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 can bring their own drinks or buy drinks which will be on sale at the Camps.

It’s Exclusive:

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 4×4 safari vehicles, not vans.

A night in the bush
Under African skies

This camping safari has been designed to offer the same high quality wildlife safari experience provided by the top-end safari camps, with 4×4 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 to and from Nairobi are included

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.

It’s all about the wildlife

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.

Prices:

2013 – from $1,765 / £1,150 per person sharing

2014 – from $1,860 / £1,200 per person sharing

Price Includes

return flights Nairobi-Selenkay-Nairobi, return flights Nairobi-Mara-Nairobi, 6 nights in the Gamewatchers Mobile Camps with all meals and mineral water, all game drives in 4×4 safari vehicle with experienced driver-guide, all conservancy and park fees.

Price excludes

international flights, Visa, travel insurance, all drinks other than mineral water – drinks can be bought at camps, any tips or gratuities and any items of a personal nature.
