The camp is set very close to the Masai Mara gate entrance. We chose to stay here rather than the lodges inside the park to get back to nature a bit and also as the lodges are a lot more expensive.
The tents though basic had a very comfortable bed and a 'bathroom' which was adequate for a 3 day stay though in tent no. 6 we only had hot, even warm water, once so it was a quick shower and hair wash every night after a dusty tiring day in the game reserve.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating and were happy to provide veggie sandwiches for the packed lunch. Breakfast and dinner were slightly repetitive but the food was good, hot and tasty.
The restricted hours for the power to be on meant a frantic time to charge the camera batteries every evening but it was done successfully!
I really enjoyed staying here for its originality and lovely setting.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The camp comprises 23 luxurious en-suite tents. Each tent has a private bathroom and water is heated by charcoal boiler . Camp facilities include a restaurant , a bar and a lounge. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the restaurant but one can also choose to enjoy a romantic bush dinner served beneath the starlit African night. Bush breakfast is the perfect surprise after an exciting morning game drive with astonishing view over the Mara plains. We at Mara Sidai are passionate about cooking and our chefs have put together a tantalizing assortment of their own original recipes that capture the taste of long gone colonial days from French, English, Italian and Danish classical cooking. Our menu also includes food from the international cuisines or best of all, exotic traditional Kenyan meals are also served. ... more less
