Sweetwaters Tented Camp

This beautiful tented camp lies in the heart of the private, 24,000-acre, Sweetwaters Game Reserve. Built in the early 70's, the main building was originally the residence of billionaire Adnan Kashoggi's ranch manager. The 30 luxuriously appointed en-suite tents have magnificent views across the plains to the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya.

 

Located in typical savannah grasslands, punctuated by the 'whistling thorn' shrubs and acacia trees, Sweetwaters really is an oasis. It offers guests the indulgence of a swimming pool, some of the finest tented accommodation in Kenya and personalised service and attention.

 

At Sweetwaters there is plenty to see. Giraffe, zebra, eland, Oryx, waterbuck, Grant's gazelle, Thompson's gazelle, elephant, buffalo, cheetah, lion, silver-backed jackals, ostrich, hartebeest, baboon and rhino. There are also several hundred-bird species to be observed. A resident naturalist will help you with your identification.

 

The private game reserve is also home to the only chimpanzee sanctuary in Kenya. Most of the chimps came from the Jane Goodall Institute in Burundi and the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary now cares for them and is a non-profit making venture. Most of the chimps were rescued from the most appalling conditions and it is truly heart-warming to see them now living in the riverine forest and savannah grasslands at Sweetwaters.
