The adventure camping is great! It was far much better that we had expected. We were impressed by the organization, the toilets and the beauty of the place.
The food was excellent, and I must say that Solomon, our chef in Selenkay did make me put on some extra weight while there. He is great!
As for the game drives, it was an unforgetable experience. The drivers and guides are great spotters and shared a lot of knowledge with us. We got to see all the animals we wanted.
Also, staying at the conservancies with the Maasai was the best choice we made, I'm so glad we booked the trip with Gamewatcher's. They are great hosts, showed lots of professionalism and kindness. We loved visiting the Maasai village in Selenkay, that was WOW! I also consider that I made good friends there, both in Selenkay and Ol Kiney, and for that I'm forever grateful.
The animals are great, but for me it was the people who made this experience so special and unique.
Besides, it was a very exclusive experience, without all the fuzz and buzz of the National Parks.
This is great value for money! I cannot imagine any better safari option than this.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Gamewatchers Adventure Camp, Selenkay, is sited in the Selenkay Wildife Conservancy in the Amboseli eco-system. For those for whom the wildlife safari experience is more important than the accommodation, and who are prepared to sleep in small tents in sleeping bags with an element of “roughing it”, this gives an opportunity for an exceptional and exclusive wildlife experience with high quality guiding but at a much lower price than expensive up-market safari lodges. ... more less
