Entim Camp was an absolute joy. The best location in the Masai Mara and the friendly staff made us feel the most welcome that I've ever experienced anywhere I've stayed. You really felt like you were being looked after in a way rarely seen today - nothing was too much trouble, though everything was taken care of without even our bidding.
Discreetly located overlooking the Mara river - at a key migration crossing point - the well-appointed tents are a beguiling taste of old world safari luxury, except with excellent bathroom facilities! The food and service were uniformly excellent - how mpishi conjured goat milk ice cream in the middle of the Mara is beyond me - and we slipped into bed well sated before going to sleep with the sounds of the African night just outside - hyenas laughing, hippos snuffling and grunting, the rumble of hooves (though safe in the knowledge that our friendly Masai guards kept watch nearby). I've been to many game parks across Africa, but our driver for the game drives, Sammy, was the most knowledgeable I've met, as well as being great company and good fun, with a wicked sense of humour - like when the engine cut out as we were surrounded by lions on our own in the middle of the great grassy plains. I'd like to say a huge "thank you" to the staff at Entim for a most wonderful stay and i hope to be back some time soon.
