For a little extra, you can go to Galdessa,it's worth it,the French lady Silvia was fantastic,even the tents were spotless.
If you want to feel like an explorer in the wilds of Africa ,this is the place,so much wildlife.
Big bull elephant walking pass your tent about 3ft away, you can even smell him.we stayed in tent 1 main camp,that's the tent all elephants,Hippos,walk pass when they leave the river.
We took a bottle of champagne with us,it was pure magic,having a glass on your veranda whilst watching and listening to the real Africa.
The Masai guards add that proper feel of being in an old black white Tarzan film.
