Comfortable tented accommodations – the tents are spacious and include a front porch. The screened sizes zip down to allow sunlight and breeze in. Hot water bottles provided in the bed in the evening (as it can get quite cold). The location is quite nice – many animals visit the watering hole throughout the day. Meals were buffet style with some action stations (omelet, pasta). Food was decent, nothing to write home about, but good enough for safari. Continental and Indian options available.

I spent 3 nights at the camp hotel. Good buffet food at the restaurant, excellent service by the managers, waiters, stewards. Covid_19 protocals observed. Animals come at the waterhole in front of dining room. Olpejeta park has good game(rhinos galore, elephants, lions, Buffalo, girrafes etc). The Spa service was excellent. The only downside is the tents are close to each other, not sound proof at all. So you hear any activity, noise from your neighbor. Hope management can find a way to sound proof tents so all clients can relax. The swimming pool is also small, hope a bigger one is made, since temperatures are high in Nanyuki. Regards Clare C.

The tent accommodations were our favorite lodge. All lodges were great, but having your tent feet away from a water hole with rhinos, water buffalo and other animals was a highlight of our adventure to Kenya. The safari's were outstanding. The short flight from Amboseli memorable as it was our first dirt runway landing. The friendliness of all the staff with their big smiles was comforting. Thank you Kenya for sharing your beauty!

What a heaven on earth that is so perfectly located and very scenic. I have so many memories of Sweetwaters tented camp and by far the best of 3 stops made while visiting Kenya. The welcome drinks were superb, tented accommodations were spacious with plenty of hot water and super comfortable beds. Hot water bottles to go to bed with for the chilly nights made sleep easy after the game drives! Going to sleep and hearing the wild animals blend nearby made the safari experience extra special! I was never worried of the wild animals as there is very noticeable security all round the camp, You cannot go wrong with the food here. There was variety and sumptuous breakfast and dinner. The game drive safari was just wonderful. The tour guide was great in explaining and sighting wildlife. The smiling staff were friendly and made us feel at home. I will never forget the 7 star massage service provided by Rhoda after a game drive. Has the most dedicated service. She knew where to apply pressure. The hot stone massage provided to me was the best I have had in my life. Even out here in the US it does not match for 90 mins. All tensions from the long drive melted away, all stress and anxiety ebbed away and had the best sleep of my safari. If out there, please request for her. Definitely talented!! was the best in my travels of Kenya. If you are searching for a luxury tented camp this is the place to go. I loved the rhinos the most! Thank you Sweetwaters Serena!!
