My wife and I spent 3 nights in camp. Sasaab was the first of a 4 part visit to East Africa and did not dissapoint us, even with all the hoopla in the reviews.
The positioning of camp and our quartrers are on the side of a hill overlooking a river and vast plains beyond. Just an awesome view. The quest quarters are individual units, very spacious and well appointed tented bugalows with high thatched roofs and open air seating with spectaular elevated views to the plians accross the river. I nodded off in our bungalow plunge pool at dusk and awoke to the most spectaular starshow I have ever seen. There are plenty of plugs to recharge batteries, hot water for showers and the linen service was prompt and efficient.
The food is fantastic and the service is exemplaray, meeting our asks graciously and promptly. Both walking and 4X4 safaris were filled with game and spectacular photo opportunitites. Back at camp, the resident cats, DikDiks and a plethora of birds were host to a lively environment.
Oh, almost forgot about the spa, which the Mrs enduldged twice to her highest approval.
