This camp could do with a revamp. At first glance the room with its spacious bathroom looks comfy but once we started settling in we found broken lampshades with broken lamps and tired bed linen. The staff are friendly and accommodating and int short space of time we were there we had to get them to fix our fan, unblock... More

Actually visited this camp twice in the past three months with family. Very nice and quiet with friendly staff. I spent several hours in the viewing tower just watching the beauty of the scenery and visiting with other tourists. Mount Kilimanjaro is just an amazing view. Staff was friendly and helpful, food was very tasty, and rooms were clean with... More

Had 3 day, 2 night stay at basic but nice hotel with spectacular 360 degree views from 3 story viewing tower. Rooms are simply furnished but clean and nice. Our bathroom area was clean and well stocked. Showers were wonderful after a dusty day seeing the wild game. Had fabulous view of Mt Kilimanjaro right from our private room porch.... More

Had a great stay here in the Deluxe Tents and bathtub was an added bonus. Great view from the room of Mount Kilimanjaro and also spectacular view point from the roof. Also a family friendly hotel that takes consideration of the whole family including kids and the elderly.

Located just outside the Amboseli National Park, the hotel has a fabulous view of the Kilimanjaro but nothing else. The tented room was nice and big, with large bathrooms. Nice wardrobe closet with a safety locker. The food lacked variety - though the restaurant was impressive in size. The service at the bar was half-hearted. The pool is the largest... More

Liked the fact that it's basic and at night no electricity at all...stars everywhere!! Tents are ok,although the attached bathroom is quite dirty and always full of insects and mosquitos. very basic bar,staff not really enthusiastic. Chargers available in the dining area. Swimming pool onsite but seriously dirty so i wouldn't use it.

We stayed here during the Easter holiday. The camp is located next to the entrance of Amboseli park. I must say everything here looks the same as the pictures on their website. Rooms are big with a view of Mount Kilimanjaro. The food was also good. Having said that, I was disappointed by the service we received upon arrival. They... More

This was definitely tenting at its finest! The tents were amazing! There were two beds, a desk, dressing table,wardrobe closet, double sinks in vanity, separate toilet and shower rooms. There was a nice patio with two chairs and small patio table. Mt. Kilimanjaro was visible from our tent. The pool was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The... More

I know that it seems strange at a tented camp just outside of the Amboseli Game Reserve in Kenya. However, this resort has the most beautiful outdoor pool that I've ever seen. The centre is deep, perfect for swimming. Around the outside is a shallow area with concrete lounge chairs, perfect for relaxing. Add nice bridges, beautiful landscaping, etc. Nice!... More

I visited this place as part of an Official meeting and found these guys to be spectacular. 1. All rooms face the Mt. Kilimanjaro and its exquisite. 2. In all my travels in Kenya I have not come across any hotel where food tastes as good as it tastes here. We all came back several pounds heavier. 3. The rooms... More
