This camp started as the owners' home in 2006. It's about 90 minutes from the original camp, on the banks of the Njageteck River in the private Olare Orok Conservancy. There are natural springs nearby which ensure a good supply of wildlife including a resident pride of lions. With seven tents this is a small camp with a laid-back atmosphere. Tents are classic safari style, large with canvas walls and mesh windows. The fronts can be opened, leading onto the veranda and allowing you to enjoy views of the bush from your own bed. There are comfy chairs and lots of storage space. Each tent has a bathroom and an shower open to the sky. Rugs and throws add splashes of colour.
The communal tent has a large dining table where sociable breakfasts and lunches are served, as well as a collection of plush sofas and chairs, ideal for lazing between game drives and sipping a chilled beer or glass of wine. Sundowner drinks are taken around the camp fire and dinner is often enjoyed by lamplight under the starry skies.
You'll be offered day and night game drives, nature and bird watching walks, Maasai village visits, river tubing in the wet season and, at additional cost, scenic plane flights and balloon rides. These last will provide some very special memories and should be booked in advance.
