This intimate camp is within a 15,000 acre private game reserve within a larger area owned by the Kisonko clan of the Maasai people. The Selenkay Conservation Area is home to a variety of game, besides the sought after lion, cheetah and elephant. Striped hyena and smaller cats such as civets and the African wildcat can also be spotted (excuse the pun) in this superb habitat.
With only nine basic but spacious tents, the camp feels much like a traditional hunting bush camp but with the comfort of a lodge, with proper beds and flush toilets. Sleeping under canvas gives the impression of being in the wild, and the sounds of the bush do penetrate the walls and lull you into peaceful slumber. Much of the focus here is on the community that owns the land, and the camp offers you the chance to walk into the bush with your own Maasai warrior to discover their homes in the villages nearby. Beyond the fascinating lifestyle of these ancient people, you will have the chance to experience some truly magnificent game.
The location of the camp is ideal for drives into the wider Amboseli National Park which does allow for an exciting picnic lunch. The privacy of the conservancy however, is an extra bonus and you can get to know your guide and tracker as you set off on your night drive through the bush on the hunt for the elusive nocturnal creatures of East Africa.
