Having left Kenya over 40 years ago, I was nervous returning to a place which held such wonderful memories. But I needn't have worried at Epiya Chapeyu – I had returned the Kenya of my dreams – the colour, heat, large skies and the earth....More

Accommodation is simple, yet clean. The meals were extremely tasty! The entertainment was provided by a "friendly" elephant who meandered through camp at various times through the day. Safari lounge chairs are set up by rivers edge - no better place to enjoy a cold...More

We just loved this camp. The children loved Mario the elephant who walked through the camp morning and evening. Crocodiles swam in the river whilst hippos basked on the rocks. The tents were super and 2 huge lizards watched us as we washed. The food...More

The accommodation at this camp is nothing special but what has caused us to return five times is the food: in a completely different league from the normal safari camp steam-table buffets. From tiny pre-dinner pizzas to flaming crepes for dessert, from home-made bread to...More
