My wife, our 15 year old daughter and I spent 4 days and 3 nights here in mid July. The camp is situated on the bank of the Talek river, with luxurious tents set on solid foundations. Ammenities include wood floors, seperate shower and toilet, really comfortable beds. Wifi is available at the reception area, cell phones work fine with a tower nearby. Electricity is available almost all the time (off between midnight and 5 am). The beds were turned down at night and a hot water bottle was placed in under the comforter. Really special!!! So was the wake up call, where our room steward Gedion would come to the tent with hot coffee and tea, which we had ordered the night before.
We had an absolutely fantastic time here. The staff are superb. They were consistently warm, helpful, and really genuine. Abby and Francis were our waiters/tress, Both were always welcoming and friendly. They remembered our names the first day. Many of the staff are Maasai, who have grown up in this area, and they know it so well. The food was consistently good.
We have to mention our guide Samson. He has to be one of the very best guides in the business! His knowledge of the animals and their behaviour is astounding. He can see animals miles away, when they are just specks on the horizon, knowing immediately what they are, how many of them, and where they are going. Often, we would be the first vehicle at a particular viewing spot (with the best location), and others would follow. His love of the animals and the entire environment is obvious. He stopped the vehicle at one point to pick up a pop can that some bonehead had left behind. He is warm and funny, and we feel so lucky that he was our guide.Thank you, Samson.
