Fodor's Review

This exclusive, back-to-nature tented camp is in the remote and game-abundant Selenkay Conservancy, a few miles north of Amboseli National Park. A gold eco-award winner, the camp is co-owned with the local Maasai community. Because the area is relatively new to tourism, you'll see few visitors, but lots of game including lion, leopard, cheetah, and the ubiquitous Amboseli elephants. Birdlife is prolific, with lots of raptors. Big, comfortably furnished tents are solar-powered and have en suite bathrooms with a basin, shower, and flush toilet. You'll eat hearty, home-cooked meals outside the mess tent while being serenaded by birdcalls by day and nocturnal animals by night. Game drives are taken in an open-sided safari vehicle—yours will be the only one for miles (there are only six gamedrive vehicles in the 15,000-acre conservancy). You'll visit an authentic Maasai village, take an informative walk in a dry riverbed, enjoy a picnic lunch in Amboseli itself, and at night you'll return

to your own little private spot in the African wilderness. The all-inclusive price covers round-trip road transfers, Amboseli park fees, conservancy fees, all game drives, sundowners, walks with Maasai warriors, Maasai village visits, full board, and free house wines, beer, and soft drinks. The gift shop is superb—do all of your souvenir shopping here (plus it benefits the local community).
