If you come as a volunteer, you get the special immersion and cultural experience helping the Masai community ( medical or schools ) or working alongside them ( construction). If you come just for vacation, they still provide unique opportunities to learn about the Masai tribe and give an opportunity to participate...

The staff is unfailingly polite and helpful. The safari drivers are wonderful guides and extremely knowledgeable and friendly. You will...

Was here for the Great Migration August 2014. The Mara reserve is just 10 mins away. They have good accommodation, all of them are tents, but not to worry as they are well equipped with modern facilities. The bedding is so cosy you almost go off to sleep the minute you slide in. The restaurant is a 2 min walk...
