The food, tents, service and the safari was all great. I highly recommend it was by far the best hotel/experience in kenya. The tents are big, and very clean; you have a wake up call to your tent with hot chocolate, coffee or tea and cookies... the food is excellent the menu changes every meal and it is cooked to...

Comfortable accommodation with good food and efficient staff. Nice location near the river and very near the airstrip. Childrens' club was excellent and what sets this property apart from others. Always insist on a receipt for the daily park fees, esp if paying in dollars.
