This was an amazing experience. We were in the middle of "nowhere" but had a luxurious experience. Tent 4 was the best! On the bend of the river and we once counted at least 50 hippos in the river below. I pinched myself as I...More

敲黑板!这不是翻译!哈哈! 还是要给酒店的florence致歉,距离我们离开肯尼亚已经过去将近四个月了,说好的写一下对酒店的点评,一直拖到了现在! 这家camp怎么来形容呢?马赛马拉的天堂!是的我没有去过马拉的其他帐篷酒店,但我敢自信的说,这绝对是算是整个保护区排名前三的! 我们之前在booking上完成预订,当时预订的其实是intrepids camp。过后酒店员工邮件我,说给我们升级了私人帐篷酒店,我心想什么鬼,到底有哪些升级啊! 结果在酒店的这四天,我彻底震撼到了,帐篷下面就是河马成群,帐篷的豪华和私密程度超乎想象,耳边永远是动听的鸟类协奏曲,如果这不是身处马拉的最佳体验,还有什么是呢? 再说说餐饮,每天三餐永远不重样,从前餐到甜点,水平完全堪比伦敦纽约的知名餐厅,每天吃饭前,我都哼着小曲,期待美食,好丢脸… 再来是safari,我们的司机selos,绝对是有史以来最耐心的司机,面对两个小asian每天的十万个为什么,总是不厌其烦的向我们解释发生在眼前的草原万象,而selos总是能比其他人更快到达有精彩动物景象的地方,比如成群的狮子,刚抓到猎物的豹子,还有角马过河,不胜枚举!每天的safari,累并满足,大自然的震撼永远留在记忆的最深处! 最后,是关于这家酒店的人。装修环境是硬件,而服务和人是软件。关于服务和我永远难忘的可爱的人,很难在一篇点评中就讲清楚,只能说,在去过所有国家所有酒店当中,这家酒店的服务和员工是最棒的,没有之一! 如果你想去肯尼亚度过一个探索大自然的假期,这家帐篷酒店,会让你终生难忘!墙裂推荐! 写完感觉好浮夸!但时隔四个月,每当回忆起来,都是激动万分,难以忘记在这家酒店的美好! Florence, Erick and selos , I'll come back for sure, hope to see you soon!More
