Excellent safari

Overall really good.

Safari was fantastic. Room service not quite so good - a few minor glitches. The tent itself was lovely but lacked a few amenities such as a proper mirror some brighter lighting when you needed it. Also no hairdryer in the tent - we had to ask for it. Having said that the service out on safari was very good with packed breakfasts and lunches being brought to us. It feels that they worked really hard to deliver a very personal service and large achieved this but just fell short on a few basics.

Food was great as was the company, though. Cameras being provided also very useful.

Expert Africa comments

Mara Plains has responded to this feedback to say they are delighted that overall Mr and Mrs F had an excellent safari with them. On the specific issues, as Mara Plains runs totally on solar power their energy supply does not provide for high wattage appliances. They offer lower wattage hairdryers which work in the tents but they need to show guests how to use them otherwise they tend to trip the power! These hairdryers are kept in the office and offered at the introductory briefing and these travellers asked for one at the beginning.

The camp wasn’t previously aware of a problem with the large mirrors above the wash basins and at the dressing table. But they have now noted this issue, and it is something they will look into in order to improve the rooms. Mr and Mrs F did ask for brighter lighting and an extra lamp was added on the first evening.

Mara Plains Camp review

It's a beautiful camp, and the able managers and staff were eager to meet our needs and provide special treats, like a private campfire and dinner and our family tent.

Our guide, Kevin, was excellent and we enjoyed many sightings in the conservancy and in the Maasai Mara Reserve.
