The park has excellent game viewing opportunities which include Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Elephant, Black and White Rhino’s, Eland, Gerenuk, Beisa Oryx, Grant’s Gazelle, Grevy’s Zebra, Lesser Kudu and Reticulated Giraffe aswell as over 280 species of birds. The camp will be hosted by Adrian Allen.
The camp can be accessed by scheduled flights from and to Nairobi, or by private air charters. It is a 5 hour drive from Nairobi.

In addition, there is 24 hour solar lighting in the tents, whilst the rest of the camp is lit by traditional tilley lamps. Informal dining is hosted in the mess tent or around the stunning swimming pool. There is also a spacious living room with comfortable sofas, a writing table and fully stocked bar.
