Close to Nature with Safari Elegance.

"THE SETTING OF SENTINEL IS

Breathtaking."

Sentinel Mara Safari Camp is situated in a prime area of the Masai Mara with easy access to annual migration crossing points. The Musiara Marsh area renowned for its outstanding game viewing is where both the BBC “Big Cat Diaries” and Disney’s “African Cats” were filmed. You are assured of an excellent game viewing experience. During the annual migration, various crossing points are easily accessible from Sentinel.

The camp itself is set up along the Mara River with wonderful bird life and the private and natural setting ensures that guests have a most enjoyable and authentic experience of the bush. Being on high banks above the Mara River means that there are always hippo and crocodile in the river below to be seen with other animals coming to drink, or cross the river at times.

Absolutely fabulous.

Food, accommodations, guides, and the people there were wonderful.It is amazing to be able to sit in front of your tent and look down into the Mara river and see hippos, crocodiles, and even elephants crossing.

I can’t recommend it highly enough!

Once in a lifetime, best views in the Masai Mara

What an amazing experience with an incredibly friendly and professional staff. It’s hard to imagine anything closer to paradise then Sentinel Mara Camp. Between the lovely bedding, five star meals and hot showers, I can’t think of any need that wasn’t met during my stay. Thank you Peter and staff.

A combination of wild safari and modern luxury.

This is a wonderful safari camp. They manage to give their guests a combination of the beauty of the natural surroundings, replete with safari tours and exotic animals and then the guest is pampered at the camp. The pampering includes bedding that is super comfortable, food prepared by top-notch chefs, wonderful wine, service by a friendly and well-trained staff.
The camp is well-appointed with furnishings reminiscent of turn of the century safari, “Out of Africa” styled furniture and genuine leather and wood to transport you to a different era.

Eco-camp perfection

The site is beautiful and the staff is very attentive. Jonathan was a great guide—very knowledgeable and patient. The food was delicious. You can’t beat sitting by a river and watching the hippos and crocs and hearing the lions roar. Peter was a great host. Anything we needed appeared.

Amazing place! Sentinel Mara Camp cares, about nature, the animals and you!

Truly an experience of a lifetime! When major health issues make you reassess your definition of “someday”, and you decide to take that “once in a lifetime” trip, I highly recommend you allow the amazing folks at Sentinel Mara Camp take care of you! From the moment you arrive, the staff of this environmentally friendly camp, makes your every desire a priority. The location is second to none, placed on the Mara River, in the heart of the Maasai Mara and the meals rival any fine dining establishment in America. You are completely engulfed in nature, surrounded by the animals, in a setting so beautiful it’s hard to describe. I thank God for the blessing of seeing the Mara and I thank Sentinel Mara Camp for making it truly the trip of a lifetime!

Jaw dropping hospitality

I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for the extraordinary hospitality we experienced at Sentinel. From the warm welcome upon arrival to the jaw-dropping game drives led by Benson, every moment surpassed our highest expectations.

Chef David’s culinary delights, the soothing cocktail hours by the fire, and the knowledgeable camp staff added a unique touch to our stay. The blend of luxury and tasteful decor created an “Old World” charm that enhanced our safari experience without compromising the natural feel.

In essence, Sentinel offered not just a safari but an immersive encounter with wildlife, accompanied by a level of hospitality that left us eagerly anticipating a return.
