We stayed 3 nights in early Feb. 2012. From the moment we got there until the moment we left there was not a single detail left to prepare for. The tents, which are more like apartments with canvas walls, were totally inviting and had all the amenities you could need. The water was hot, the lighting was ample, even little details like having bug-spray and toiletries already in our room were taken care of.
The staff were extremely hospitable and we interacted with everyone from the manager to Maasai tribesmen also on the premises who are there to escort you from your tent to anywhere in the camp anytime, day or night.
Location wise, the camp is on a cliff overlooking the river where Hippos and sometimes a Crocodile were present. It was the slow time of the year but we still saw all the big attractions (Hippos, Crocs, Wildebeest, Giraffe, Elephants, Lions, Hyenas, Ostrich, Zebra) and about 30 types of deer, and the list goes on. The river has a junction point just metres beyond the far end of the camp and during the migration is supposed to be very active. I myself was able to walk down close to the river bank in the day time (again, happily escorted by a camp tribe member who patiently waited while I got my fill of picture taking of the Hippos 30 metres away).
My wife and I loved every minute of our time there and are anxiously looking to make some time to go back again during the migration season.
