“Just perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012 via mobile

I just got back from my 2days safari. A very interesting but tiring experience so the peaceful anud relaxed atmosphere at the camp was just the most i could have wished for.
The personnel is very polite and helpful, owners are nice people and the food is awesome. The italian food that was served was better than the one it is served in italy (i am italian).
The camp is located right on the main river and you can watch monkeys go around at every hour of the day and also seeing hyppos and crocodiles from time to time while relaxing on a confortable chair right in front of the river itself. It is definitely a must-go

“Little Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

Stayed for just one night in this tented camp. Italian run, the food and service was excellent. I'm talking home made pasta and bread with olive oil. After roughing it for 3 weeks in Kenya, this camp was bliss. The tent had a bathroom built at the back of it and there was fresh water for washing and even a mosquito coil lite as the sun went down. The Italian hosts were very welcoming to all the guests. The waiters looked out for everyone's safety when a elephant entered the camp after an alfresco lunch. On the bank of the river, there was more elephant spotting and fantastic sounds of the wildlife overnight. i would definitely reccommend at least one night here.

“Excellent location, fabulous service and wonderful food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2011

We have 3 kids under the age of 5yrs and this camp was just perfect for the night. The staff were really attentive to us all; the food was magnificent (very Italian!) and suited everyone and the tents perfectly adequate. Located on the river edge we heard hippos and eles at night, saw lovely birdlife during the day and had two excellent game drives to spot a wide variety of game - most significantly the elephants.
Highly recommend this camp if you are looking for a relaxed camp atmosphere with excellent food and service.
