Excellent Location and Employees
Julia’s River Camp has the absolutely best employees, so friendly and concerned that we had a good experience. We want to give a special thanks to Lucky (our game driver - the best), Patrick (our waiter), and Meshak (our Masai warrior). All these inidividuals made our stay so memorable...thank you. The location is perfect, tucked along side the Talek River inside the reserve for the best game viewing. The Masai Mara is so beautiful. We’d highly recommend this place for the special employees working there.
