I personally like the area around Ol Kiombo in the reserve. Mara Intrepids or Mara explorer are great camps. However, there are many camps and lodges in and around the park. If you can, stay in a small tented camp, using their guides and vehicles.

Price depends on when traveling. They're seasonable.

Best will always depend on the traveler.

There are many choices based on your budget.

Is the Mara the only place visiting? For how many days?

Do you plan to book direct or take advantage of discounted contract rates an outfitter can provide, along with your transfers, vehicle/guide and/or flights.

Ashnil Mara is being avoided (boycotted)by many tour operators as it was built under protest on a rhino breeding grounds and is not at all eco-friendly. Lots of concrete, fenced all around besides fences and razor wire attop. It's modern with about 30/tents, but the negatives keep many away.

I would recommend staying at Kicheche Bush Camp, as I stayed there twice and it was superb in every way. It is located in the Olare Orok concession and you will rarely see other vehicles. You can also very easily enter the main park to see a wildebeest crossing or a stampede. You will see plenty of lions, cheetahs, and leopards. Please notice that Kicheche Bush Camp is currently the highest rated camp on tripadvisor. The managers Darren, and Emma are two of the nicest people that you'll meet anywhere.
