Spent two wonderful days as the camp as part of safari & coast trip. It was a wonderful introduction to Safari and Kenya. Jimmy's ability to drive, spot and educate all at the same time is second to none and we were lukcy enough to see the Big 5 by early on our second day. The camp itself was great, food (& Tusker Beer) was wonderful and being woken up by roaring lions in the early morning was (surprisingly) a highlight.
We also went on the Balloon Safari & Bush Breakfast from this camp - not cheap but the sight of wildebeest & zebra's as far as I can see and getting almost eye to eye with a giraffe will stay with me forever!!
