Wonderful wilderness

Very kind and amazing team of Maasai warriors running this camp, including superb guide Daniel and his spotter Dixon, alongside William "the jumping chef"!

Wonderful introduction to Maasai culture and safari

Loved Selenkay and the staff

We had no idea what to expect, but the minute we saw the staff lined up to meet us upon arrival, we knew we were in for something special. The tents were minimal but very comfortable. (They could get very hot during the day due to lack of shade, but cooled down at night.) The bathrooms were fine and the showers quick, but hot. Just enough to get the dust off! We did have a problem with water the last day, but it wasn't a big issue. You have to realize where you are and the effort it takes just to get water to the camp.

Meals were delicious - a nice variety, excellent soups, fresh vegetables and fruit. They did a fantastic job providing gluten-free for one of our group. We appreciated the coffee and tea and snacks on our game drives.

It was the staff that made this camp really special. Our time around the campfire at night was enlightening. They were willing to answer so many questions and we appreciated them wanting to ask us some too! Our guides Daniel and Jackson were knowledgeable but more importantly fun. They were patient when waiting for us to take lot of pictures and made sure we had the best views. We had the reputation as the "lucky Americans" around the camp because of what we were able to see, but it was all because of them.

We also really enjoyed the fellow guests - all interesting, well-traveled and fun. Great dinners discussing our day, our other trips, our homes. We were with several at two camps, so it was nice to see them twice.

Appreciated the charging stations in the main tent area. We were able to keep all batteries charged. The chargers in the safari vehicle we had did not work, but it was not a problem.

Perfect start

We were so pleased we started our safari at the Selenkay Adventure Camp. The camp itself is brilliantly run by Daniel and his team. There is a great atmosphere in the camp and the experience around the campfire here was the best of our whole three week trip.
The tents are comfortable and the toilets spotless. The outside shower is always a wonderful experience and they deliver hot water in a lovely retro enamel jug when they wake you too. Strangely one of my favourite things - washing my hands and face in the early morning light outside the tent before going off on the game drive.

We met some lovely guest and had a great laugh. Daniel's team were wonderful - from the cook, Titus to our guide, who we loved, Amos and our great driver.

The lion sightings are fantastic and the walk with the Masai guides is a joy. We had only just left the airstrip when we saw a male lion and lioness running through the bush, then were able to watch them meet the rest of the pride.
We were a little doubtful about the visit to the Masai village but in actual fact it turned out to be a hugely enjoyable event in which we learn a lot. Being with Daniel and his team gave us a real taste of the Masai traditions and culture in a way none of the other camps quite did which is why it really was the perfect start to the trip.
We were sorry to leave and would definitely return to a similar camp again.

Selenkay Adventure Camp review

We arrived at camp just as food poisoning hit.
The management and staff at the camp were very kind and helpful, and even moved us to another camp with indoor bathroom facilities.

Although we did not get a chance to stay at the Adventure Camp, it appeared to be a fine spot where one could enjoy their stay and be close to nature.
