My wife and I were lucky our agent George, with Let's Go Travel in Nairobi, arranged for us to spend a few nights here in late February 2012. We have stayed at many tent camps during our four African trips and this is right up there with the best. It is a long travel from most everywhere and you do have to climb a few stairs from your vehicle up to the camp but when you reach the top you find a wonderful dining tent with indoor and outdoor seating. The bar is well stocked and they even have Amarula from South Africa, which is not easy to find. The staff is wonderful and the suspension bridge between the dining tent, the small curio shop and the sleeping tents is cute. The tents are hidden under and around some great trees and they are built about 4ft off the ground on steel poles with a solid foundation, what I call an elevated tent camp. It is not a mobile camp so everything is fixed in place. The food was wonderful, the service great, and we were lucky the camp General Manager, Nick Wood, was there when we were so enjoyed having drinks and dinner with him. He is a great host and it was very interesting to find out about the 2nd project he is working on outside Nairobi, setting up a manufacturing plant to make "Kili Creme", a great drink that may rival Amarula some day. The wildlife abounds around the camp and you can find almost everything you want to see. For the 1st time in four trips to Africa I finally got a pix of a lioness taking a bath about 30 min from this camp. If you want a real Africa experience, vs a luxury lodge, this is your place.
