          Hi every time I put in dates for Joys Camp up pops all these other camp sites but none for yours. Is it because you are full? Im thinking 6 people Sept/Oct 2017 for maybe 5 days then on to a beach holiday to end it. Please can you get back to me with availability and prices. Kind Regards Lesley

          Hello Lesley, Joys camps is currently not operational. Was closed some months back.You may need to book another facility. Try Sambusru Interpids, Saruni Samburu or sasaab.
