We stayed here for two nights while on a five day Safari in late April / early May. The camp is carved right out of the bush with a dozen or so large, well appointed tents. These are serious tents with proper beds, linens, lights, and running (hot) water. The only thing they didn't have were electrical outlets for charging cameras / electronics but there is space in the main lodge to do that.
The staff was very friendly and welcoming. There is nothing like a cold beer and hot meal after tracking animals in the Serengeti all day. After dinner there is a camp fire to gather around to share stories, gaze at the stars, and practice your Swahili.
Very cool experience to be staying among the wildlife. There were two giraffes visible from our tent the first night and several elephants further in the distance. We were a little nervous to be staying in the African bush at first but the camp is well patrolled and protected by the Maasai.
Absolutely wonderful place. The staff also knew it was our honeymoon and provided champagne in the tent and went as far as making us a special cake on our last night! A big thanks to Frank and his staff!
