The adventure camp will operate from 01st July 2014 to the 31st October 2014, and 16th Dec 2014 to the 31st March 2015 with daily departures from Nairobi, using a charter flight to the Selenkay camp and back to Wilson to flying into Mara and back.

•Accommodation is in small 2-man dome tents. It is “real camping” and all guests need to bring their own sleeping bag as well as a towel.

•Each of the 9 tents has its own flush toilet and safari shower located behind the tent.

•All meals are prepared by the camp cook. Mineral water is provided in camp and on game drives but guests need to buy their own drinks which will be on sale at the Camps.

•The big attraction is being in small campsites in exclusive wildlife conservancies with activity-packed itineraries and excellent guides and with game drives in open-sided 4x4 safari vehicles, not vans.

•This camping safari has been designed to offer the same high quality wildlife safari experience provided by the top-end safari camps, with 4x4 game viewing escorted by top class guides and in exclusive wildlife conservancies away from the tourist minibuses, but at a hugely reduced price by staying in small basic adventure camps, “real camping” instead of the luxury accommodation of the expensive up-market tented lodges.

•The Gamewatchers Adventure Camps are sited in private conservancies with a wealth of wildlife and where you can go on walks with Maasai guides and take night drives but they are also conveniently located for easy access to Amboseli National Park and the Maasai Mara Reserve.

•Flights are included to and from the camp to give guests more time to enjoy the wilderness areas instead of being stuck on long and bumpy road journeys.

For those for whom the wildlife safari experience is more important than the accommodation, and who are prepared to sleep in small tents in sleeping bags on a mattress on the floor with an element of “roughing it”, this gives an opportunity for an exceptional and exclusive wildlife experience with high quality guiding but at a fraction of the price.
*** Note: This is “Adventure Camping” with accommodation in small 2-man dome tents and is basic camping without all the facilities of the tented lodges or luxury permanent camps. It is “real camping” and all guests who book the Adventure 4x4 Safari need to bring their own sleeping bag as well as a towel. High Density Mattresses are provided inside the dome tent. All meals are prepared by the camp cook. Mineral water is provided in camp and on game drives but guests need to buy their own drinks which will be on sale at Camps. The big attraction is being in small campsites in exclusive wildlife conservancies with activity packed itineraries and excellent guides and with game drives in open-sided 4x4 safari vehicles, not vans. ***
