Wildlife Camps are small eco-friendly camps in private campsites which move with the seasonal migrations of wildlife movements.
These camps have a low impact on the environment and leave no permanent footprint on the land. There is no fixed plumbing or electricity. They are decorated with authentic East African fabrics and fittings and materials from local craftsmen. There is solar powered lighting in most camps and the bathrooms have water saving, self-contained toilets and safari-style showers.
The staff in the camps are highly trained, professional and local people, happy to provide you with a friendly service. Each day the chefs produce gourmet meals from fresh local ingredients.
The tented rooms are large and comfortable with cosy beds of deluxe linen. En-suite showers and toilets provide modern comforts in a bush environment.

"The tent was very comfortable and the bucket shower very efficient. In the morning, a jug of hot water was brought with the cry of 'Jambo, jambo' and a comment on the wild animals passing by. We could see elephant, giraffe or zebra before we even got out of bed! Lovely lounge tents and eating tents too, with staff that made sure we were well looked after."
