What a wonderful time I had! The camp is indeed in the middle of nowhere, (a sign on the main road would be helpful) but that is a huge positive in my view as you will be feeling part of nature. The place is run by a village cooperative and you do have a feeling that by staying there you are actually helping these people to be better off. The nearby national park has no fences so the animals do visit the surrounding areas but again, that is a positive to me. Also, there are maasai guards on the premises who look after each guest so it is a safe bet to stay here. The staff in general is very kind and helpful, the quality of food is of a very high standard. Even though this is a camp and a generator provides electricity between 6 and 10 PM the tents are clean and comfortable and you quickly realize that you do not need 24 hr electricity and a spa and fitness center where you stay to feel good. My favorite is the "bush TV" : a set of chairs by the campfire to sit down and enjoy the sunset.
