Didn't know what to expect in a tent. I was very surprised. Lived waking up to the sound of the Hippos. Food was amazing as well as entertainment from locals. The safari rides was probably the coolest thing I have ever done. Saw all of big 5 plus a lion kill. Would love to go back.

From Ngerende it took only 10 minutes drive to Fairmont Safari Club. We even started with a little safari right there, saw hippos and crocodiles! Once...

Grounds are beautiful and the location of the tents right on the river are spectacular. You can sit out on the deck and watch the hippos and an occasional croc in the river.

The location is on a northern conservancy rather than the actual park, which is highly beneficial as in the park you have to remain on the roads and the best of the animals are out of reach, whereas here the drivers take you within a sensible distance of the animals allowing excellent photographic and wonderful observation opportunities.
