Mara West Camp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 October 2017

We had one of the chalets that had it's own balcony overlooking the Maasai Mara. How wonderful to have giraffe and zebra right in your camp! The food and hospitality were exceptional and the rooms unbelievably comfortable. This is not your average "tenting" experience. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Chalets/Cabins are worth the added cost.

Mara West is the perfect combination of tented camp and luxury resort. The location is excellent and the view into the Masai Mara Serengeti is beautiful! I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked out the front of our tent and a zebra was calmly ambling down the sidewalk in front of our tent! The meals prepared by Chef Peter were delicious and the staff warm and attentive. We could not have asked for a better experience!

The Mara West camp was perfect with great food, staff and game viewing on site. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone. Take a couple of hours and visit the school and clinic near by too. You can bring items from home to each of these places if you have room in your suitcases. I left part of my heart there. Would return in a heart beat.

The staff of Mara West exudes incredible customer service from the time that you arrive, until the moment you depart. The food was great, they even catered to my vegan/vegetarian diet. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, I almost did not want to get out of bed each day. The chalets are absolutely perfect, and the view from the balconies are absolutely astonishing. Grace, the housekeeper, happy personality makes you feel happy. John our guide, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. The safaris were amazing, we saw lions up close and personal, we sat there and watched him while he ate a wildebeest for lunch. We were so close that we could hear him crunch on the bones of licking the prey, it was amazing, totally unforgettable. We were able to see the wildebeest migration across the crocodile filled river which was incredible to watch. We saw tons of animals, thanks to our guide John. There were even giraffes just down the road from the camp, we were able to walk down the road and take pictures of them. Mara west, thank you for creating wonderful lifelong memories that my Husband and I will always fondly remember. We are telling everyone that we know to come visit your wonderful camp. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Alicia & James

Room Tip: Pick a chalet, the views are amazing.
