Great Location, sumptuous food, good service...the list is endless. The tents are well appointed and with a good view of the Ewaso nyiro river. Duncan (the Manager) and his team made our stay very comfortable and memorable. I will definitely be back

A bumpy ride through a Reserve on a hot sticky day to arrive at this oasis of tranquillity. The staff were fantastic and the arrival brief by Chris was well presented and delivered. This is not a standard hotel in a game park, hospitality service and cleanliness are a 5 star rating. Food was excellent as well. The tented room...

Our waiter Joesphat & driver/spotter Dominick exceeded any expectations. Joesphat anticipated every need in advance, while Dominick led us to spectacular elephants and amazing big cats. A highlight of...

It was HOT! The monkeys were cute and a hilarious addition to meals and time at the pool. Great activities like quiz nights for patrons after game drives putting to test what you learned and saw.... like how many teeth does a crocodile have? 🤔 There was a limited option of drinks at the bar and the bar man was...

The lodge and staff are wonderful and the setting is amazing! The restaurant is nice and the service excellent! Beware of the monkey that will steal your food right off your table at the restaurant, however! It's funny, until it happens to you!!

I have stayed and reviewed the camp a few times. Yet again I enjoyed my stay this time bringing a larger family group. We especially enjoyed relaxing by the pool in between the game drives, and then meeting up with James, the excellent naturalist. James helped make our stay special, again.
