What a wonderful experience to stay at this camp. The staff was so eager to serve us, which was a treat for someone from the service industry!!!
We were greeted with a juice and refreshing towel and they gave us a quick briefing of the grounds and what we could do while we were there. Generators run the camp around 6:00pm till 10:00 am.
The tents were very nice, with rattan cots and misquito nettings. Their version of a turn down service is to put the netting in place for you, remove the bedspread, which looked beautiful when we returned to our tent. Flush toilet, shower and sink are in the tent (seperate section).
At night we could hear the hippos jumping into the river. Maasi warriors guard the campground as Elephants and Hippos do come over. In fact you are not allowed to walk around after dark with out one of these warriors!!!!
In the morning we went on a nature walk with the warriors who stayed up all night to guard. They showed us were the Elephants and hippos came at night! Monkeys also run around the campground!
4 course meal at dinner, hot breakfast and a take away box lunch were all included in the price.
There is even a small gift shop and you can watch the movie about Col. Patterson who trapped and killed the man eaters (lions) who were killing the railroad builders in 1896.
The staff even sang us a song when we left, and we promptly sang O Canada for them!
This camp is one of the nicer accomodations we stayed at, and totally recommend it!
