We stayed in an individual tented room at this camp, where everything from arrival through departure was just perfect. The accommodation was immaculate, with a comfy bed, impeccable linens and modern bath facilities. Staff was attentive but not imposing and the general manager was always available for feedback and assistance. Would return to this lovely facility in a heartbeat!

Ideally located 1/4 mile outside the Amboselie national park where elephants abound amongst other wild animals. This camp is quite large with probably 30+ lodges which have slate floors and internal bathroom walls all covered by tent canvass sides. Beds were a bit hard but otherwise the rooms were fine. There is a pool, bar lounge and open and covered...

I don't quite understant how people would not give a 5star to this place. What else can one ask from a safari lodge? We had a tent with unobstructed views of Mt Kilimanjaro, the tent itself was amazingly clean and spacious, nicely decorated, with local touches, and a beautiful veranda. Bar and lounge had a peaceful and pleasant atmosphere, pool...

within few minutes of Ambiseli National Park, the camp is perfect for a night or two as you visit. The tents are huge, our family of four had room to share. Food was good, but the boxed lunch was lacking. To be fair, the boxed lunch was mediocre at best during the entire trip, so they are not alone! They...

Our stay was brief but beautiful at the same time. The staff were so welcoming and hospitable especially Ben the manager and the kitchen staff. The tents were huge and kept us cool despite the heat in the savanna. The fooooooood! Ah! What a treat! Loved every bit of this staycation.

A warm welcome, friendly helpful staff, excellent food, clean comfortable rooms.Very close to the Amboseli National Park... about a 5 minute drive. IF you get up to go for a drive before breakfast around 6am, you will probably see Mt. Kilimanjaro in the rear. Fantastic scenery! My son has several food allergies, and the Chefs were willing to cater to...
