I am breaking this review in 3 sections :
a. Service and Stay - We've been to so many places, visited atleast 10 countries and stayed in all sort of places including some 5 star hotels etc. too but the service that you get from these people - I guess no one can even imagine coming close to it! People and staff there - they treat you like a god - always there for you - always smiling and even guessing what you might need so that they are ready even before you ask! The best people in the world - always smiling! Chef was amazing too with some mouth watering food options. Wilson the head over there is always ensuring you are having best of the times for yourself!
b. Conservancy - Very good conservancy and a heaven for bird lovers - dont miss it! We saw group of elephants drinking waters, showering and also taking mud showers after that! Very rich in wildlife - there is a leopard there as well and a group of cheeta too... even though they are not as easy to spot there as Zebras and Giraffes. My bet is your chances of seeing cheeta is probably 1 in 5 game drives and the shy leopard 1 in probably 10. There are ostriches too. Ambesoli national park was an amazing experience too.
c. Guides - Our guides were Shady and Fostine (sorry if I am spelling your name wrongly :-( ) and they were very good - very knowledgeable about the wild and bird life around there. They were doing their best to give us a good time and experience. Though we wish we had Wilson because he is just amazing but understanding he can not travel all of us around and there were no probs with Shady.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Gamewatchers Adventure Camp, Selenkay, is sited in the Selenkay Wildife Conservancy in the Amboseli eco-system. For those for whom the wildlife safari experience is more important than the accommodation, and who are prepared to sleep in small tents in sleeping bags with an element of “roughing it”, this gives an opportunity for an exceptional and exclusive wildlife experience with high quality guiding but at a much lower price than expensive up-market safari lodges. ... more less
