The Sweetwaters property is perfect for families traveling with children. From the meals provided via buffet to the swimming pool, this property, located inside a well maintained conservancy, is perfect for traveling with kids. There are wonderful animals to be seen by the watering hole, including a thirsty rhino during our visit in January, and the family can even take their own vehicle through the park on safari. I also recommend visiting the chimp conservancy within Ol Pejeta property.
Drawbacks: the tents are right on top of each other and there is no soundproofing. This means you will hear everything from crying babies to conversations conducted in the surrounding tents. The dining room is also extremely chaotic with mad rushes to the buffet lines as soon as the tent is opened.
This is not a luxury property by any means, but is perfect for a family outing. If you are looking for a romantic weekend, seek lodging elsewhere, including The Fairmont's Safari Club.
Additional note: I concur with other reviewers in their assessment of the female gatekeeper. She is unpleasant and far from efficient. Bring small change to pay your fees, if at all possible, to make the process easier.
