Tucked into quite thick indigenous riverine forest, Mara Ngenche Safari Camp is situated at the confluence of the Mara and Talek rivers. Historically this was an important place, where the local Maasai community would come to share the loot that they had raided from neighbouring tribes – hence the name Ngenche – meaning ‘to share’ in the Maasai language. The camp has been built to disturb as little of the surrounding bush as possible.

Our view of Ngenche Safari Camp

Ngenche is a small tented camp, but unusually for the Mara, it is not hosted. The staff here are exceptionally friendly and the manager very approachable, but guests have a higher degree of independence than at many of the other places we feature of this size. This, twinned with the old-fashioned style of the rooms, makes it suitable for those who want a bit more autonomy but without having to opt for a large hotel-like property.
