Sweetwaters Tented Camp lies in the heart of the Ol Pejeta Ranch. Accommodations include 39 luxuriously appointed en suite tents with views across the plains, to the snow -capped peaks of Mount Kenya. Located in typical savannah grasslands, punctuated by the 'whistling thorn' shrubs and acacia trees, Sweetwaters really is an oasis.
The camp offers guests a swimming po ol, personalized service and attention to detail. With giraffe, zebra, eland, oryx, waterbuck, Grant's gazelle, Thompson's gazelle, elephant, buffalo, cheetah, lion, silver - backed jackals, ostrich, hartebeest, baboon and rhino on your doorstep, plus chimpa nzees, be prepared tobe impressed. There are also several hundred bird species to be observed. Activities include day and night game drives, escorted walks, and game viewing from the platform.
Our favorite camp was Sweetwaters. It was exactly what we expected from safari. We absolutely enjoyed having our morning/evening drinks while looking out at the watering hole and viewing all the wonderful animals so up close and personal!
Camp Elmenteita was beautiful also. We really enjoyed the Massai Mara. Every safari was unique and amazing and we saw everything except for the leopard, which we have come to realize is most likely due to the fact that the leopard is indeed just a safari fairytale and is not real LOL!! We had 2 bush breakfasts which was so surreal and our balloon ride over Massai Mara was exceptional. It was also mating season at its best! Not only did we see the Right whales mating but we were also lucky enough to view lions mating 50ft from our vehicle. It was so extraordinary and a once in a lifetime opportunity
Next we headed to Egypt. Our guide Mohammad was great and spoke great English. He also gave us many options of things to add on and explained the history of Egypt as if he was a professor of Egyptian History. The cruise was lovely and we really enjoyed coming back in the afternoon and spending hours at the pool.Read More
