We spent two nights in basecamp with gamedrives several times a day. It was truly an amazing experience, we saw so many different animals and lived in a beautiful tent (don't be scared, it's super luxurious) in stunning surroundings. You wake up to a mix of several different mammals, birds and insect sounds and monkeys on your porch. The food...

High quality lodging from what you would expect out in the wilderness with water and electricity as well as excellent Food. Knowledgable guides and amazing game drives where we saw everything from Cheetas, to Lions, Zebras and Leopards to name some. Highly recommended

My safari to Masai Mara was such a wonderful experience. Flying along the way, we had a beautiful view of Mt.Kilimanjaro and the Great Rift Valley. ‘My land is Kenya, so warm and wild and free….’and the beauty it holds. Only when you take a flight then you can be able to tell. It took us about 2 exciting hours...

The camp location is beautiful though the tents itself somewhat lack luxury. We had booked the family tent (2 adjacent and connected tents) directly though the camp website but were brought to a triple bed tent upon arrival. The tent and the beds were rather small and needless to say that we were not pleased. Following a complaint with management,...
