Overview of Ngerende in the Wild Riverview

Ngerende in the Wild is a classically-styled wilderness camp that harkens back to the pioneering safaris of the 1920s. Designed with simplicity in mind, yet uncompromisingly comfortable and luxurious, Ngerende delivers an experience as close to nature as possible.

With the Big 5 resident all year round, the wildlife in the region is phenomenal. But it is during the migration season that the real drama begins when over a million wildebeest and zebra move through the area in search of water and fresh pasture. Undeterred by drought or crocodiles, blind instinct drives the herds past a multitude of predators and through perilous river crossings in their quest for survival.

Situated on the bank of the famous Mara River within the Masai Mara National Reserve, Ngerende in the Wild is only fifteen minutes from a key crossing point for the massed herds. Experience this incredible event from the intimate perspective that Ngerende in the Wild has to offer. With only two suites and two luxury tents, this intimate camp allows an unrivalled level of service and attention to detail.
