Gamewatchers Adventure Camp

This unique camp is located within the exclusive 17500 acre Ol Kinyei Conservancy and gives amazing value for money. The camp is designed to offer the same high quality wildlife safari experience provided by the top-end safari camps but at a fraction of the price. Premium game drives (day and night) are in proper 4x4 safari vehicles with expert trackers and friendly qualified guides and there are educational bush walks with genuine Maasai warriors - ensuring the best possible in-depth experience of the African wilderness.

Guests benefit from exclusive use of Ol Kinyei Conservancy for exhilarating game drives plus a full day within the Masai Mara National Reserve. The conservancy forms one of the most beautiful areas of the Mara region - this is untouched wilderness, off-the-beaten-track and with few (if any) other tourist vehicles spoiling the view. The open plains, forests, streams and rivers are home to an abundance of wildlife including resident lions, cheetahs and leopards.

The camp is run with an eco-friendly and socially-responsible ethos. It has minimum impact on the environment and uses eco-friendly fuel. The conservancy is owned by the local Maasai community and the camp is operated with the objective of creating income for them through employment and the leasing of land.
