This place is magical: incredible location near the Mara River. Sleeping in luxury tents was just an "out of words" experience. It is a small camp (only 7 or 8 tents), but very magical. The Masai staff were just very nice, friendly and atentious. Highly recommend this experience. We spent two nights and the first nights it was only us,... More

Situated by the Mara River, Enkerende tented camp is a small campsite that immersed campers with authentic Massai culture. The facilities were great, with clean bathroom and cozy common area. The food is surprisingly good with a mix of African and international cuisine. The staff is a group of 15 Massai people with a Spanish owner as their "papa". They... More

To be honest, at first we didn't want to come to this place because it was a bit more expensive than other options that we had, but Tabia Safaris, the Tour Operator that organized the safari for us, recommended us the upgrade to this hotel and they said to be sure that we would love the camp. We are very... More

We were the only couple staying at the time, was a really special two night stay in an amazing part of the world. Christina's David did a great job of accommodating us (even with some really early starts), and the Masai staff were super! Very highly recommended ! Thanks very much!

We visited Enkerende back in February and it was fantastic. The food was great all the time, and most importantly Raul treat's his guests excellently. Despite only two groups at the time (low season) he had a nice Kenyan nyama choma and great atmosphere. Location is amazing on the river with hippos nearby. As other folks have said, definitely go...

The surroundings are perfect, with plenty of animals to see nearby. During the night you can hear lions and hippos, plus the flowing... More
