Frequently Asked Questions
About Your Trip
Yes, hot showers are provided every evening in your tents. They are bucket showers that are topped up with hot water. Use the water sparingly so you don't run out!

Technically the vehicles are designed for photographers, one is closed sided but the windows are taken out and this will not use all the seats, the others are open sided. All have roof hatches. Bean bags are supplied and if you do not have an IS or VR lens, you might want to get them. You should be looking at minimum 400mm zoom/telephoto capability. Polariser warm ups are good for landscapes and hard drives/memory sticks essential.
The days out are not endurance tests but a full day out on the plains can be quite tiring. They also will involve patience, as a hungry cheetah will often wait many hours before making her move!
Meal times are a delight under the stars in the evening or in the dining tent in bad weather. The camp often has a pride of lion’s close-by and their call accompanied by the cackle of the hyena is an occasional night time companion. The property is very relaxing for those hours in the middle of the day (when you are there) and the haute cuisine and hot showers are a big bonus, but these luxurious trappings sometimes belie the fact that the camp is right in the heart of the most prolific savannah on earth and this should be respected.

Lightweight clothing for the day time, as the sun can be quite strong. Bring warmer layers for the cooler evenings and early mornings, when temperatures can drop surprisingly due to the altitude a lot of Kenya sits at.

Just taking Sterling cash will be fine, and there is no need to change in US dollars. The local currency is the Kenyan Schilling, and you will be changing your money into this and spending with schillings only. Some services will accept dollars as payment, but it is not legal tender. It is best to change money at the airport in Nairobi and ATM machines are availabile there as well. Credit Cards are accepted at most points on the trips if you get stuck as well!

Yes, for British passport holders it is quite straightforward. The cost is $50. Other nationalities should check with the nearest embassy.
