"What a wonderful experience! A Masai guide driver collected us from the airfield and it was amazing to witness herds of Wildebeest intermixed with Zebras, it was quite beyond belief. We arrived at the camp and were greeted by such friendly staff with warm eucalyptus cloths to freshen our hands and faces. The open lodge and deck were beautiful and inspiring. The food was totally delicious and the morning walk was a bucket list experience beyond description. There is drinking water in the rooms, a full bar in the open lodge and service to match the best of London hotels. The game drives were filled with awesomeness. Naboisho is truly outstanding."
