We camped with our own stuff. The campsite was nice with water and a boiler for hot water. But we should have stayed in the bandas as they looked really lovely and since we had three meals at the lodge, were only about 1000KSH more!
The meals were very nice home cooked food and very plentiful.
The swara plains have a good range of plains game - giraffe, zebra, gazelles, hartebeest and lots of wildebeest. Cheetah are supposed to be here, but we werent lucky enough to see them. You can walk about because there are no dangerous predators, elephant of buffalo. Seeing the animals on foot is great.
The drive to the airport would be about 30 mins and it took us between 45-90 mins to drive into the centre of Nairobi.
