Our guides are local Maasai who contribute their ancestral fauna, flora and general wildlife knowledge to their minimum bronze rating certification. They love sharing and there is no question on the Amboseli ecosystem they cannot answer. You will be awed by all you will learn on a simple but exciting game drive, a foot or camel walk in our conservancy.
The guide’s camaraderie (and cell phones) means they always know where the most spectacular elephant heard, cheetahs, buffalo and birds are. There are at times unusual surprise sightings, they will know that too.
Specially built 4×4 safari vehicles, open sided or not, make for the most exciting game viewing. Morning, mid-day or even night where the wildlife is still very present but so completely different.
A late afternoon walk is an exciting way to get very close to nature. See, touch and if you are brave, sometimes taste flora. You will see the bird’s nests and hear them from up close, herds of impala and zebra run away, surprised by the encounter. The Maasai guides spot all wildlife without fail before anyone else enabling discreet approaches that are “close enough”
The camel’s slow lanky walk is to the tune of Africa. A perfect way to see the amazing landscape from a slightly different perspective while getting into the relaxed rhythm leading to a perfect sundowner in front of the plains and the Kilimanjaro.
Camels are great traveling companions. On safari, they will carry the food, water and you. They are accepted by the rest of the wildlife and enable an up close intimate relationship with your surrounding.
Settle into the calm rhythm of their pace and leave at dusk to dismount for the sundowner drink set up just for you with a nice bush fire and the Kilimanjaro reflecting the pinks and reds of the sun rapidly coming down the horizon.
We have decided to go one step further than the “Maasai dancers” coming for a few hours at the lodge to show their talents. Our VIP fly camps away from the lodge will have you sharing and trading stories with your Maasai guides around your dinner’s fire and well into the magic of the stary African night.
