Richard's camp was full of unexpected surprises. The accommodations were amazing and felt so surreal to be in the middle of rural Africa with all the sights and sounds but still able to enjoy sleeping in a king size bed and having cocktails on a sofa in an open air living room! It felt so luxurious having coffee, chai and... More

We spent 3 nights at Richards camp and I have missed it ever since!! The highlight for me was the game drives. Our guide, Lenkume, was amazing. He could spot animals that looked like dots on the horizon to me. I will never forget the day we were zipping along when he stopped, pointed to a far away hill, and... More

My family of four stayed here last summer and we LOVED it. The teenagers were duely impressed with their tent, bucket showers and food. Our hosts were beyond excellent and our guide through the Mara was absolutely wonderful. We cannot wait to go back.
