We spent several days travelling around the Northern Circuit and can honestly say that this was by far the best site I have EVER stayed in.
The site is sat atop an escarpment and has spectacular views of animals walking past. To add a touch of security the site is patrolled at night by the Massi warriors who also acted as guides on our first day. On arriving at the campsite you are greeted by the campsite manager and you will be introduced to the staff at the campsite. We arrived late and the chef was very kind to provide us with a lunch which would rival any top London restaurant. We were shown to our tent which is one of only about a dozen. In the evening you are invited to sit around a campfire with the other guests. Dinner is served on a communal table which was allowed a friendly atmosphere. Other guests would share their stories and experiences.
Unlike other campsites all the drinks are free (except spirits) and this includes some amazing local wines and beers.
The tents are very well furnished and the site boasts a strong commitment to the environment. You can order a shower because all the hot water must be brought to your tent by hand. I will never forget watching the game crossing the escarpment whilst we had breakfast. A short distance from the campsite you will find a vast number of cats and other animals. The campsite manager had sited a large family of African Wild Dogs passing through the site only days before our arrival. We found a family of Cheetah a short drive from the campsite who I believe were possing for us¬
On leaving the campsite it felt as if we were departing home. An unforgetable location and experience. Thank you.
