For those for whom the wildlife safari experience is more important than the accommodation, and who are prepared to sleep in small tents in sleeping bags on a mattress on the floor with an element of roughing it, this gives an opportunity for an exceptional and exclusive wildlife experience with high quality guiding but at a fraction of the price.
The mobile camp is based in the exclusive 15,000 acre Selenkay Conservancy, which is 10 miles north of the Amboseli National Park.
Activities include game drives in specially designed open-sided 4x4 Land Rovers (seating just 6 people per vehicle), both on the Conservancy and in the Amboseli National Park. Bush walks and night drives can also be enjoyed on the Conservancy. The stunning Mount Kilimanjaro can be viewed on a clear day, making a beautiful backdrop to any photographs.
Guests have the opportunity to see a wide variety of wildlife, including elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, buffalo, striped hyena, jackal, African wild cat, porcupine, Thompson's and Grant's gazelles, gerenuk, impala, oryx, eland, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, warthog, and vervet monkeys. Birdlife is prolific, especially birds of prey.
The tents are small canvas dome tents, designed for 2 persons. Guests need to bring their own sleeping bag and a towel, and you sleep on comfortable mattresses on the tent floor. Each tent has its own private bathroom in a cubicle located immediately behind the tent with flush toilet, wash basin and safari shower. There are just 9 tents in total, making this a very intimate safari experience for the adventurous safari goer.
The camp is hosted by your safari guide, who is a professionally qualified guide with KPSGA certification. There are also service staff who do all the work associated with camping, such as washing up, heating water for showers, cooking and serving the food, and an experienced safari cook prepares the daily meals. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the dining tent and picnic lunches are provided for full day safaris into the Amboseli National Park.
Mineral water is provided daily at the camp and on safari drives and walks. Drinks other than mineral water are not included in the price but beer, wine and sodas are available at reasonable prices and guests may bring their own drinks if they wish.
