KT was really great. The staff reflects other &Beyond properties, doting on you to make sure you’re comfortable and giving excellent service in all ways. I had a luxury tent, which costs about $100/person/night extra, but it was worth it to me to have electricity for charging my electronic gear without having to walk to the camp's charging station. (I toured the standard tents and would have no problem staying in one---they looked very good to me.) The tent was well-furnished, again typical of the great way &Beyond furnishes some other of their lodges. And finding a hot water bottle in bed when returning from dinner was a nice touch. The reception area at KT was really classy looking and comfortable with an area set aside for gift shopping. My tent was #39 and required a bit of a walk but the walk was good for some exercise. From my tent I faced right out to a fence, which no doubt would drive the purists crazy. But beyond the fence were zebra, buffalo, giraffe. For first-time visitors to Africa, the fence might actually feel comforting. The luxury tents are also situated in a fairly dense forest area, and I thought that was actually pretty cool. The food was very good as well, on par with the other camps I stayed at in the Mara.
Game-viewing was very good while I was there. My guide was outstanding in explaining and identifying the animals I saw. Most important to me, the guide did his absolute best to try to satisfy my requests to see particular animals.
Overall, I couldn't see how KT could have done a better job.
