Inspired by the traditional Maasai bomas, these unique suites boast spacious, light interiors, with perspex fronts revealing panoramic views of the sweeping Serengeti. King sized beds face out onto expansive wooden decking, while a crackling woodburning stove will keep you warm and cosy throughout the night. The highest property in the area, the camp’s vantage point enables you to watch the sun both rise and set on your action-packed days.
Adventure is quite literally on your doorstep with an array of game walks and mountain hikes available straight from the camp. Zebras, elephants and leopards roam the volcanic slopes, while prolific birdlife and butterflies fill the air. Early morning drives across the magical plains will show you the animals at their most active, giving you time to relax with a picnic under the shade of a tree, or take an afternoon siesta from the hottest part of the day. Maasai culture surrounds this camp; interact with the local people as they share their knowledge and stories, giving you unique insight into their world-famous culture.
