Wonderful Experience In Every Way!

Our family (2 adults, 2 children) enjoyed everything about Karen Blixen Camp. The location on the Mara River is fantastic. We are somewhat picky eaters (two vegetarians and two committed carnivores), but the chef/kitchen accommodated us with aplomb.

Our guide was excellent and extremely knowledgable. We saw an unbelievable assortment of animals and birds, and at least in the Mara North conservancy we were almost always alone or with 1 or 2 other vehicles even when we were with big cats. We also went to the reserve and saw the crossing which was, of course, incredible (and brutal), but the shear number of vehicles jockeying for position was a bit depressing.

The staff at Karen Blixen really went the extra mile to make our stay wonderful and memorable. We celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary (we were married in Kenya) at Karen Blixen and the staff, without our asking, arranged a private dinner with champagne and even baked us a small anniversary cake which was presented by the entire staff with a song. It was beautiful and genuine and meant a lot to us all.

On our last day and after our last game drive (we had an afternoon flight to Nairobi) the staff at Karen Blixen discovered that a black rhino was nearby, which is a very rare occurrence. They promptly rounded up everyone who was in camp for an impromptu game drive to see the rhino, thus ensuring that we were able to see the "big five."
