Entim Mara Camp Kenya

3 Days

Camp Fire at Entim Mara Kenya

The Entim Mara Camp Kenya was created to offer a warm, intimate, luxurious safari experience in the Masai Mara. Entim Camp is located along the Mara River, making it ideal for observing and capturing animals throughout the year.

During July – October, tourists in Kenya will witness the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth. Tourists at the Entim Mara will witness over a million wildebeest, zebras, and antelopes roaming the African savanna. These animals are in search of water and pasture.

What is it Like to Stay at Entim Mara Camp Kenya?

You need to know that Entim Mara Camp Kenya is 10 minutes away from one of the main wildebeest crossings in the Maasai Mara.

Why does this matter?

For starters, during the peak season, it becomes a hassle for luxury tourists in Kenya to get vintage points of the crossing. This is because hundreds of other tourists compete for the perfect viewing spot.

However, if you stay at the Entim Mara, you will always be 10 minutes faster and closer. Also, the camp has vantage viewing points, meaning if you have a  pair of binoculars, you can witness the spectacle without competing with other tourists in Kenya.

Accommodation at Entim Mara

Entim Camp Mara boasts  12 new luxury en-suite guest rooms on wooden decks with excellent views of the Mara River. The rooms are elegantly decorated in earthy tones. Luxury tourists at the Mara can observe animals coming and going to the river from their private lounge and veranda. You can enjoy this view while eating an international meal and drinking luxurious wine at your dining deck.

The communal areas at Entim Camp consist of a lounge tent and a guest tent, conveniently located near a fire pit. Both tents have open fronts, allowing guests to enjoy the breathtaking views of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The lounge tent has luxurious items such as large leather sofas, armchairs, sturdy coffee tables, storage chests, and wildlife artwork. This creates an authentic safari atmosphere.

The color scheme is earthy and neutral. The tents have uniquely patterned cushions that charm the atmosphere, while warm lamplights set a cozy ambiance when it is nighttime.

In addition, the lounge tent features a small library, making it a perfect place for unwinding while reading a book in the Mara. The dining tent mirrors this elegance with separate well-set tables, a small bar, and a director’s chair for comfort. Lastly, a fire pit, located just a short distance from both tents, is a popular spot for having morning tea/coffee and evening gatherings.

Food and Drinks at Entim Camp

The meals at Entim Mara Camp consist of delightful gourmet food prepared by an international chef. The camp prepares meals for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

When at the Entim camp make sure to request a bush breakfast.

A bush breakfast is a unique dining experience that involves having breakfast outdoors, usually in a scenic spot within the bush or savannah, surrounded by the natural beauty and wildlife of the area.

Key features of a bush breakfast typically include:

  1. Location: Bush breakfasts are usually set up in a picturesque location, such as under a tree with a panoramic view of the landscape, by a riverbank, or overlooking a watering hole where animals gather.
  2. Setting: Tables, chairs, and sometimes blankets or picnic mats are set up in the outdoor area to create a comfortable dining space for guests.
  3. Cuisine: The menu often includes continental and local dishes, such as fresh fruits, pastries, cereals, eggs cooked to order, grilled meats, and traditional African delicacies. Beverages like coffee, tea, juices, and sparkling wine may also be served.
  4. Atmosphere: The ambiance is casual and relaxed, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of the wilderness. It’s common to hear birds chirping, animals grazing nearby or leaves rustling in the breeze.
  5. Experience: Dining in the bush at Entim Camp Kenya allows guests to connect with nature on a deeper level and enjoy a memorable meal surrounded by wildlife and stunning scenery. It’s often combined with morning game drives or bush walks, adding to the safari experience.

Safari Activities Offered at Camp Entim in Kenya

One unique safari activity offered at Camp Entim Kenya is a Hot Air Ballon Safari.

Hot Air Ballon Safari

If you are wondering what a Hot air balloon safari feels like, let us explain. Imagine waking up at dawn to the sky of the African savanna full of hues of rose and gold.  After a short drive to the open savanna, you see this big deflated balloon with vibrant colors.

The fiery breath of propane burners then inflates this big balloon, and it swells with life. It begins to billow and dance with each gust of wind. The balloon begins to awaken like a creature from a long sleep. It stretches upwards and begins to rise, yearning to reach the heavens.

At this point, tourists on the ground hop into the weathered basket, waiting for a safari like no other. With a gentle hiss of released gas, the balloon lifts off the ground, defying gravity. As it rises, you will see Entim Camp from a distance, but your mind will not be interested in the Camp.

The mind will be interested in the millions of wildebeest below. As the sun climbs higher in the sky, casting its golden rays upon the earth below, the balloon floats serenely onward, a beacon of freedom and adventure in a world filled with endless possibilities.

And for those lucky enough to ride its gentle currents, the experience is nothing short of magical—a fleeting glimpse of the world as seen from the heavens above.
