One of the best camps we've ever visited!

Tangulia Mara was a great camp in a very good location. Tented and rustic but nothing wrong with that. Also incredibly welcoming and homely!

The only Maasai owned camp in the Mara - there should be more.

Jackson the Owner/Host/Guide is a one of the most personable people I have ever met on my African travels on so many levels (Guiding experience, company, sense of humour, education, conversation, history etc.). He is also a bit of a celebrity having been a main participant in Big Cat Diaries (BBC TV Show). Now Co-Presenting a similar Show on Animal Planet.

The Game viewing was excellent, caught the Migration (impossible to count the Zebra and Wilderbeasts they were everywhere). Plenty of Lion action and we were privileged to see a full speed Cheetah chase and kill (which only happened because of Jackson's experience in positioning the vehicle and being patient). The chase finished in front of our vehicle. Saw Black Rhino.

We do not often plan on returning to a Safari Camp (as there are so many new ones to experience) but we will definitely be returning to Tangulia, apparently it is open all year round and there is lots of action even without the Migration. We go on Safari every year and so have seen a lot of camps in various countries - this camp is now in our top 3.

Dream Safari at Tangulia Mara

I cannot imagine a better camp for a Masai Mara Safari. Perfectly situated, a small distance from the visible Mara river, exclusive insofar as maximum capacity is 14 guests, lovely—and serious—tents with all the necessary amenities (toilet, bathroom, lights powered by generator) and wonderful deck overlooking the river and the landscape. The camp is not fenced in, and is impeccably run. It is the only 100% Masai owned and run camp in the Mara as far as I know. The food, eaten at a comunal table either outisde on deck or inside the beutifully decorated main cabin, was simple and delicious and copious. Wine is complimentary. I cannot think of one negative. Our eagle-eyed guide, a Masai naturally, became a friend and lead us to all the fauna we could have imagined.

Great safari at Tangulia Mara

This was our first experience of a safari (our first trip to sub-Saharan Africa) so we have nothing to compare it with, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. The camp itself was in a great location, looking over the river, and we liked the scale of it: not too big. Tent was comfortable, food was excellent, and staff always friendly and welcoming.
Our guide Sam was exceptionally knowledgeable - always seemed to know where the next kill was likely to take place! - and as a result we saw almost everything we wanted to - only the rhinos proved elusive. We liked the trip to the school and to the Masai village, but it was the landscape and animals which were most memorable.

Tangulia Mara review

This is my favourite camp in the Masai Mara - the new tents are fabulous and the outlook is glorious. The two Chefs, David and Leonard cook wonderful food; the whole team is friendly and attentive and nothing is too much trouble.

Perfect for what we wanted

Not luxurious but that's not what we were looking for and it had so many plus points. The main camp area was very comfortable and all the staff were attentive and caring. Food, which we might have thought of as a possible problem was excellent throughout our stay. We felt privileged to be in the hands of real Maasai people.
