The contact with the Masai. The service of the Masai in the camps. They were always smiling and joking amongst themselves.Wilson was an excellent guide in Selenkay and we felt lucky to have him.

Oi-kenyai was a bit nicer in terms of the dining area, was kept cleaner. Tents a bit too close though so there was a lot of snoring! Selenkay camping area was more spacious. Great dining under the stars at Selenkay. would be nice to have hammocks in Selenkay like Oi-Kinyei had

I was disappointed as at Oi-Kinyei they didn't really cater to my vegan diet as much as I would have liked and it caused a bit of awkwardness. To give them credit Jackson ordered soya milk but that didn't arrive until 1/2 way through the 3 days stay.He did also let Selenkay know so they had soya milk. I had thought I should reiterate the vegan thing before departure.  We did go for a great night drive and watched the lion and lioness interact on our last night.TRIBES REPLY: We're very sorry that your vegan diet was not picked up at first.  The message had been sent to the camp.  This has now been taken up with the executive chef for the camp, and we are confident that the camp's vegan offerings will now be much better and taken good note of for future clients.
