We visited in Sept 2013. We were surprised by the camp's approach to conserving nature and making sure our involvement did not alter the landscape permanently unlike most camps in SA.
Nothing is permanent in this camp (no concrete or permanent structures; the default setting can be restored in a moment, no trees have been displaced to make way for tents). Let this not fool you, the service is exceptional; Right down from the agents to the chef. Natural is a theme that is heavily extended to all aspects of your stay... lighting, hygiene, food, water and waste disposal. In my opinion, the food is exceptionally made to excite your taste buds and the home made approach underlines the personal touch.
If you want a proper city life detox, I highly recommend this. If you prefer intimate moments with your better half or your thoughts, then this is the place to be.
The elephant orphanage educates one on the realities of elephants in Africa as a whole under the siege of illegal tusk harvesting while at the same time offering hope about the future of elephants. We all know what is happening to our rhinos.
This is your last chance to witness the big five just on the outskirts of Nairobi, a first in the world!
Have you ever imagined carrying your little luxuries to the wild without negatively affecting nature?
This is Africa at the end of the day, plans/logic do not always prevail and flexibility should always be kept open as an option.
