We stayed as a family of 4 with 2 teenagers 16 and 18 for 2 nights in July 2014. We wanted a small scale authentic and responsible experience of the conservancy and amboseli. Everything was excellent. Warmth of welcome, luxury tents and no Mosquitos, excellent vehicles.. The Masai guides could not be faulted. Their knowledge was encyclopaedic and they bridged cultures with a genuine warmth. I recommend this trip for its richness in animals and birds which are abundant in this natural environment. One highlight and bonus was our guides picked up lion tracks and pursued them until they found 2 male lions guarding a recent kill. Elephants in amboseli will blow your mind and all in the shadow of Kilimanjaro. Don't miss the opportunity to visit one of the Masai villages which benefits from the conservancy income. Our thanks to Tony Jonah and julius for their hospitality. Not cheap but every dollar spent was worthwhile and benefits the Masai, the animals and ourselves.
