The camp is owned by Sun World Safaris in Kenya, a good safari company. Great food at the camp. Individual tents with privacy, except for the Maasai warriors who stand guard during the night. Sometimes, they surprised me by stepping out from behind trees, unexpectedly. They really keep a eye on the guests for safety. Lots of hippos out at...
