We learnt about the existence of this place very recently and tested it week before last. We did not expect much but were very pleasantly surprised! It really is in the middle of a bush and at night time you won't even make out whether you are in Mara or Nairobi. The tent is basic but the beds beautifully warmed by hot water bottles. If u r lucky, u may even get more than your regular quota. Our guide Andrew was very knowledgeable and we had some great sightings eg a secretary bird nesting with its mate, hippos and lions obstructing our path. And a majestic juvenile martial eagle. However, because there aren't much activities, 2 nights is the maximum you should stay here. Ideally check in the afternoon to enjoy a game drive. Two more the next day and then leave the next morning. Be warned that the temperature here is a few degrees lower than the city!
Food was nice and sharing a table with the other guests was fun!
