My first trip to Africa was made even more special by this special place. Food, lodging, staff - all were great. We especially liked our guide, Ken Kisio, who went the extra mile to find us a view of rhinos (2!) AND a group of 6000 wildebeest crossing the Mara River. A great finale to a great trip. Thanks.

We had 150 people in our group. Our accommodations were very comfortable. The tent-like cabins had modern bathroom, comfortable bed with mosquito netting. The floor was wooden planks. Hot water bottles were provided to warm our bed. The landscaping was lovely. The property had been built to preserve the large trees. Each cabin was quiet. The food was good and... More

Took a three night trip here while in Africa for other purposes, and what fun! It was jam packed with safari rides, Masai dances at the Camp, and we finished with a wonderful tour of a Masai village very close by. It was expensive, but I'm glad we splurged because, like I noted in the title, it was a trip... More
