I was at Aruba at the end of August with my 6 years old daughter. I spent there 7 days and was just fantastic. The staff was very kind to me and to my daughter. The camp is very well positioned, very close to the gate and above all in a great area of the mara to start the game d

Hello I have just returned from a fantastic 3 nights in a comfort tent at Aruba Mara. I am trying not to gush as they were so helpful. It is fantastic value, the tent was as described on their website and the rate included two game drives a day and three large meals a day, includ

A nice camp with dedicated management (German). Excellent food, very nice big tents. We can fully recommend this place as it offers excellent value for money. If you arrive with your own car you need to pass through the Mara most likely, hence, entrance fees are required. In that

Hello. Please could you advise how far the camp is from the Mara river and, in particular, the distance to the most common area where the migration crosses?
How are the roads to the mara?my husband has had a spine operation and would like to know if we can drive down on the roads. Is the migration still on and till when? booking for 22ndAug - 24th checkout.what are your chargers for 2adults 1child 14years old.kindly give me details asap.thankyou
Haloo, how much are your charges per night for a couple? thank you
"the comfort tent was good for me, the luxury tents do have a really nice outside bath so would go for that if i was with more people."
"Stay away from the tents near the Car Park! You will hear the Generator and cars going for early drives as early as 5am!"
"A good place for relaxation, honeymoon and adventuring."
"Choose room depending on your budget as all the rooms are facing the river."
"I walked past the tents and they all had great views of the river. I suppose being near to the restaurant and outside seating area for breakfast and lunch was great but perhaps a little nosier in peak season?"
