My friend had suggested this place to my wife and I for a weekend trip and man, was it excellent,
Driving from Nairobi is an adventure to say the least. The roads begin to get rough about 50km from the camp but as you get closer you drive through herds of wildebeest and zebra and the landscape is postcard material.
The camp is beautiful, well designed and very well maintained. The luxury tents are perfect for a restful adventure with comfortable beds and lovely breeze. Showers deserve special mention for overlooking the Mara River.
Staff were very friendly and courteous and service was very good and cooperative.
The food menu was diverse and satisfying. Drinks were also refreshing and evening bar specials also deserve special mention. Lunch was served outside in the lawns overlooking the Mara River full of hippos.
We saw tonnes of animals during the game drives and it really helped that the vehicles are allowed to go off the paths. David, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and fun. But despite all our searching we never saw the elusive leopard.
Rest assured, we need to find a leopard, and we're coming back to Rianta to find one!
