The camp accommodates 21 persons in single, double, and triple accommodation.
Each of these accommodation options suit to different traveler’s needs but the high standards of service are maintained throughout the camp no matter what option you choose. The friendly receptionists are available and can deal with any of your inquiries and questions and furnish you with all the up to date information on various tour activities in Masai Mara as well as bookings, no matter what activity you are looking at doing from game drives, balloon safaris, walking, trekking, and cultural visits.
Lenchada Tourist Camp has en-suite bath rooms with hot and cold water, western toilet, changing rooms, and lockers for valuables. The tent canvas wall front can be opened completely to allow an open view from the sleeping and bathroom areas.
Depart from Nairobi towards Maasai Mara Reserve via the Great Valley Viewpoint where you will have a stop over for sightseeing (weather permitting). Arrive in the tented camp in time for lunch and later enjoy a game drive in this land of breath taking where everything is big. Hunt for the Big Five as well as the plain game such as the gnus that are abundant.
Enjoy a full day game viewing in the rolling grass of Mara with endless plains where more than two million wild beast gnu's are migrating from Serengeti in Tanzania with their calves. Visit the banks of Mara river to try and spot the hippos. You will have an optional visit to a Maasai village to learn their unchanged culture.
Have a morning drive to try and search for what you have not sported before returning to the camp for lunch and checkouts. Say 'kwaheri', a Swahili word for good-bye to the pastoral Maasai as you depart for Nairobi to catch a flight at the airport on your way back home.
This safari will take place in Masai Mara, Kenya. The Masai Mara National Reserve lies in the Great Rift Valley in Kenya, on the border to Tanzania and the Serengeti National Park. The Masai Mara is one of the most well known and most popular reserves in the whole of Africa.
This is also partly because of the tall red-robed Masai people whose lifestyle has changed little over the centuries and jointly with the government own the Masai Mara which is its reasoning for being a reserve rather than a national park.
As with most game parks in East Africa, there is no border fencing which gives animals the liberty to move outside the park into huge areas known as 'dispersal areas'. There can be as much wildlife roaming outside the park as inside. Many Masai villages are located in the 'dispersal areas' and they have, over centuries, developed a synergetic relationship with the wildlife.
You will be served daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner and bottled water during the safari.
Please book your flight to arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO). Transfer from and to the airport is included. Gracepatt Ecotours Kenya will pick you up from the airport.
