A sheltered oasis, clustered around a waterhole and set in the pristine calm of its own private reserve, Sweetwaters Tented Camp is in a class of its own. Abounding with wildlife, unfettered by the more rigorous strictures of the Kenyan National Parks and designed to offer a charming blend of under canvas ambiance and uncompromising luxury.

We upgraded to a tent near the watering hole and it was well rewarded. Our first evening we watched 9 giraffe, 13 zebras and rhinoceros come by to drink. We were thrilled and fascinated. The kitchen was very accommodating to our needs.

The accommodation was beautiful. We were in a tent, on the Morani side. A little far off from the watering hole. Loved it, the food was a good spread, even gluten-free bread! Our sole disappointment was the Night Safari, we had someone called Leonard, I think, we started late

The location of this property is amazing, the camp overlooking the water hole is a highlight. Watching the animals come for a drink is a photographers dream. Unfortunately we only stayed one night here but it was a highlight of the trip. Watching a herd of animals watching

Great location. Just disappointed with the tend as we have booked king size bedroom and two single beds were pushed next to each other making a very uncomfortable double bed. Food was nice all across. Disappointed by a very small swimming pool

"View of watering hole"
"As for one of the tents #40 and above facing the plains. Get a family sized one if you have two kids like we did."
"Go out early on Safari. Take a fleece. Cool only in early morning and late evening."
"Confirm your booking before leaving your house and go for delux room which has owsm view from your room."
"Closer to the watering hole is better viewing, but any cabin will do."
