My wife and I spent parts of three days and two nights at this wonderful "tented" camp. Don't let the word "tented" fool you. The accommodations were first class and the food was five star. Kudos to the chefs! The camp uses solar energy for all its power and hot water. The hosts were friendly and very informative. The majority of the staff are Masai, who themselves are also knowledgeable, kind and protective. And our Masai driver-guide, Dixon, was the best. We saw a lot of animals but very few other vehicles. What a great stay we had. We highly recommend it!
