Mainly located in the Olderkesi Conservancy, which is part of the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem and not far from the 1920s Camp, guests can enjoy the thrill and adventure of staying in the fly camp.  Activities include walks with Maasai guides, day and night drives and E-bikes rides – all escorted by top class guides. With just 8 tents, this is a small and simple camp that has all the essential elements for a memorable safari experience.

Each tent has its own private bathroom in a cubicle located behind the tent with a wash basin, hot safari shower and long drop toilet. An experienced safari cook is at the camp to prepare the daily meals, along with a support crew to look after all guest needs. The camp is hosted by the safari guide and the tents are for 2 persons or can fit one child with 2 adults, all in single beds.
