Accommodation

 
Siana Springs Intrepids
A permanent tented camp 30 minutes from the masai mara with plenty of open space, resident bush buck, mongoose, cute bush baby's and noisy tree hyraxes - take your ear plugs! Our driver was excellent, spending hours finding the animals we wanted to see and full of information - we spent days looking for leopard and finally saw three! We spent four days here which meant we had variety of different game drives including lunch and breakfast in the bush which was rather special. The food was great, but there was far too much of it for us! We'd like to see less plastic bottles used, a water purifier and jugs would be far better. The extras, nature walk and masai village unfortunately were not worth the money as they felt lacklustre and forced. We would still recomend the camp highly.
 
Pinewood Beach Resort and Spa
We spent the first week of our honeymoon at Pinewood Village and they couldn't do enough for us. From sleeping under a tree to watching the monkeys with cocktails in the pool everything was perfect. Do remember to close your balcony doors even if you pop to the bathroom or the monkeys will have your sugars! The beach was lovely and the diving even better. There's a very good dive centre next to the hotel which we couldn't recommend more highly.
