Entim Mara Camp

Masai Mara Amboseli & the South

Rating: Mid-range    

Entim Mara Camp overview

Entim, meaning 'forest' in Maasai, is hidden away in the riverine woodlands running along the Mara River in the Mara Game Reserve. There are only 10 tented rooms giving the camp a wonderfully quiet and intimate feeling.

Each tent is tastefully furnished, with chunky wooden bedsteads and storage chests. They are traditional canvas walk-in tents with guze windows admitting natural light. All tents face the river and have a small veranda where you can relax and enjoy the view, and watch wildlife by the river. Each one has an en-suite bathroom with a flush toilet, twin hand basins and a hot shower.

The camp has a pleasant, open-fronted lounge tent with ample seating and a small library. The dining tent is also open allowing you to ejoy meals while watching the animals heading to the river to drink. The bar is located here, and meals can be complimented by the drink of your choice. The deck to the front has canvas awnings that provide welcome shade during the day, where you can rest between game drives.

The camp is designed to give guests the feel that it is part of the landscape, combined with hints of luxury. Staying at Entim Mara is all about being right in the hub of one of the most famous wildlife reserves in the world.


Open: Entim Mara Camp is open all year.

Location: The lodge is in the Masai Mara Game Reserve, near the Mara River and a short drive from the confluence of the Mara and Talek Rivers. The nearest airstrip is Ol Kiombo, a 25-minute drive away.

Rooms: There are 10 tents, space well apart and facing the Mara River. All are en-suite with hot water showers and flush toilets. The tents have gauze windows and wooden furniture. Maasai watchmen (askaris) escort you between your tent and the main area after dark, to ensure safety.

Activities: Game drives in sturdy 4x4 vehicles are the main focus. These vary in duration and include refreshments. Longer drives may include a picnic lunch. During the annual wildebeest migration, usually from July to October, the game passes close by and can often be seen from the camp. Your driver-guide plans the game viewing each day, based on wildlife sightings and local conditions. Sundowners are served in a variety of locations near the camp and at the top of a nearby hill. Visits to a Maasai homestead can be arranged. Entim Mara offers specialist photographic safaris and workshops, offered subject to availability.

Facilities: The lounge contains a small library of reference books, and plenty of seating. It is decorated with wildlife paintings. The dining area and bar is an open-fronted tent overlooking the river. There is a deck to the front with comfy chairs and canvas canopies providing shade.

Dining: Meals are served in the shaded dining area, usually at individual tables. Private dining on your veranda can be arranged. All meals, soft drinks, bottled water, beer, house wines and non-luxury spirits are included in your stay.

Children: Children aged 8 years and over are welcome.

Health: This is a malarial area.

Communication: There free Wi-Fi internet access.

Amanda Marks, Tribes

"This is a small, 10-tent camp on the Mara River in the middle of the Mara Reserve. What a great position. Apparently, the section of river they overlook is often used by the wildebeest as a crossing point – what a selling point to have a ‘private’ view of a crossing point.  Entim is not top luxury, but it’s very comfortable, the vehicles are very good, and the guides have a very good reputation. They also have a neighbouring camp which is specifically for photography groups, so the guides are very clued in to the photography needs of their clients. "

Tracy Edwards, Tribes
"Another one of my favourite camps in the Mara. It’s not super luxury and doesn’t have 24 hour electricity but offers a rustic bush experience with a home-from-home feeling and is in a fantastic location right on the Mara River. The camp’s staff members were amazing and the location is fantastic. I would happily come back to this camp."
