The Gamewatchers Mobile Camp in the Ol Kinyei Conservancy has been designed to offer the same high quality wildlife safari experience provided by the top-end safari camps, with 4x4 game viewing escorted by top class guides and in exclusive wildlife conservancies away from the tourist minibuses - but at a hugely reduced price.
Guests stay in small basic mobile camps, so it is 'real camping' - and for those who want some adventure this is an ideal safari experience.
Ol Kinyei is a beautiful wilderness area located less than 18 km from the Masai Mara Reserve boundary, and is home to open savannah plains, riverine forests, springs, streams and rivers, rolling hills and on top of this, it offers spectacular views across the Mara.
The Conservancy belongs to the Masai community who set aside the area as a sanctuary for wildlife. The conservancy is home to a wide variety of the wildlife species for which the Mara is famous, including a large resident pride of lions. Activities include day and night game drives in the Conservancy and in the Masai Mara Reserve, and are conducted in open-sided 4x4 Land Rover safari vehicles seating just 6 people. Your driver-guide is a wildlife expert and certified by the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association. Bush walks in the Conservancy are also offered.
The tents are Coleman Sundome tents, designed for 2 people. Guests sleep in sleeping bags (you are required to bring your own) on a comfortable mattress on the floor, so there is a certain element of roughing it. However, each tent has its own private bathroom in a cubicle located behind the tent with flush toilet, wash basin and safari shower.
At each safari camp site there are service staff who do all the work associated with camping, like washing up, heating water for showers, cleaning thetents and bathrooms, doing the cooking and serving the food. An experienced safari cook is at the camp to prepare the daily meals. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the dining tent and picnic lunches are provided for full day safaris into the Mara Reserve.
