Day 1

This morning we depart Nairobi and proceed north, driving through lush tea and
coffee estates to Sweetwaters Tented Camp. Sweetwaters land, the Ol Pejeta
Conservancy and its sumptuous ranch were once the private domain of famed
multi-millionaire, Adnan Kashoggi.
We visit the Chimpanzee Sanctuary, a charming haven established by the Jane
Goodall Institute to provide sanctuary to orphaned chimps, and the specially
protected and fenced refuge of black rhino with its stunning forty specimens! In
fact Sweetwaters boasts excellent game viewing with the highest ratio of game to
area of any park or reserve in Kenya.
Moreover, the camp has its own private waterhole and salt lick so we’ll be
guaranteed unprecedented close encounters. Whether its day or night game
drives, camel trekking, lion tracking, al fresco dining or relaxing by pool,
Sweetwaters is bound to delight.
