We had a spectacular safari in Masai Mara. My partner had been on a Safari in Masai Mara more than once in the last two decades, but the Safari with Entim was by far the best.
What distinguishes the Camp Entim from most other Safari groups are the location of the camp (inside the Masai Mara), the staffs (excellent service, friendly and knowledgeable), Masai guides (authentic and skillful), itinerary (ample time for game drives), the campsite settings and amenities (hot shower 24/7, warm water bottle, solar powered lightings, great view of the Mara river).
The word "Entim" means bush in the Masai Language. To get to the campsite, we had to drive through thick bushes in the middle of Masai Mara. The reality of staying in a tent just a few hundred meters away from the (great migration) crossing points of the Mara river makes the experiences of our Safari exceptional.
The menu was excellent and every meal was unique. We had our first dinner underneath starry skies in the bush by the Mara river (guarded by armed Masai) on the campsite and a picnic breakfast in the bush somewhere out there on the game drive.
Some useful tips:
We booked the Entim Camp Safari through a travel agent in Nairobi. We later discovered that the we could have saved some money by booking directly with the Entim. Anyway, despite the costs, it was well worth it. Our Masai guide, Henry, in his traditional Masai outfit and ornaments, is very knowledgeable and charismatic. We wouldn't have seen so many animals including the leopard if it wasn't for him.
We are considering coming back to Entim Camp during the great migration (June - October) in the near future.
Well done Camp Entim! Thank you from: Karen and Eric.
