From the host Angel, and her assistant Future, to the entire staff including the chef Anthony who I wanted to take home because his food was the best ever. This camp screams hospitality, fabulous view and tremendous staff. Love, Love this camp.
We stayed for 2 nights at the Dunia Camp in February and I would highly recommend it for great hospitality, environmentally friendly practices (like personal reusable water bottles instead of plastic), great food and a variety of wildlife, including baboons, lions in trees and if...More

We did encounter tsetse flies when we were at Dunia last May. We kept the top closed and the windows up when we drove through the ones we could see - and killed the ones that made it inside with anything handy. We were seriously so worried about getting bitten after reading reviews, then when it happened we were surprised that it was not as bad as we feared! We didn't have allergic reactions and just thought it was a mild "bite" for a second - it didn't even leave a mark on any of our group. Just take something (hat, magazine, shirt, etc.) to swat them. :-)
There were some young children at Dunia during our stay and meals were family style with everyone engaging ALL guests as much as possible. Angel is wonderful and I'm sure she will do everything possible to help your children have a good experience. Our first night involved EVERYONE singing and dancing around the table and it was great fun! The staff kept a close watch for animals and there is plenty of room in the main tent (living room/dining) and veranda for the kids to move around - plus the tents are spacious.
We always felt very safe. You'll be escorted to/from your tent in the morning and evening if it's dark (and zipped in and out). There is a radio if you feel the need to contact staff, plus an air horn. We could hear animals at night, but were never bothered or felt threatened. I can't imagine animals entering as long as everyone remembers to zip it closed.
We had a wonderful time at Namiri Plains and Dunia. I can't give you any advice with children that young, but our drivers were most helpful with planning our days and extra activities (Masai village visit, Olduvai Gorge). I hope this information is helpful. Have a wonderful time!
