          We have visited many good lodges and camps in Kenya but this was definitely the best. Superb accomodation in a great location. Luxurious without being 'glossy'. Excellent food. Well organised, very helpful and charming people. A great experience

          We are trying to decide between this camp and Lewa Wilderness. You said this was the best of the 3 places you stayed - what were the other 2? Also - are the horse/camel rides included in the lodging price? Thanks, Jan
