Sentinel Mara Camp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Sentinel Camp in the Mara was a once in alive time experience for our family! We were treated to probably some of the best game viewing in the world as well as an incredible time in the Sentinel camp itself. We loved the mix of luxury accommodation and camping, and found the whole experience one which we will never forget. Lying in bed at night and hearing the sound of hippos just a few meters below us in the river, or enjoying the five star cuisine at every meal and savouring the spectacular views from our luxury tented camps on the banks of the river…But what stands out most was the warmth, hospitality and excellence of the staff itself. They were remarkable and definitely made the trip out of this world! Thank you! HIGHLY recommend!

We were fortunate to have 4 glorious nights in this outstanding Eco Sensitive Sentinel Mara Camp.The accommodation is in beautifully appointed luxury tents in a forested area on the Mara River.The delightful camp staff were on hand to meet our every need and certainly made our stay comfortable and so memorable.The meals were abundant, delicious and all served in a beautiful dining tent so tastefully decorated . So much thought has been put into every aspect of this camp. We enjoyed and valued every drive under the keen eye of a very experienced and knowledgeable ranger.All in all an outstanding experience.Highly recommended...

From the very first greeting to our final farewell- every detail of this African experience is taken into consideration by an exceptional and friendly staff.
The views, the comfort, the food and all the little touches... continued to blow us away throughout our stay. Attention to the simple but important details ensured an authentic, bucket list experience for our whole family. We spent most of our days picking our jaws up off the floor!!! - we could not recommend this camp highly enough.
The 'creature comforts' that the Sentinel has in abundance, actually made going home quite hard.
a superb experience ... 10/10

If you want to enjoy an experience right out of Out of Africa, this is the safari for you. They call it a camp, but it is not like any camping I have ever done! Yes, we lived in tents, but we had a wonderfully comfy bed and our room had a flushing toilet and a shower.
The staff was as attentive as any high end hotel and the meals were worthy of the label of gourmet.
Then there were the game drives. We saw so many animals it took our breath away. The spotters and guide made sure we saw as many different animals and situations as possible.
I came home with so many great pictures, it was difficult to decide which to print.
Thank you Sentinel for a wonderful experience!

Sentintel Mara Camp went above and beyond to provide an amazing experience for our group: 18 high school students, aged 15-18. Not only were they friendly, attentive, and professional, the guides, staff, and directors ensured that this trip was as informative and educational as it was breathtaking and beautiful. Their knowledge, care and concern for the Mara's wildlife, environment, and people made this a truly powerful experience for everyone. If you are looking for a safari adventure for any size group or ages, I would highly recommend Sentinel!

I could not speak more highly of the entire Sentinel Mara camp team. The service was second to none and the food was amazing. Our tents sat right on the Mara river where we were serenaded day and night by the hippos. Our guide went out of his way to make sure we say as many animals as possible. If you go on safari, Sentinel Mara camp is a must. Mark Pickerill
