Mara West was awesome and I definitely plan on going back. I can't speak highly enough of the people there, my luggage was lost by the airline company and the people at Mara West went out of there way to handle the issue for me. Once my luggage was found they even had it flown out to me at the camp. While I was without my luggage they made sure I had what I needed to be comfortable. The scenery there is great and the wildlife is abundant. The staff is super friendly and willing to show you around and teach you about their culture. If your looking for a good adventure this is the place to start. I highly recommend Mara West, I'm already planning my next visit.
- side note's -
- it is a bit of a drive from the airport, but that's to be expected. Also the camp is out a good distance in the bush so don't expect some luxury hotel with a/c and all the creature comforts. That being said the camp is beautiful and for where they are located very comfy. (I was pleasantly surprised) I stayed in the low end tents which are still spacious and comfy while being very clean and well maintained.
