Kibo Safari Camp

Amboseli National Park

Kibo, a four-star camp, oozes cosiness and a genuine safari vibe.

Located just outside Amboseli National Park, the camp offers great views of Kilimanjaro.

There are 73 charmingly appointed tents of varying sizes. The bathroom in the tents has partial brick walls, and there is solid flooring throughout. The sides and roof, however, are made of canvas, giving you the best of both worlds; a tent in the middle of the beautiful African nature!

The tents are decorated in light, airy colours with good use of natural materials, in keeping with the surroundings outside. Beautiful details adorn walls and floors and help create the cosy atmosphere.

The bathroom has a flushing toilet and hot and cold water.

All tents have their own veranda with chairs and tables – the perfect place to relax with a good book in the middle of the day.

If you’re more tempted by a dip in the pool, it is, of course, also possible, and massage is also offered at Kibo. We also recommend a trip to their well-stocked souvenir shop – we’re guessing you won’t leave empty-handed…

Meals are served in the partially open restaurant overlooking Kilimanjaro.

Ol Tukai Lodge

Amboseli National Park

The view from Ol Tukai is absolutely stunning.

At sunset, you may be lucky enough to capture  the classic shot of elephants standing like small rocks in front of the towering mountain, Kilimanjaro, illuminated by the last rays of the sun.

The lodge has 80 luxurious cabins sleeping 2, all of which have a double bed and a bathroom. The rooms are modern, comfortable and built in natural materials such as the wood of the rubber tree, local stone and slate.

All rooms have their own terrace, which offers a beautiful view of the plains at the foot of Kilimanjaro.

In addition to the view, the main attraction is the delightful common areas. Enjoy a cold drink at the bar, hop in the pool for a swim or go for a walk in the garden – all while enjoying the beautiful views of Kilimanjaro.

Deluxe Room Per person from:  £39

AA Lodge Amboseli

Amboseli National Park

AA Lodge Amboseli is situated just 2 km from the main entrance to Amboseli National Park, and affords panoramic views of Mount Kilimanjaro.

The lodge is relaxed and cosy, and its garden blooms with beautiful, colourful flowers in the middle of the otherwise dry landscape. The lodge consists of both cabins and tents with an en suite bathroom, separate entrance and features a safe, a hair dryer and an electric kettle for making tea and coffee.

You will be staying in one of the 29 classic and very spacious tents. You will have your own little veranda outside from which you can enjoy the view of the garden.

The restaurant and bar have both indoor and outdoor seating, allowing you to dine inside or relax with a drink while enjoying the stunning views of the savannah and Mount Kilimanjaro

After your safari, you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the swimming pool or purchase spa treatments. In the evening, you have the opportunity to experience Masai dance entertainment or relax around the fire pit, while the bartender fixes a cocktail for you.

You have access to electricity and hot water 24 hours a day as well as free Wi-Fi in all common areas.

Tulia Amboseli Safari Camp

Amboseli National Park

Situated in a private area of natural beauty, just outside Amboseli National Park (and without a fence separating it from the national park), is the extremely charming Tulia camp.

We’re almost tempted to call it a “boutique camp”. Your blood pressure drops as soon as you arrive. Amboseli can be very dusty, but the entrance to the camp is almost like stepping into an oasis, and you can almost physically feel your heart rate lowering and the dust settling.

There are 29 tents here, which are spacious and well appointed. There aren’t a lot of frills here, but everything has been thought of anyway. All tents have their own veranda – some of them even have their own plunge pool –  and there is a view of Kilimanjaro from all of them.

The whole camp runs on solar cells, and they’ve really thought about things. For example, to save on electricity, you get hot water in thermos jugs in your tent, so you can still make a cup of coffee and sit on your veranda overlooking the mountain, but without each individual tent having to use electricity to boil water. All laundry is done by hand. It requires less electricity, saves on soap, is less wearing on the fabric – and it creates jobs. The vegetables are grown in the kitchen garden, and the kitchen tantalises your taste buds.

As the park is located in a private area, it is possible to purchase additional activities which are not permitted in the national park. A game drive just after sunset is probably our favourite.

Suffice it to say, we’re pretty much in love with Tulia!

Tawi Lodge

Amboseli National Park

If you dream of a lodge that has the intimate atmosphere of a smaller camp, where you feel close to nature – without staying in a tent – then you should choose to upgrade to Tawi.

Tawi consists of 13 “cottages”, all of which are elegantly appointed in a rustic style and oozing charm. All rooms have both a shower and a bathtub in the bathroom, and on the veranda, there’s space to enjoy the book you brought with you. At Tawi, the walls are made of stone, while the doors and windows consist of mosquito nets. So you have the comfort of a proper, brick-built room, while still being able to hear the sounds and smell the aromas outside through the nets. It’s worth noting that the rooms have relatively open bathrooms, so Tawi is best suited to couples.

Your meals are enjoyed in the restaurant – many of the vegetables are grown locally, and the dishes are prepared from scratch.

Like Tulia, Tawi is located in a private area, making it possible to purchase a safari in the evening after the sun has set. Or how about a guided walk in the bush?

Amboseli Sentrim Lodge

Amboseli National Park

On its own closed road, right up against the entrance to Amboseli National Park, is the Amboseli Sentrim Lodge, which offers an utterly extraordinary view of Africa’s highest mountain, Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Here, you spend the night in one of the 60 big, spacious tents spread out across the fields. Each tent features comfortable beds, a small seating area, refrigerator, tea and coffee facilities, as well as their own little porch and private bathroom complete with jacuzzi, sink and toilet.

After an eventful day of safari experiences, you can unwind at the pool, in the green garden, or purchase a massage treatment. If you haven’t had enough of Africa’s magnificent nature, you can enjoy it almost without interruption from your own porch or from the sun terrace of the lodge, which also serves as a lookout point for the whole area.

The restaurant serves a wide selection of delicious meals for you to enjoy as you look out over its unique view of the mountains. Conclude your day with a drink at the bar. Free Wi-Fi is available in the reception.

Luxury Tent Per person from:  £39

Amboseli Sopa Lodge

Amboseli National Park

Situated close to Amboseli National Park, at the foot of Kilimanjaro, is this cosy lodge.

The spacious cabins are dotted throughout the 200-hectare property surrounded by beautiful gardens with lush plants. There are 83 rooms in total, which are spacious with plenty of space for both you and your luggage – and all have their own veranda.

And a visit to Hemingway’s Bar is a must. The view from here is perfect for the sunrise or the sunset. The lodge also offers a lovely outdoor area with a pool and an absolutely fantastic view of the top of Africa.

Lake Naivasha Simba Lodge

Lake Naivasha

Close to Naivasha Lake is where you will find this good tourist class lodge.

Its 70 spacious rooms are located in blocks of 10 rooms. There are 6 rooms on the ground floor and 4 above. All rooms are furnished to accommodate a small seating area, and all have their own terrace or balcony. All rooms have tea/coffee making facilities, a TV, safe and Wi-Fi. It is possible to book connecting rooms if you are travelling as a family.

Surrounding the room blocks is a large, well-kept garden, reminiscent of a classic European park. It is not uncommon to encounter zebras, giraffes and impala if you go for a stroll in the grounds. If you are really lucky, you might even see the wild animals from your own balcony or from the breakfast restaurant. The grounds also feature a delightful pool with plenty of space for sun loungers.

There is a restaurant at the lodge, a small shop and the option to enjoy a massage.

Lake Naivasha Country Club

Lake Naivasha

Set on the shores of Lake Naivasha is Lake Naivasha Country Club. The place oozes history and is one of the oldest resorts in Kenya.

Built in 1937, it served as a staging post on the then very long journey by the flying boat service from Durban to London. The plane landed on the lake, and while it was being refuelled, passengers could rest at the newly built Country Club. The site has since been modernised and extended, and today consists of 50 rooms, all of which are located around the lovely big garden filled with beautiful trees and colourful flowers. The colonial style and history are still very much in evidence.

There are various room categories, but all rooms are spacious and stylishly appointed with an en suite bathroom, TV, minibar, free Wi-Fi, safe and private veranda.

There is a restaurant, bar, day spa and pool.

Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge

Lake Naivasha

This lodge is perfectly situated on a large pasture consisting of Acacia bush and beautiful trees . The lush surroundings attract many of the savannah animals and make it possible here to see giraffe, waterbuck and vervet or colobus monkey.

There are a total of 84 rooms and 21 cottages with colourful stone walls both inside and outside. All rooms have panoramic windows and open porches. Additionally, the lodge provides facilities such as a sauna and beautiful outdoor swimming pool.

Mara Simba Lodge

Masai Mara National Reserve

Situated on the banks of the Talek River is the 4-star Mara Simba Lodge. The lodge was built with respect for the surrounding nature, so the fact that it has 84 rooms comes as something of a surprise. The pleasant garden is well kept and full of butterflies and exotic birds, but just outside the lodge area, the wild nature prevails. Built mainly from natural materials in neutral colours, the lodge oozes safari ambience from the moment you set set foot inside. The communal areas afford a lovely view of the river, so you can look out for elephants coming down to the river to drink as you eat your breakfast. The lodge has a pool, restaurant, bar and even a small souvenir shop.

The rooms are located in small clusters of six rooms to a “house”, all of which are just two storeys high. All of the “houses” are linked to each other and the main building by a series of raised walkways, all of which are well lit in the evening. The rooms are spacious with an en suite bathroom and a private veranda.

If you want an even more authentic African safari experience, you can choose to upgrade to a tent at Mara Simba Lodge. The tent has its own terrace and own bathroom, but canvas walls so you can hear and smell the nature right outside. It’s a true African safari experience!

Price to upgrade from hut to tent, per night:
Double Room Tent Per person from:  £77

Zebra Plains Mara Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve

This 4-star camp enjoys great views over the plains of the Masai Mara, allowing you to see the animals wandering past while you eat your breakfast, and from the tent at night, you can hear the impalas “barking” and the lions growling.

The camp is made up of canvas tents.

20 in total – which can be set up as a single, double, triple, yes, even a family tent, if you’re travelling together as a family. They all have a solid floor, a private bathroom with hot and cold water in the shower, mosquito nets around the beds and large windows (consisting of mosquito nets which can be closed by rolling the canvas down over them), so you can enjoy the scenic view of the plains around you. Each tent has a small “veranda” outside with chairs and table from which you can enjoy the view – and perhaps a good book.

In the communal areas, you’ll find both a dining tent and a lounge tent, which are cosily furnished with soft armchairs, rugs and cushions in the beautiful colours of the Masai. There are two outdoor campfire areas from which the sunset can be enjoyed with a cool drink in your hand

You have the option of having a massage, and naturally there is Wi-Fi in the communal areas.

Zebra Plains River Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve

If luxury with a touch of homely cosiness is the order of the day, we highly recommend an upgrade to Zebra Plains River Camp.

You’re made to feel welcome as soon as you arrive, and it’s hard not to be impressed by the view of the plains on the other side of the river. The entrance to the camp is designed so that the eye is drawn down towards the walled campfire area with its beautiful, colourful cushions – and beyond to the fantastic Masai Mara.

The lounge/bar and restaurant are particularly spacious, and the large windows provide light and a feeling of grandeur.

The camp consists of 15 tents. There’s ample space here for a bed, cosy corner, minibar and your luggage. There is also plenty of space on the veranda and a view of the Masai Mara – and should you be feeling a little lazy, you can even just lie in bed and enjoy the view through the large windows. Wi-Fi is available in all the tents.

If you need to cool off after the day’s safari, you can jump in the pool for a swim.

Little Zebra River

Masai Mara National Reserve

Little Zebra River is everything Zebra Plains River Camp is – just smaller and without a pool.

The tents are the same as at River Camp, the area around the campfire is just as charming with its coloured cushions and superb view of the Masai Mara, and the bar and restaurant have the same feeling of airiness, light and space about them.

However, there are only 9 tents here, so we’re tempted to call it a “boutique camp” – and a nice one at that!

Ilkeliani Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve

Ilkeliani is a tent safari at its best!

The 8 tents are all erected on platforms, giving you a unique view from your veranda, and providing effective air ventilation around and under the tent.

“Tents” is probably the wrong word to use to describe them. “Suites” would be better. The walls might be made of canvas, allowing you to both hear and smell the nature around you, but everything else is like something from a 5-star hotel room.

The beautiful wooden floors are in perfect harmony with nature outside, and the colours of the furniture and rugs are muted to ensure that the tent does not unnecessarily draw any attention away from the surroundings outside.

The tents are located a good distance away from each other to guarantee you your very own personal experience without being able to hear your neighbours.

It goes without saying that there’s a bathroom – and from the shower, there’s a view of the bush outside.

The mess tent offers good food and is a great place to share your experiences of the day’s safari. Here, too, the walls are canvas, and the luxurious ambience is assured with beautiful furniture and elaborate lamps.

In the evening, the camp fire is lit and you can enjoy the view of the starry sky before a local Masai accompanies you to your tent for the night. The camp is not fenced in, so when you walk around in the evening, you are always accompanied by a Masai – again, classic safari style!

The price applies when there are at least four people. Please contact us for the price for two people

Price to upgrade from Mara Simba, per night:
Tented Suite Per person from:  £193

Tipilikwani Mara Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve

Situated on the banks of the Talek River is the cosy Tipilikwani Mara Camp. The camp consists of 20 tents, all of which are very large and pleasantly appointed with floaty curtains, varnished floors, colourful carpets and an en-suite bathroom with partially bricked walls. All tents are erected on raised platforms and have their own veranda offering a stunning view of the nature around you. The tents have electricity around the clock.

With its partially bricked walls and solid floor, the restaurant building feels more like a good hotel than an actual “camp”, and in the lounge, you will find comfy sofas where you can relax after the experiences of the day.

Tipilikwani has a small pool which, however, is more suited to a dip than a swim, but it’s great after a whole day of safari! Wi-Fi is usually available in the communal areas.

The price applies when there are at least four people. Please contact us for the price for two people.

Tent Per person from:  £64

Mara Maisha

Masai Mara National Reserve

If the weather is on your side, Mara Maisha offers one of the most beautiful sunsets over the Masai Mara! From the pool area (sneak out there even though the pool is actually closed for the day by the time the sun is going down), you get the most phenomenal view of the game reserve, with the sun slowly sinking behind a small hilltop on the horizon.

The camp consists of 73 tents, spread over an area with bushes and trees in between them. The camp might be big, but it doesn’t feel like it.

The tents are large with plenty of space for luggage, and very cosy. All of the tents have their own veranda, and the floors, both inside and out, are fixed, giving you the feeling of staying in a room – albeit with canvas walls. Wi-Fi is available in all the tents.

The bar and restaurant are the perfect place to relax, with soft sofas and cosy corners, and, like the tents, are furnished in natural materials such as wood and stone. The colours are muted, placing the focus on the nature outside.

Sarova Mara Game Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve

During your stay in Masai Mara it is possible to upgrade from Mara Simba lodge to Sarova Mara Game Camp. This is a great option for people who wish to get closer to the nature.

Sarova Mara Game Camp offers a front row seat to one of nature’s most amazing shows, migration, during the period of August to late October. Over 1.2 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra are tracked by Africa’s predatory wildlife, whilst travelling for thousands of miles each year to escape drought.

The camp consists of luxury tents and offers various activities and experiences. These include the opportunity to take part in bird walks, play miniature golf or go fishing.

Price is applicable for four people. Please contact us for prices relating to two people.

Price for upgrade per night:
Deluxe tent Per person from:  £77

Mara Leisure Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve

Along the Talek River, in one of Kenya’s most famous nature areas, Maasai Mara, is Mara Leisure Camp, a comfortable tent camp.

You will be up close to nature here, and you can both hear and smell wild nature waiting just outside the tent canvas!

As a unique touch for a tent camp, there is a lovely pool here for you to cool off in after the day’s safari. There is also a pleasant lounge area here which offers free Wi-Fi, and the camp has its own restaurant as well.

The camp consists of 22 tents of different sizes – each with their own bath and toilet. The tents are on raised platforms, which provides good ventilation between the tents, and all feature wood flooring. Some of the tents have fixed doors at their entrances, but most feature a typical canvas door with a zipper – the classic safari style! All the tents have space for tables and chairs – both indoors and outdoors.

Entim Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve

Sitting there in the comfy chair with a nice cup of coffee in your hand, you briefly wonder why on earth you need to go on a game-drive today. It’s all right there in front of you! You have unobstructed views of the plains of the Masai Mara over on the other side of the river, and a waiter pops over at regular intervals to ask if you need anything.

You’ve pretty much just woken up after a great night’s sleep, interrupted a couple of times by what might have been hyena howls, but that’s sleeping in a tent for you.

The comfort, on the other hand, is top notch! The tent might be canvas, but there’s plenty of space for tables, chairs and the soft bed, and they are all beautifully upholstered in natural colours, so as not to “disturb” you. It goes without saying that they all have their own “bathroom” at the back of the tent, with hot running water in the shower. All 12 tents have their own veranda overlooking the plains.

You’re sitting in the mess tent. The large wooden platform outside the dining area is raised above lawn, and the views are phenomenal. The food and coffee are excellent, and it is this combination that makes you question whether you need to move at all.

But of course you do. You’re in the Masai Mara! You’re in the north-western Mara, and you’ve probably chosen to upgrade to Entim because it’s migration time. The location of the camp is incomparable for this, and during the period from July to October, you don’t have to drive far to enjoy a perfect view of the magical sight. And luckily, there’ll be coffee in the pot again tomorrow.

The price applies when there are at least four people. Please contact us for the price for two people.

Luxury Tent Per person from:  £312

Mara Intrepids

Masai Mara National Reserve

If you’re travelling with your family and would like to stay in the heart of Mara (perhaps during the summer holidays, which is also migration season in the Masai Mara), we recommend an upgrade to Mara Intrepids.

With its 30 tents, the camp is a relatively large camp for this part of the Masai Mara, which also gives the option of different types of tents.

Intrepids is also great for children! They have a well-developed “Adventurers’ Club” offering a host of activities for children, and the camp also has a good pool area. This doesn’t mean that you’re not welcome if you don’t have children with you. The tents are nicely spread out, and there’s room for everyone – and as an extra bonus, the camp is fenced in, allowing you to walk around in the evening.

The tents are classic safari tents with canvas walls and zip-up doors, but with the luxury of proper bathrooms with brick walls and proper doors.

Mara Explorer

Masai Mara National Reserve

If you fancy feeling like Karen Blixen or Hemingway for a few days, Mara Explorer is the place to choose. Old travel suitcases are piled up along the tent canvas here, and you can almost make out the outline of the typewriter on the desk in the tent.

The camp consists of just 7 tents, all of which overlook the river (Talek). The camp is a true bush camp in the best sense of the word. During the day, the tents are open, allowing the breeze to air the furniture and bedding well, and it goes without saying that the bathtub is on the terrace, overlooking the river. The tents are well hidden away between trees and bushes, so you’re guaranteed privacy.

From the camp’s communal area, there’s an impressive view of the Talek River, and if you ask us, you’ll be hard-pressed to choose between this view and the view and comfort of your own tent.

You’re in the middle of the Mara, so if you manage to drag yourself away from the view, phenomenal game drives await you all year round – and during the migration, you’re close to lots of crossing points.

In our opinion, the camp is best suited to couples.

Mara Ngenche

Masai Mara National Reserve

Dream of experiencing the great migration right up close? Then do yourself a favour and upgrade to Mara Ngenche. Mara Ngenche is located slap bang in the middle of where the Talek River meets the Mara River, and during migration season, you may be lucky enough to see wildebeest and zebra crossing the river from the camp’s terrace. Naturally, it’s impossible to know exactly when and where which animals will cross the river, but even if there isn’t a crossing right by the camp while you’re there, it’s still hard to beat the location. The hippos grunt and the crocodiles lie in wait. This is how it is all year round, and you’re in the heart of the Masai Mara with easy access to all the areas.

The camp consists of 12 tents, all of which are tastefully appointed in a mix of “Out of Africa” colonial style with a modern touch. All tents have either a large double bed or two queen-size beds and all have both a shower and a bathtub.

Mara River Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve

In the north-western section of Masai Mara, you’ll find the classic, cosy Mara River Camp. The safari camp affords a direct view of the Mara River, which is inhabited by hippos and crocodiles – and where, every year during the great migration, the latter lie in wait, open-mouthed, for the prey to arrive.

One of the oldest camps in Masai Mara, Mara River Camp has all the charm you would expect of an authentic safari camp.

When you stay at Mara River Camp, the focus is on nature, and the tents are comfortable but somewhat spartanly furnished.

Its 22 tents are all made of canvas, so you can both hear and smell the nature right outside, and yet they all have their own shower/toilet, electricity around the clock and their own balcony overlooking the Mara River.

Meals are taken in the cosy restaurant, and in the evening before dinner, you can enjoy a drink on the terrace overlooking the river. The camp has a nice pool area where you can cool off after the safari, and Wi-Fi is available in the communal areas.

The price applies when there are at least four people. Please contact us for the price for two people.

Deluxe Tent Per person from:  £71

Ashnil Mara Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve

Imagine lying on a sun lounger on your own large wooden deck outside your tent in Masai Mara. You can hear the hippos fighting down in the Mara River – the river that is at the centre of the great migration every year and which this camp is located right next to.

You’ve been out on a game drive in Masai Mara all day, but now you’re just sitting relaxing and enjoying the sounds of the bush. Your tent has the look of a classic safari tent, but in a luxurious way. There are canvas walls but soft beds with a mosquito net around them, and a private bathroom with hot water. You might have a little nap in the chair. At night, you can clearly hear all the animal sounds through the canvas wall, so you were awake a couple of times during the night. But who doesn’t want to be woken by the sound of the lions roaring in the distance?

Perhaps you prefer a dip in the pool to get refreshed before the sundowner at the bar followed by dinner. No matter what your preference, you’re in the midst of everything at Ashnil Mara – surrounded by nature.

The camp has a total of 50 luxury tents.

Price is applicable for four people. Please contact us for prices relating to two people.

Eka Hotel Nairobi


Situated a few minutes’ drive from Nairobi’s international airport is this modern, 4-star hotel.

Nairobi National Park, Karen Blixen’s former farm and many other of the city’s top attractions are close to the hotel, and it’s easy to get in and out of the city – and to and from the airport – from here.

The 167 rooms are all modernly appointed with an en suite bathroom, air conditioning, a flat-screen TV, a safe, tea/coffee making facilities and free Wi-Fi.

The hotel has two restaurants and two bars as well as a pleasant outdoor pool terrace. If you feel peckish, you can visit the local coffee bar, which serves coffee and delicious home-made cakes. The hotel has a spa offering a wonderful massage after a hard day’s safari.

Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel


Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel is a five-star hotel with international standard, located in the centre of Nairobi.

It was built in 1904 and has retained an atmosphere characteristic of that period in time with its beautiful gardens and historical interiors.

It also has a restaurant, bar, swimming pool, spa and fitness centre.

Karen Gables


To call Karen Gables a hotel wouldn’t be quite right. It’s more of an extended Bed & Breakfast. It actually feels a little bit like coming home.

The beautiful Cape Dutch residence in the Nairobi suburb, Karen, forms the setting for the most fabulous getaway, close to the otherwise busy city, and is the perfect place to relax for a few days after a busy safari.

There are only seven rooms here, all individually appointed with respect for the beautiful building. The rooms have soft rugs on the floor and cushions in matching colours.

The restaurant at Karen Gables serves breakfast (included in the price), lunch and dinner, so you needn’t actually leave your new home from home. Should you still get the urge to explore, your hosts will naturally be more than happy to help arrange activities.

Otherwise we recommend reading a good book or looking through your photos in a shady spot in the garden, or perhaps enlisting the help of your hosts in organising a much-needed massage after the days spent in the safari car.

It goes without saying that there is Wi-Fi throughout, and the bartender is always at the ready to mix your favourite cocktail.

If you’re not going to round off your Kenya safari with a beach holiday, we warmly recommend a couple of days here!

Standard Double Room Per person from:  £199

Samburu Simba Lodge

Samburu National Reserve

The location is as good as it gets! From Samburu Simba Lodge, you have a view of both the river and the plains, where giraffes, buffaloes, lions, elephants, etc., are enjoying nature’s pantry.

The lodge consists of seven small, two-storey “houses”, each with ten rooms. The rooms are cosily appointed in typical African style. They all have an en suite bathroom, ceiling fan, tea and coffee making facilities, but most importantly, a large terrace or balcony, overlooking the plains and the wildlife.

The lodge has its own watering hole, which attracts the animals, and for the people staying there, there is a nice pool to cool down in. There is a restaurant, pool bar and the option to have a massage. There is also a small souvenir shop at the lodge.

Elephant Bedroom Camp

Samburu National Reserve

If you really want to spoil yourself, we recommend upgrading to Elephant Bedroom. This is a classic African tent camp at its very best – in the heart of the wilderness yet still luxurious.

The 12 tents are impeccably appointed with soft beds, wooden floors, fabulous rugs in beautiful colours with ample space for the bed, table and armchairs in the tents. Naturally, all tents have their own bathroom with running (hot and cold) water. All tents have their own terrace, where there is a small plunge pool to cool down in on hot days.

The big drawer is the camp’s “lounge”. Sit yourself down in a soft chair, order a cold beer and enjoy the view of the river in front of you. You won’t want to leave! Fortunately, you don’t have far to go to the restaurant – it is located in a neighbouring tent next to the lounge. The food is amazing, and if you’re lucky, lunch will be interrupted by an elephant entering the camp.

Price is applicable for four people. Please contact us for prices relating to two people.

Ashnil Samburu Camp

Samburu National Reserve

On the banks of “the brown river” in the Buffalo Springs part of Samburu is where you’ll find this camp.

There are 30 tents, all of which have their own terrace outside overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro river (which means the brown river). Kenya’s third-longest river, it is in many ways the lifeline to this northern part of Kenya.

The spacious tents all have their own bathrooms, showers with hot and cold water and a flushing toilet. The floors in the tents are solid wood while the walls are canvas, allowing you to both hear and smell the nature outside. You get to enjoy an authentic “bush experience”, without having to compromise on comfort.

The camp has a lovely pool, so you can cool off in this often hot, dry part of Kenya, and from the restaurant you have uninterrupted views of the stunning countryside around you.

Free Wi-Fi is available in the communal areas.

Price is applicable for four people. Please contact us for prices relating to two people.

Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge is perfectly situated with amazing views of mount Kilimanjaro and the volcanic mountain range Chyulu Hills.

The classic stone-built lodge has its very own watering hole, which is frequented daily by elephant, buffalos and a wide variety of wild animals.

There are 56 rooms at the lodge. All rooms have their own veranda, some with views of the watering hole and others with views over the Chyulu Hills.

The lodge has a central thatched dining area and a bar built from natural stone. The restaurant and bar are connected to a terrace which has a direct viewpoint over the watering hole.

It is also possible to take a dip in the lodge’s swimming pool and relax or sunbathe on the sundeck.

Ziwani Tented Camp

Tsavo West National Park

At a private game reserve just outside the westernmost end of Kenya’s biggest National Park, Tsavo, sits the cosy Ziwani Tented Camp.

As a fairly unique selling point, the camp offers night game drives. This is only possible because the camp is located just outside the national park. Fortunately, the animals don’t know this, so you have great opportunity to see some of the nocturnal animals that are not usually spotted on a safari.

The camp is located near the Sante River, and the grassy lawn in front of the camp offers an incredible view of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The river has formed a dam in front of the lodge, which attracts countless birds, while hippopotamuses and crocodiles frolic in the water (at night, they move to the lawn in front of the lodge).

The 25 tents are set up as a chain with the restaurant as the natural midway point. This means that all the tents offer an incredible view of the dam and the hippos, as well as the mountain in neighbouring Tanzania.

Each tent features a charming interior with a solid floor, plenty of space for your suitcase, a small desk, and your own bathroom. Outside the tent, you have access to a porch with chairs, which you can use to enjoy this beautiful view. The walls are made from canvas and the windows feature mosquito netting, so you can enjoy all comforts while hearing nature just outside.

Please note that the tents are suitable for up to three occupants, maximum.
