The host and hostess, Steve and Dee were very helpful and gracious. Food was excellent.
Enjoyed watching the elephants at the waterhole in front of the camp. Really liked the tent cabin; it had a great view.
Overall the staff was very efficient and friendly.
The game drives were outstanding. Saw a big herd of elephants going towards a river."

Namiri Plains Camp
"Namiri Plains Camp review"
The communal dining was fun. Enjoyed talking with other guets. Liked the lunch right next to the tent, and out by a tree overlooking the plains. Fantastic location away from it all.
One of the highpoints was the parade of elephants going through the camp while we were eating lunch. Beautiful sunsets. Fun drive from the park entrance to the camp.
Amos really ran a well organized camp."
Lemala Kuria Hills
"Lemala Kuria Hills review"
The river crossing of the wildebeast migration was the highlight of the trip. Indescrible. We should have stayed an extra day just to relax at the bar and pool.
Food was excellent, along with the service. Overall, superlative in every way. In its own way on par with the Canadian Pacific Fairmont hotel chain in Canada. (we stayed at several) Rebecca was a great hostess. The dinner one night by the campfire was very enjoyable."

Liked the cafe he took us to, especially the specialty coffee drink.
Hoped to tour the Membi ruins, but it didn't happen.
