I took a flying package from Nairobi to Mara.The driver was waiting for me at the air strip...From then on though i was solo, everything was a breeze.
The game drives, the food all so amazing! My tent was no ordinary tent...it had the most comfortable bed and all the amenities with an outdoor style shower.
Was much spoilt and it was the best safari ever...the drivers and guides are so knowledgeable...managed to see an array of wildlife including the pride of lions so close up!
Highly recommend staying here.

Only positives here: we had a superb time at Karen Blixen camp. The North Conservancy is a truly amazing conservation project, so successful that it is probably more replete with animals now than the national park (which you can also visit and should!). It is a great feeling just to be contributing to that.The service was great. The staff all know your names and pay great attention to making you feel special and cared for. There are lots of "surprises" which I should not detail here, which we thoroughly enjoyed, unforgettable evenings in the wilderness. The guides were first rate; we used two guides (mainly David) who managed to find even Leopard, and countless Lions, a serval, a cheetah, as well as "all the other stuff" that people tend eventually to see on safari. The rooms are luxury tents with electrics etc ("glamping"). It can be noisy at night time with the animals, and that may take getting used to for some compared to using a more hotel type accommodation, but we really enjoyed the more outdoor feel. There were lots of activities for our son to do, making beads, swimming and kiddy archery for example in addition to the wildlife spotting. Food was highly personalized - each group gets a dedicated waiter who gets to know their preferences.Overall amazing; if you can go, don't miss it! Only comment is that the pool looks like it could use a better filter system.

It was fifth time we stayed in the camp. Only a pity we had to change place because of refurbishment. As always the atmosphere is great. Strongly influenced by Danish "hygge". Can be other camps have a bit more luxury ambience but this is fully compensated by great staff who offer good and friendly service.
We had the best week att Karen Blixen camp. We Are a family with two kids 9 & 11 years old. The staff get to know the kids real Quick and find activitiets the liked like brading and campwalks. Exellent driver and guide who had big knowledge and fokused at the same things as we! Saw a LOT of animals!! Thank's for having us!

Great location on the Mara River with a seemingly permanent herd of hippos on the opposite bank - picteresque with permant tent luxury accommodation with outside bathrooms Food and service was top class. The daily safaris were the highlight - this is the place to see animals - a herd of 30+ giraffe crossing the river, 200+ zebras as well as lions and elephants up close - fantastic - could not be faulted in any way
