Stayed for one night, friendly attentive service, lovely clean tents, good food and plenty of it and very close proximity to the park gate. The pool was clean but you would need to keep an eye on children as there is no lifeguard on duty. You get woken on a Sunday morning by the singing from the local church but that just meant we were awake for a morning game drive!
Highly recommended and I would stay there again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ikweta Safari Camp, a small owner-operated tented camp, is about affordable luxury, as well as high standards and great value for money. Located just 2 km from the Murera Gate of Meru National Park, Ikweta is a year-round destination and a convenient base for exploring both Meru and Kora, two of Kenya’s national parks to offer a complete wilderness safari experience. Ikweta offers ten spacious canvas tents with thatch roof overlay of doum palm (Hyphaene thebaica) indigenous to the area. Tents are airy and cool by day and cozy and romantic by night. Tastefully decorated in Safari-style with high quality furniture including either twin or double beds, writing tables and safes. Each tent has its own en-suite bathroom with solar-heated hot water for showers separated from the bedroom area with a natural stone wall. Each has private verandah facing East for the most stunning sunrises. You can sip your early morning steamy hot Kenya coffee or Kenya tea, while you Facebook or Tweet as the sun rises over Meru National Park. Tents are fitted inside and out with electric power sockets for guests to be able to power their laptops or charge their electronic devices and camera batteries. Our large salt water Swimming Pool is delightfully warmed year round by glorious sunshine. Our “Two Zebras Restaurant" serves fresh produce grown in the Camp's own Greenhouse and Ikweta Farms. We offer international and vegetarian cuisines as well as children's menus. Each guest is served to order: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner! You're in the bush but we provide Wi-Fi access throughout the Camp: You can connect to the Internet by the Pool or at your Tent or in the Residents Lounge or at the Restaurant… Catch up with news on DSTV. No night time blackouts or ‘10:00 o’clock night-curfews”: There is mains electricity backed-up by a high-capacity generator. If you are awaked by the sounds of nature you can snuggle under your duvet and read or watch movies on your iPad or DVD. Optional morning and afternoon game drives or itineraries to interesting places in the vicinity of the Meru-Kora Conservation Area. Nature walks to the Gatwe (“Skull”) Hill for panoramic and spectacular views of the Meru-Kora Conservation Area and the Nyambene Hills. ... more less
