After a long 3 and a half hour drive to the camp it was great to be greeted with a cool drink and a nice chat. The camp is beautiful and remote, with the tents spaced nicely so that every one is private. The only sound you hear is that of the wildlife around you.
The game drives around the Selenkay Conservancy and in Amboseli Park were made great by our guides, Andrew and Daniel, who explained all about the animals well without needing any promting. On the drives there is always a selection of drinks in the cooler (coke, water, fanta, etc) so you dont need to take your own. The jeep was also a really nice one; comfy!
Due to the low number of guests its lovely to sit around the campfire at night and chat before/after dinner, and timings are always relaxed so although your up early, you dont feel you have to rush to get going.
Dinners are lovely, three course with good drinks and top ups. I would recommend the sundowner, as we really enjoyed this, watching the setting sun with views of Mt Kilimanjaro, seeing hunderds of birds drinking from the pond and elephants walk past (all whilst with a glass of wine and nibbles)
The Maasai village was an experience for sure, although I think it is hard to make a trip like that feel natural, it was done well and just the right amount of time.
You do a lot in 3 days, and they seem to fly by. We both would love to come back again some day.
