    Hi. I went in August & never found it busy except at dinner time. Most of the jeeps are for 4 people. During the migration it probably is busier than normal but we never found it a problem. Loved this place

    Sorry if this is a bit late. Take dollars. Shillings are accepted but it is easier with dollars. You tip at the end of your stay.
