Entim, meaning “forest” in Masai, 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. For a few months of the year the Great Migration is right on your doorstep and from the veranda of each tent it is possible to witness the breathtaking sight of thousands of wildebeest crossing the river during their annual trek through this vast wilderness area.
Throughout the year, however, the Masai Mara is home to some of the most abundant wildlife populations in the world. Sightings of the Big 5 on game drives are almost guaranteed, while from camp the horizons are always busy with plains game. There are several prides of lion in the area, and it is even possible to see the more elusive leopard, who have established their territories around the camp.
While many other visitors to the Mara will be staying in camps in the surrounding areas and conservancies, at Entim you don't have to drive for hours to get to the wildlife action because you are right there in the middle of it. There’s actually no obligation to go out on game drives either. Guest can simply sit in camp, put their feet up and watch any variety of animals passing by right in front of you.
The camp employs local Masai driver-guides, trained to a high standard. They have grown up in the area and have an instinctive talent for spotting game and natural ability to read animal spoor, as well as signs of an impending natural event, be it a river crossing or a predator kill.
The 10 guest tents are raised on wooden decks overlooking the Mara River. Handsomely decorated using earthy tones, there’s a seamless flow from inside to outside and down to the river. Watch animals moving to and from the river from your private lounge and veranda, or during scrumptious meals at the open-fronted dining deck. Red-robed Masai warriors escort you to your room after dinner and drinks around the camp fire, where you’ll find a hot water bottle warming the bed, and you go to sleep with the sounds of grunting gnu, hippos, hyenas and lions echoing across the Mara plains.
In addition, the separate Entim Private Wing consists of 8 tents, overlooking a small spring surrounded by trees, and is designed for solo travellers, couples and small groups who desire complete exclusivity. The Private Wing has its own bar, lounge and dining tent.
