We underestimate the time it would take us to driver from Mbale Uganda to Basecamp (do not follow Google Maps!!) There was a much better and smoother way to get to the camp than the one Google Maps told us to use - so I recommend you do NOT take the road into Talek gate but rater come through Oloololo Gate where the roads are much much better then drive through the park to ge tto Base Camp. Thank goodness the Camp Manager Seif came to our rescue as we were lost in the dark in the middle of nowhere!!
An incredible experience and a beautiful camp awaited us once we got there. Wonderful setting with great safari tents and delicious food. Very good value for money.
Would totally come back and stay here - just will drive through a different way. Also if you are thinking about going to Serengeti from here - do NOT go to Sand River Gate which is closed. They may let you through but you will have an absolute nightmare with immigration. So you are better off driving to Isebania border to Tanzania and entering the Serengeti through the Western gate.More
