This hotel was amazing and the staff were attentive and very friendly. This hotel is in the forested area and surrounded by electric fence to keep out dangerous animals at all. The food was excellent and they provided buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday. They organize their own organic garden which supplies the kitchen with luscious and plentiful vegetables. Potatoes,...

Love the Sarova hotels in Kenya. This was our first Safari and had heard about these amazing tented sites...I'd call it glamping! Hardwood gloors, comfortable netted beds. Tile bathrooms with showers! The groups were beyond expectations as the site was on a river with baboons, crocs and all kinds of wild life. We loved it

Lovely comfortable tent. With great mattress. Clean and efficient toilet space. In forested area. Surrounded by electric fence to keep out dangerous animals, but on the resort itself were mongoose, dik dik and and other small animals. Nights so calm that one literally listens to the quiet! Suck in some of the cleanest air on Earth. Breathe in tranquility, breathe...

This place was amazing. The food was excellent. The staff were attentive and so very kind. The "tent" was very spacious and comfortable (see photo). Each tent has its own en suite bathroom, which is great. The camp is only about 2km from the main gate, which is great because your safari begins as soon as you leave the gate...
