This was the best stay in Kenya we had during our trip.
We had a tent near the river, very closed from all the rest. (tent 3 if anyone would like to reserve :) )
The employees are friendly and helpful. (standing outside at ALL times of the day and night to guide you to any point you need to go -> we had an early morning safari and they were there to light us to our vehicle)
The tents are more like houses and are very luxury.
The food was great and was prepared with great care.
The safari's can start from the back of the camp, so you're just a sigh away from the wildlife.
There might be some noises from dogs, but hey ... you're in the wild, it might as well be wild dogs :) (to be sure of a good sleep I suggest ear plugs if you're a light sleeper)
We would surely advice this camp as a starting point of your safari in Masai Mara.
