Hidden on a sleepy bend of the Talek River, in the midst of the Masai Mara’s endless savannah, this exclusive Tented Camp is the perfect place to start your safari. The spectacular location on the river guarantees an abundance of wildlife viewing without even leaving the camp: lions, buffalos, wildebeest, elephants and even leopard regularly come to drink! All tents are pitched along the banks of the Talek, only a few feet from the river and sit on their own elevated wooden platform, offering privileged views.
