Lovely staff and ok food, but the camp is still in the 1990s and really is not worth the price. It's too hot - there wasn't a breath of a breeze all day: plunge pools outside every tent - like Elephant Bedroom in Samburu - would be one answer. These can be covered by canvas when not in use, to prevent elephants from drinking from them.
