“A Wonderful, Memorable Experience”
Reviewed 12 September 2011
We had a wonderful time at Mara Timbo and the service was exceptional. The staff (Gideon, Felictas, all the security men and our guide Charles) went out of their way to ensure we have a memorable and enjoyable experience. The camp itself was very beautiful and we had a bathtub outside our room . I will certainly go back to Mara Timbo and also suggest it to people I know.

We spent 3 days at Mara Timbo as part of our honeymoon and the staff couldn’t do enough for us! The tent is amazing, probably the most comfortable beds in whole of Africa! Everyday they lay flowers and in the evening they even put a hot water bottle to keep the bed warm for you. I can’t fault the service, it was really great, on our last night they even baked a congratulations cake and sang typical Kenyan songs for us!
The camp is about 35/40 mins from the Olololo gate and yes do be prepared for a rough drive but it’s all part of the fun and we never minded it infact we took some lovely pictures of the landscape and saw a lot of animals on the way.
Gideon our guide was a really nice guy, trying his best to make us see as many animals as possible, make sure you ask for him as I truly believe he’s the best guide at Mara Timbo. August is a great time to go to Masai Mara if you are looking to see the migration, however is a little harder to see Cheetahs and leopards as the grass is really high and makes it difficult to spot them so on this occasion we didn’t see any…
If romance, a bit of luxury, good company and a bit of adventure are your thing then head to Mara Timbo, you won’t regret it!
