THE CAMP TO WITNESS THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH
Entim is designed to give you the friendliest, most intimate, luxury safari camp experience and the best wildlife safari in the Masai Mara. Our prime location along the Mara River is unrivalled for seeing and photographing animals all year around, but particularly to observe the greatest wildlife show on earth; over a million wildebeest, zebra and antelopes migrating from the Serengeti into the Masai Mara (July-October).
“Entim Camp location is amazing - we witnessed a migration crossing right outside our tent!” Trip Advisor Review
You may not realise how rare it is to witness a migration river crossing, because the wildebeest can hesitate on the riverbank for days before taking the leap! But since Entim’s main wing overlooks the Mara River, while the private wing has an intimate bush setting, we see migration crossings from within camp. Entim guests are usually first on the scene, up close to all the action and other top animal sightings as and when they happen, without other tourist traffic around. We don't have rush out of the reserve before gates close at 6.30pm, or drive for hours to get to wildlife action, because Entim is in the middle of it all in the heart of the Masai Mara National Reserve!
The word ‘tent’ doesn’t really do justice to the 12 new luxury en-suite guest rooms 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 our open-fronted dining deck.
Sit on your veranda and look over the Mara River at one of Africa’s greatest stretches of savanna, with the Rift Valley escarpment in the distance. Migrating wildebeest gather on these riverbanks and begin their migration into the Masai Mara. You will hear the sounds of grunting gnu, hippos, hyenas and lions from your bed at night. These wild animals are very closeby, so our red-robed Maasai 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.
The Entim experience is not your average hotel or lodge; it’s a feeling of being part of the landscape and having profound encounters with wild animals and Maasai people in their own land. It’s a sharing of passions and significant moments in the heart of one of the most famous wildlife reserves in the world.
It’s the ultimate safari!

The Masai Mara
The Masai Mara is one of the world’s most venerated game reserves, because once you’ve seen its big skies, rolling savanna, great herds of animals and variety of birdlife, you’ll never forget it. At Entim we make sure that becomes a truth because our experienced Maasai driver-guides have grown up around here and possess an innate ability and instinctive talent to read nature’s signs as if it were an open book. Each day there is something extraordinary to see and our guides will reveal it to you. They are particularly skilled at providing great photo opportunities, for entertaining children with bush lore and for sharing wisdoms about their extraordinary way of life.
According to custom, grazing cattle is the God given right of Maasai and their cows provide most sustenance needed by a Maasai family. Farming is considered a foolish, back-breaking way to scrape a living! The Maasai lifestyle is completely at odds with western practices, but there are many insights to be gained. Ask your guide to take you to his Maasai homestead –you can book this excursion while in camp.
