The camp is sited in a shady setting in a grove of Acacia trees within the Ol Kinyei Conservancy, in Masai Mara, an exclusive 17500 acre wilderness set aside as a wildlife sanctuary with a wide variety of species including all the big cats.The area has open plains, forests, rivers and stunning views.

The Gamewatchers Adventure Camp offers the same high quality wildlife safari experience provided by the top-end safari camps, with game viewing in 4x4 safari vehicles escorted by top class Maasai guides and spotters in an exclusive wildlife conservancy in the Mara far away from the tourist minibuses. This is at a hugely reduced price, achieved by staying in a more basic adventure camp, which is more like “real camping” instead of the luxury accommodation of the expensive up-market tented lodges.

The camp can be reached from Nairobi by daily scheduled light aircraft flights from Wilson Airport Nairobi to the nearby Naboisho Ol Seki airstrip. While at camp all safari transport for game drives is in shared 4x4 open-sided safari vehicle with expert guide.

The camp service staff do all the work associated with camping, like washing up, heating water for showers, doing the cooking, serving the food and the daily house-keeping of cleaning the tents and bathrooms.
  • An experienced safari cook at the camp prepares the daily meals. Food is of a high quality and all meals are included in the price. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the dining tent and picnic lunches are provided for full day safaris into the Mara Reserve.

  • Game drives (shared) are taken to explore the conservancy in the camp's four-wheel-drive customised safari vehicles taking a maximum of 6 passengers.
