At 1st I was really scared of staying in the tents and I hoped we would have it changed with the raised ones,my stay turned out to be a real good and relaxing experience. However the staff at the hotel are a little withdrawn, this is a little unlike the other places I have been to. I enjoyed the food...

Our first stop on our Kenyan safari. The hotel itself was very relaxing with some lovely views over a watering hole with Mount Kenya in the background. This is situated right in the middle of Ol Pejeta conservancy so animal sightings are a common while you are sitting outside your tent. The staff are really friendly and the service is...

This luxury tented camp is all that !! Beautiful accommodations and views that stun. The bathrooms are well appointed and amenities are first class. The watering hole in front of the tents is visited by every animal and bird imaginable. Sitting on the porch of the tent and watching these creatures arrive at sunset is breathtaking. Meals offer plentiful choices...

Right in the middle of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the camp is well situated from the Game Drives and the conservation centers. The Chimpanzee conservation programme is very close and the White Rhino Conservation center is very close. Even the board that reads 'You are on the equator' is a 10-min drive from the Camp. The camp itself is spread...

We spent a weekend at Sweatwaters from June 18 to June 19 while visiting Ol Pajeta Conservancy. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. This is a well kept place. The staff was incredible. The environment is made for a very relaxed time there.

The tents are very spacious and the one's at the edge just overlook the jungle. You can see Giraffes and grand gazel right from the porch of your tent. The food is awesome and the services are first class. They also have other activities like archery and night safari. Tea and coffee bar is all round the day. All in...

Well what can I say this place is just heaven. We arrived around lunchtime after a 4/5 hour journey from Nairobi. We were given a hot towel to freshen up and a lovely fresh juice. Check in was quick and efficient. We had a beautiful tent. One huge bed and a single bed for my young son which we ended...
