Entumoto Safari Camp (Siana
Conservancy / Masai
Entumoto Private Safari Camp stands elevated in the hills
of the Megwarra escarpment, commanding breathtaking views
and sunsets over the Mara plains. We are part of the Siana
conservancy, on the border of the Masai Mara reserve,
between the park gates Oloolaimutia and Sekenani. Entumoto
is an intimate, exclusive tented camp, designed to provide
for your total comfort and the incredible sensation of being
a part of this great African wilderness – the open sky, the
sounds and smells of the bush and its wildlife – in high
security, day and night, provided by Maasai warriors,
Askaris and armed rangers.
The excitement of being in the heart of Africa. No fences
and open to the far horizons – isolated space! The sheer
beauty of the experience, waking up in the early African
morning, the sound of the birds calling, dew sparkling on
the grass and the typical smell of wood smoke on the air
cleanses your very soul. After the often spectacular sunset,
night falls and the sky, free from light pollution, shines
with the starlight of millions of visible stars and the
Milky Way. You will experience this in a way you’ll never
The tents, made of a multilayered canvas, are custom
designed and set a hundred meters apart from each other for
your privacy. We offer 4 family tented suites, comprising
two double or twin rooms, each with en-suite bathrooms and a
central lounge with fireplace, comfortably furnished
including two divans which could double as beds – in all,
ideal for a family, although four adults and four children
could be comfortably accommodated. We also offer 5 double or
twin tents, bathroom en-suite, perfect for couples.
Each tent has its own wide verandah on which, for
instance, you can enjoy your early morning cup of tea or
coffee , your relaxing afternoon upon the daybeds or your
evening sundowners. Children are welcome. Trained rangers
enjoy showing them the bush. Four out of the nine rooms are
family rooms, plus they have the rare pleasure of a swimming
pool to keep themselves entertained. Our minimum age policy
for children is 7 years. Children over 12 years old are
Breakfast consists of a full range of fruits and cereals.
You may then order a cooked English breakfast of your
choosing either in camp or out under a lone thorn-tree on
the savanna plains.
Lunch a light affair – perfect for the heat of the
Pre-dinner drinks by the open fireplace in front of
the dining room allows us all to share the adventures of the
Dinner is served at your convenience and is a
delicious, varied 4 course meal.
We take pride in growing
many of our own fruits and vegetables as we are organically

Most of the time Entumoto is powered by solar batteries
and we have a backup generator just in case there isn’t
enough sun to charge the batteries. The water is heated
using a combination of solar heating and wood burning stoves
using waste paper briquettes, thus keeping our pollution
levels to an absolute minimum. We have dedicated satellite
broadband which allows us to offer you free WIFI in the
lounge and the Safaricom signal in the camp is good for
mobile phones. Our swimming pool is sometimes a welcome cool
off from the midday sun or a place to simply relax while
enjoying a snack and drinks.
A large tent shades our lounge and bar area and our
library offers some interesting reading. Those with an
interest for cooking are welcome to join our kitchen and
garden staff to select and pick vegetables in our organic
vegetable garden. Our small and secluded setting allows us to
offer exclusive use of the entire camp to groups that desire
complete privacy. For instance special thematic weeks will
be arranged for holistic Yoga retreats, artists, creative
writing and the like.
Activities / Wildlife:
Sharing the experience of being so close to this
wilderness and it’s abundance of wildlife is what it is all
about for us. The Masai Mara boasts the most concentrated
number of big cats in the world. You will be spotting zebra,
antelopes, buffalo, elephant, giraffe and much much more
with the guidance of our highly skilled professional guides.
“Safari” meaning journey is exactly what you can expect.
A journey of discovery and knowledge that brings you
intimately in touch with the fine balance between life and
death. This living and breathing savannah will capture your
every sense. Close encounters with the wild game are a given
here enjoyed from the safety of our custom built, open, game
Bush breakfast, half day, lunch on the plain, full day –
all is possible. We also do exhilarating night game drives.
Walking safaris in the surrounding hills are very popular
with stunning views, under the close supervision of our
guides and Askaris. This is the best way to get really close
to the nature and offers very much in return for the brave.
With the vast knowledge of the bush that the Maasai possess
– this is a chance to learn how they use nature to their
benefit. Plants that are used for curing ailments, roots
that are used for water and trees that are used for many
other things. Here you can learn about tracking animal spoor
and also viewing the smaller, shyer creatures that we so
often miss when sitting in a vehicle.
Entumoto is partly-owned and the land leased from local
Maasai families. We can thereby offer unchallenged insights
and genuine cultural experiences of the Maasai. Visits to a
local Maasai manyatta or homestead kraal can be arranged.
