Spend your days on morning and afternoon game drives in custom-designed 4×4 safari vehicles followed by time at leisure at the camp’s enticing infinity pool. Or sit back and witness the mega herds of wildebeest make their way across the Sand River from the comfort of your luxury tent. You will also have the opportunity to visit the local village to witness the traditions of the Maasai people, and a hot air balloon safari can be pre-booked on request.

Located on the western edge of Amboseli, in a private conservancy, this camp guarantees absolute privacy with very few safari vehicles competing for the wildlife action.
