This was our first Norman Carr Camp and we were not disappointed. On our arrival we received a warm welcome from all of the Staff members. We arrive around 3:00 after non-stop travel from 5:00a. Knowing we had been in route all day, the Hostess reserved a plate of lunch for us, nice welcoming.
Our room was great, clean and the beds very comfortable. Just sitting on our deck was like being on a Safari, one morning we counted the sight of 11 different animals. The outdoor shower added a nice touch, along with the in room bathtub.
Our guide Simon is very knowledgable and patient with us photo happy people. This place is wild life abound. On the night drives we stopped for some of the best Sun Downers ever...
I can't pick one "highlight" of the trip because the entire experience made staying at Mchenja a highlight of our African vacation.
If you're looking to book a Holiday to Africa, I highly recommend Aardvark Safaris to help you plan. Although not affiliated they have high remarks in regards to Norman Carr Camps which we found to be true in all aspects.
