Basecamp Dorobo Fly Camp review

Whilst based at Eagles View I stayed two days and nights at Dorobo, as it happened largely on my own.

What an experience.!I was treated like a visiting prince, by the most warm and lovely group of Masai staff. They all, at different times, came to chat and talk excitedly about anything and everything. I loved it and them.

The tent might not be everyone's luxury cup of tea but I wholly recommend it. The bed was really comfortable; there was the welcome of a fur covered hot water bottle; the wash and the shave at dawn from a canvas basin, without a mirror, was an exercise in concentration and great care; the loo and shower were interesting but perfectly adequate a few yards away.

The walking drives were an unforgettable experience, with the support of a spear carrying Masai, a hunter from another tribe with bow and arrows and a splendid chap in polished army boots, camouflage jacket and hat, with a serious expression, and armed with an automatic, and perhaps elderly rifle, and with lovely Lorna from Eagles View as my knowledgeable guide.

It was a treat, returning in the dark, tracking a moving herd of maybe fifteen elephant of all ages and following them back to the valley where the camp was. Then a quick wash and join the boys and Lorna around the camp fire with a beer and the sound of elephant as they passed in the dark a short distance away. Gloucester was a long way away! A privilege to be there with these exceptional and happy people.

Combining a few days at Base Camp Eagles View with two days and nights at Dorobo was for me simply perfect. I would recommend it to everyone.

I shall certainly return for more!
