Singita Mara River Tented Camp review

We loved the remote location of this camp where we enjoyed exciting game drives and witnessed three river crossings.

The accommodation was very comfortable with all of the amenities (barring a TV!) of a luxury hotel room.

Singita Mara River Tented Camp review

This is a new camp located along the Mara river. The reason we went there was to see the great herds on the pains and witness a water crossing. We did see the herds and the experience was great. the river crossings were a bit elusive. We felt the guides were inexperienced and uncoordinated in their approach to maximize the chances of actually seeing a crossing. Accordingly, we missed several opportunities to view a crossing. This was very frustration and certainly negatively effected our experience at the camp.

We also felt the staff was trying hard but were also also inexperienced. This was not what we expected form a Singita Camp.

We also witnessed evidence of poaching close to this site. It was very disturbing. Singita need to be more proactive to try to reduce this type of illegal behavior as they have in their other locations. We did not get any indication that Singita had theses anti-poaching programs in place at the Mara River Camp. Food was usually served cold and not up to usual standards. We would rate the overall value as fair.
