Sweetwaters Tented Camp

A sheltered oasis, clustered around a water hole, and standing within the seclusion of its own private reserve, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Sweetwaters Tented Camp offers a charming blend of under-canvas ambiance and uncompromising luxury. Boasting a higher wildlife-to-area ratio than any of Kenya’s national parks, the camp offers unprecedented opportunities for wildlife watching, either by guided walks, camel treks, or by day and night game drives, while likely sightings include all the members of ‘The Big Five’ (elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and leopard).
