A sheltered oasis, clustered around a waterhole and set in the pristine calm of its own private reserve, Sweetwaters Tented Camp is in a class of its own.

Abounding with wildlife, unfettered by the more rigorous strictures of the Kenyan National Parks and designed to offer a charming blend of under canvas ambiance and uncompromising luxury, it has long been the preferred retreat of wilderness and safari lovers alike. Ol Pejeta being one of the few private game sanctuaries in Kenya, Sweetwaters excels in the provision of privileged seclusion and private game viewing. 

Thanks to its private status it also allows such unforgettable pleasures as night game drives, guided bush walks and both horse or camel riding across its game-teaming plains. Accommodation is provided in 39 luxuriously appointed tents (13 doubles, 26 twins). Each tent has a thatched roof, an ensuite bathroom and its own verandah with views over the waterhole. Full room service is provided.

The camp prides itself on the quality of its cuisine offering a 5-course "table d’hôte" dining experience every night, and a selection of African, Asian, and international dishes. The "Rhino Restaurant" is accommodated amidst the quaint charm of the main house, which was once the home of the Ranch Manager. Here open windows look out over stunning views and the traditional décor features soft sofas, traditional prints and splendid stone-built fireplaces.

Al fresco dining. The camp also offers a memorable selection of safari luncheons, bush dinners, campfire suppers and "sundowners" safari cocktails.
