We stayed at Neptune Mara Rianta for 3 nights during our recent safari. I think when you cry when you leave a place that it's a good indication of the quality of the experience. It is a little effort to reach the camp from the main road but it is so worth it! The location on a Mara river bend full of hippos is amazing and unsurpassed. The tents are extremely spacious and have a wonderful large shower. The staff are amazing. Ezra, our waiter, took extremely good care of us and made us feel very special. I was very sad to say goodbye to all of them! I sincerely hope to visit again.

The flight from Nairobi Wilson Airport was a quick one hour and suddenly we were in paradise. The land cruiser and our guide Ben were waiting for us at the airstrip- he had a cooler full of drinks if we needed. We did a short safari on our way to the camp and it was obvious he was extremely knowledgeable and had a good eye for spotting game. We were welcomed at the camp with a refreshing juice and introduced to the staff including our personal butler!! All the tents are located with a river view which is full of hippos. They were happily wallowing in the water and making hippo noises. The bird life right at the camp was incredible, so much variety. There is a pool which is refreshing after being in the sun. The tents were gorgeous with amazing views- the shower had an open view of the river too! The showers were hot and the pressure was good. I couldn’t believe they even had WiFi there in the main areas! The food was another story all together- talk about 5 star meals in the bush! There were always four choices of a main meal and it was a 5 course meal for both lunch and dinner- absolutely incredible. The game drives, we did two a day, morning and evening were amazing. Just the sunrises were worth the entire trip. The sound of silence when the car is switched off and your just sitting out there watching a herd of elephants is indescribable- truly an experience of a lifetime. If you get an opportunity to go to Neptune Mara Rianta, you must take it!!

From the minute we arrived we were welcomed. We were introduced to staff and shown to our tented lodgings. Little did we know how perfect our accommodations would be and how wonderful it is to be awakened and serenaded by hippos in the river a mere 25 yards away. The four course meals were fantastic and the wake up coffee was presented at just the right time to fuel our days. The lunches made for us on our safari’s were top notch Do not miss this Camp. If you get the opportunity to visit consider yourselves fortunate.

A wonderfully personal, attentive, and considered experience. We will not hesitate to come back. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. From the game drives to the cuisine, every element is expertly executed. The food outdid our expectations. The camp sits in an amazing location in the conservancy, with scores of hippos visible from your luxury tent.

We ended our safari here at Neptune Rianta after flying into Arusha, Tanzania, and staying 2 nights at various Lemala tent camps up to the northern Serengeti. It was the only camp that was fenced. Hippos can be aggressive, and there are leopards here too so fencing is a necessity. Although there are no animals wandering around the camp as in other camps (except for the Mongoose during the day and Dik-Diks at night), we were more than happy to experience camping with the hippos! It was the reason for selecting this camp (along with the luxury accomodations) and we were not disappointed. Our tent was at the end of camp and the perfect viewing of one hippo family. It was great to watch other hippos sneaking over and causing a raucous! Such organize chaos with these creatures and the night-time drama was so entertaining. Our family didn't want to leave. Our dining experience was superb - props to Ezra, who made us feel so special and really was the consummate professional. He went out of his way to accommodate our wishes, thank you! The cuisine was exquisite and beautiful. Plating was perfect. I especially liked the Tilapia and soups. The spa was great thanks to Grace and Rose who gave amazing deep-tissue massages, wow! You can look at the photos and understand why one feels so spoiled here. The tents are very high-end as are the camp furnishings. The gift shop was very nice also. Neptune Rianta would be a great place to stay for a vacation - we used it at the end of our safari, but I could definitely see us coming back for a week-long stay. A+ to the chef and staff.
