Where to start with this amazing camp?? Firstly i am glad that we had our last 3 nights there as had we been at the begining of our trip nothing else would have been able to compare, this place is the way to do safari. So lets start with the basics. The camp is pure luxuary, where else would you see a dining table in a tent with a chandelier over it or 2 of the most comfortable sofas I have ever sat on. Also as they only have a maximum of 12 guests at any time it gives the place and exclusive and intimate feel. The tents are of a similar standard with acres of space, great views and fantastic fittings. Hot water is avalible whenever you want it for a shower (and as much as you want rather than a standard 20l). The food and the service are also second to none.
The camp is located in a remote spot of the mara triangle and you are surrounded by game. Each group gets their own car with a driver and spotter. Ours (Madebe and Sadala) were fantastic finding us all the game we asked for and putting us in prime position for 5 river cossings. The crossings cannot be described they are a true wonder of the natural world (even when you have spent 9 hours doing nothing but waiting for the very stupid wildebeast to decide to cross!). You are able to take both a breakfast and lunch out as a picnic (which i recomend) to get the most from your day. Having lunch under a tree looking at the mara river is wonderful!
Evenings at the camp are also very special with pre dinner drinks around the campfire followed by a fantastic dinner around the communal table. Chatting with the other guests and Alex and Gerard was great, even if we did clear out slightly more of the alcohol than we meant to.
All in all a wonderful way to end our honeymoon, now I just have to save up to go again!!
