Entim Camp Mara
Entim Camp was designed with a purpose in mind; to be in the best possible location to view the wildebeest migration in the Maasai Mara game reserve. For a few months of the year, the migration is on our doorstep on the Mara River.
While many other visitors to the Mara will be staying in camps in the surrounding areas and conservancies, at Entim Mara Tented Camp you don’t have to drive for hours to get to the wildlife action because you are right there in the middle of it. Nor do you have to be hurried out of the Reserve before gates close at 6.30 pm: at Entim you can continue to witness the wild’s most important and dramatic events, which often take place at dusk and dawn. There’s actually no obligation to go out on game drives because you can sit in camp and watch the animals passing by right in front of you.
Entim meaning “forest” in Maasai is discreetly tucked on the edge of the riverine woodlands. From the shaded seclusion of this attractively-designed camp, guests can relax in luxury and admire unforgettable views over the Mara River and across expansive plains, with the distant backdrops of undulating escarpments and volcanically-sculpted hills. From the veranda of each tent, it is even possible to witness the breathtaking sight of thousands of Wildebeest crossing the river during their annual migration through this vast wilderness area. Entim Camp is an eco-friendly and small, with only ten, tastefully but differently furnished, well-equipped tents. The decor aims to enhance the surrounding environment.
Entim Luxury Camp is hidden in the lush wilderness of Kenya’s legendary Maasai Mara Game Reserve, overlooking the plains and the Mara River right in the heart of the migration area – one of the Seven Wonders of the World – only 10 minutes away from the main Wildebeest Mara river crossings during the migration.
