It's in the Mara and has great food and service. The rooms were very good (not amazing) but completely comfortable and well cleaned. The biggest challenge here was no wifi in the rooms and if you're in room #46-47 you might smell the septic tank. That said, the gift shot,

Dear Esteemed Guest, Thanks for your interest to our luxurious tented camp. The price quoted in our tariffs is exclusive of safari drives, of which is extra always quoted separately. You can always get in touch with our reservations for in-depth analysis of these.

I was there in January and the evenings were chilly. The days were generally warm. It is better to ask the hotel about this. I am sure you will love it.

Dear Katherine, Thank you very much for your interest in our luxurious tented camp. Its gratifying to note that apart from the desire to stay you would also want to partake to the different exciting activities we offer, bush dinner being one of them. Bush dinner involves set up of the guests table, full buffet and bar in the wilderness? These however can as well be held by the river close to the camp subject to the guests preference. Its sort of a fully sledged restaurant in the bush so to speak as is complete with waiter service and even has a mobile toilet? The price is USD 45 pp and attracts minimum numbers ie 4 pax to confirm on these function. The price is inclusive of the food and entertainment of which is maasai dance, but not the drinks of which have to be catered for separately. Its unfortunate I dont have any images to share, but believe these explanation will give your a rough idea of what to expect. Thanks again and looking forward to hosting you soon!
