Sweetwaters Tented Camp, Ol Pejeta Conservancy
A sheltered oasis, clustered around a water hole and set in the pristine calm of the private Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Sweetwaters Tented Camp offers a charming blend of under-canvas ambience and safari luxury. Located on the plains of Mount Kenya, the camp features thirty-nine luxury tents, each with its own private veranda, with safari chairs and tables, overlooking the water hole. Each tent is fully equipped with ensuite bathroom, canvas interiors and delightful thatched roofs. Electricity is provided 24 hours using a generator.
The central Rhino Restaurant is housed in the former manager's house of this old colonial farm, and offers both regional and international cuisine. A full cooked and continental breakfast service is offered, and lunch is served buffet style with meat, poultry, fish and vegetarian options. The table d'hôte dinner menus feature a fresh salad buffet, soup, entrée, pudding, cheeses and tea or coffee. Wherever possible, the fresh produce is sourced from local communities.
Also within the house is the Kashoggi Bar and Lounge, which centres on a blazing log fire. The Waterhole Bar, built in the style of a game-viewing hide, overlooks the waterhole and offers unrivalled wildlife-watching. The bar offers fine wines, local and imported beers and premium spirits. Teas, coffees and a range of fresh juices are also served.
Activities at Sweetwaters Tented Camp include game drives (day and night), lion tracking in the conservancy, excursions to the chimpanzee sanctuary, the conservancy's education centre and local village, camel riding and ornithological walks. For a relaxing treat at the end of a long day, try swimming, sunbathing or a treatment at the Maisha Spa.
