma” of brushwood, the Mara Serena offers a rare blend of raw African splendor and sumptuous sophistication. The essentially ethnic décor also draws on a vibrant colour-palette of sun-burst colours, embellished by a unique selection of Maasai art to create the look and feel of a traditional bush encampment. The lodge features individual rooms, each with their own balcony and view of eternity, a sky-blue swimming pool and a spectacular restaurant, overlooking a water hole where a fantasia of creatures collect to drink.
