“Better than my expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2013 via mobile

We spent 2 nights in december here we were more than happy with the accomodations and the service.
Unfortunately weather was bad during our stay I guess i would like it even more in a sunny day
beds were cobfortable and there were hot water for the showers.
the masai mara is just at 10 minutes by car.
staff was very friendly.
i definitely recommend this tended camp.

I picked Mara Springs/Mountain Rock based on positive reviews in Lonely Planet. It has mid-range pricing with excellent service. Initially I had planned to take only a 3 day safari to Masai Mara while I traveled with my mom, then search out a different company for my wife and I when we met up. My mom and I were so pleased with the accommodations, service, and exceptional guide that I inquired about other trips offered through the same company. My wife and I got royal treatment that made our trip absolutely wonderful. A sampling of the things Patrick (owner) and Joseph (kick-butt driver/guide) provided: Choice accommodation at Rock House in Karen, a ritzy Nairobi suburb very near to the giraffe center, elephant sanctuary, animal orphanage, and Nairobi National park; In town transfers to & from bus stop, airport, and train station; Side trips to local attractions and souvenir shopping at the Masai Market; Advance purchase of train & plane tickets, advance booking at hotels--even ones they aren't affiliated with! Special arrangement to visit the elephant helped adopt; and last but certainly not least, spectacular lodging, food, and game drives in Masai Mara and Samburu/Shaba/Buffalo Springs. I recommend Mountain Rock Kenya (mountainrockkenya.com) without hesitation for everyone from college students who want to backpack on the cheap to elderly couples who want first class resorts. Patrick can hook you up with exactly what you want, and he will greet you personally to make sure you are satisfied. Wonderful! Can't wait to go back.
