We LOVED our time and hated to leave! The pictures on the website really do not do it justice. Though it was a tented camp beside the Talek Gate everything about it seems well thought out to give a good experience and comfort. We chose to drive from Uganda as far as Narok and then used a car hire to drive out to Aruba Mara Camp and then another hire for an all day game drive the next day and we are so glad we did! The roads are washboard rough! The only thing that could have made it better was if we had hired a safari vehicle to also carry us from Narok to the camp. The road was so bad (not the fault of the camp), that it marred the coming and going to the camp. Spend the extra money to upgrade to a Toyota Land-cruiser Safari vehicle to make the entire experience as nice as the stay at Aruba Camp itself and the drive within Maasai Mara. All the meals were 3 courses and delicious! We even had children who were picky eaters and they made special meals for them. Gerda suggested we get a free transit pass from the Sekenani Gate to the Talek Gate. Going to the camp, our driver said he didn't think he could get one and went a circuitous (and very) rough route. Leaving we were able to and it was a much better experience.

The Aruba Camp was the ideal spot from which to visit the Maasai Mara. It is located right on the Mara River near the Talek village and reserve gate. Guests can view birds and other wildlife daily from the comfort of the back deck our their tent deck. The accomodations were very comfortable, and the food was good as were the guide services. Be aware that some of the Maasai guides speak better English than others. All guide services and the costs must be negotiated and well clarified in advance to avoid misunderstandings. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Gerda User Profile

Hello dear African lovers,
my name is Gerda, I was born in 1961 in a small village in Bavaria, Germany.

My first trip to Kenya was in 1984 and I directly fell in love with this beautiful country and its amazing wildlife.
Since then I kept on travelling to Kenya again and again and I knew, one day I would try to make a living there.

So, in 2000, at the age of 38, I emigrated to Kenya and I started my work in Mombasa. In the beginning I planned and managed safari tours through the Eastern part of Africa. During that time a lot of visitors gave me the idea to build a basis camp and thus, only three years later, I found a nice place in Talek, a small village in the north of Masai Mara. Actually, I started on a campsite with a small shower and a toilet, but that was just the beginning.

Since 2005 (with our first solid tent) the Aruba-Mara Camp has grown a lot: Nowadays you can find 16 tents in three categories (bush, comfort and luxury tents) and there is also a campsite.
I love to sit together with my guests around our cozy fireplace or veranda with its amazing view giving any tips and advice. I also like to help all my visitors to plan their journey with my profound knowledge about Eastern Africa and safaris.

Our guests can either come for a short time to visit our camp and great restaurant or they can additionally book game drives to Masai Mara National Park or even longer safari trips through Kenya.

I always do my very best to keep all our guests happy and make them feel like home in my Aruba-Mara Camp.
So I want to welcome everybody to this wonderful place close to Masai Mara.
