"What a hidden gem this is! Perfect for kids! An incredible spot on the Mara River to enjoy with the family.  Great guide, great food, amazing wildlife - we'll definitely be back"

"We had a wonderful trip, off the beaten track and a chance to experience real life in the Mara. Fantastic and helpful team, Purity's cooking was delicious. We loved the school visit, the hill climb and seeing a leopard as we drove in to the house on our last night, like it had been waiting for us! Can't wait to come again!"

Arthur Milton, USA

"This is UNACCEPTABLE!  There is NOTHING negative to say!!! I mean this place is heaven on earth.  And not only because of the place and location... but mainly thanks to the entire team. We have lived and travelled in Kenya, travelled the world and never have felt so welcome.  Thank you Moses for amazing game drives and walks, you are a great guide, a great driver and a great "runner / player" with Dohan.  You have great knowledge and experience and you know how to share it.

Thank you Purity for amazing meals. Everything (really everything) was delicious!!  We did not expect such food, and we are leaving with one or two extra kilos;)

Thank you Godfrey! You are an amazing host.  Your smile and your kindness made every moment with you a real pleasure. 

Thank you to the rest of the team who made all of this possible.  

As our son said many times "WE ARE SO LUCKY!". So Asante Sana, we will be back!
