    We were staying at Nyumbu Camp and like most camps , night time activities are minimal.

    Due to the openness of the camp , we had t be escorted everytime we needed to step out of our camp and go for dinner or any other activities which meant us leaving our tent.

    Because of this I requested the suggested the staff that they should plan something for guests for some evening entertainment.

    And voila...after we finished dinner, the Masai staff performed for us a Masai Dance in candle light in our dining area ...
    With the stream and the sound of water gushing, the sweet smell of wet grasses in the Air, this felt fantastic !!!

    Warrior Bar: Watch the hyenas, have a drink

    Hyenas feeding in the night
    1 more image

    There was no TV available in my room at the Mara Sopa Lodge. So, to catch the latest sports update (in this case, the World Cup games), a TV is available at the Warrior Bar. You can warm yourself with a nice bottle of Tusker beer or sit by the fire outside.

    At 10pm, they have a feed-the-hyena session on a platform outside. It's quite interesting because you can also spot other noctural animals e.g jackals, mongoose rushing for the meat & bones. However the most daring animal has got to be the hotel cat, because it can go up to the ravaging hyenas, snatch a piece of meat and calmly walk away!!

    Dress Code: Bush style :)

    The lounge at Mara Sopa Lodge: Maasai Dance

    by BorneoGrrl Written Jul 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every Saturday night, the Mara Sopa Lodge has a dance by "Maasai Warriors" around the lounge of the hotel. This is quite entertaining for the hotel guests but the "Maasai" people are actually hotel employees

    Siana Springs Conservation Area: Night Drive

    by grets Written Jan 6, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Night drive

    The main reserve of Masai Mara does not allow driving during the hours of darkness, but Siana Springs Camp is surrounded by its own conservation area. As there are no fences or boundaries around the Mara, the same game as is found in the reserve can be found by the camp.

    We went on a night drive with a driver, armed ranger and a spotter. We saw many nocturnal animals, including the curious spring hare, which looks like a kangaroo when it jumps. Although not as spectacular as a day-time drive, I personally feel that a night drive is worth it for a different perspective on a safari.

    We paid US$40 each directly to the lodge for this drive. There was thre of us, it operates with a minimum of two passengers.

    Dress Code: Wrap up warm as there is quite a chill in the air.

    Siana Springs Camp: Maasai Dancers

    by grets Written Jan 6, 2005

    Maasai dancers

    Some evenings the camp puts on Maasai Dances with people from the local school and village performing for the guests. The Maasai are tall and sinewey people who are agressive but graceful in their dances. Lots of jumping.

    Children are always so much cuter than adults when it comes to such displays, and I loved wathcing the different footwear the kids had.

    The grounds of Siana Springs: Sitting around the camp fire

    by grets Written Jan 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The camp fire

    Every evening a camp fire was lit just outside the restaurant area, which was a great place to sit and chat with fellow guests and share stories from the day's game viewing. Around the fire there were huge logs to sit on.

    Dress Code: Something to keep you warm.

    Under the Kigeria Tree at Siana Springs: New Year's Eve Cocktails

    by grets Written Jan 6, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    David, Florence, Peter, Katherine and Angelique

    When we returned from our game drive in the late afternoon on 31st December, there was an invitation in the tent which read:

    "Jambo Grete & David,

    On behalf of the Management, it is our pleasure to invite you for a complimentary cocktail drink at 7.00 PM under the Kigeria tree to commence the countdown for the year 2005.

    Karibu Sana!!"

    There were veryc nice cocktails containing fruit and vodka, gin and tonic or beer if preferred, plus of course non-alcoholic beverages for the children and the wimps amongst us. Snacks were provided too and a guitarist was playing music for us. It was a very nice atmosphere, and all the staff and management would mingle with guests and chat.

    Dress Code: Most people had changed out of their daily safari gear, but there was no need to dress up as such. Somepeople found it a little chilly and had put on a fleece or jacket. Comfortable shoes was a must - high heals don't go too well on the lawn.
