Located on the plains of Mount Kenya, Sweetwaters Tented Camp is a sheltered oasis, clustered around a water hole and set in the pristine calm of the private Ol Pejeta Conservancy. It offers a charming blend of under-canvas ambiance and safari luxury.
The camp features 39 luxury tents, each with its own private veranda overlooking the water hole. Each tent is fitted with its own en-suite bathroom (hot and cold running water), king-sized double bed or twin bed, 24 hour electricity, mineral water and toiletries, bathrobe and slippers, safe, hairdryer, and mosquito nets. The tents are have a canvas exterior with solid flooring and thatched roofing. 14 of the tents are on raised platforms with private balconies. The others have private verandas, all with safari chairs and tables. Extra beds and cots can also be provided.
The Rhino Restaurant is housed in the former manager's house of this once colonial farm, and offers both regional and international cuisine. Breakfast and lunch are presented in buffet-style. Vegetarian options are always available. The majority of the meat, fruits, vegetables, and dairy products come from the communities that surround the reserve.
Also within this house is the Kashoggi Bar and lounge which boasts a large wood fireplace. The Waterhole Bar, built in the style of a game-viewing hide, overlooks the waterhole and offers unrivalled wildlife-watching. The wine list offers a broad selection of old and new-world wines, local and imported beers, and spirits. A wide range of soft drinks and freshly-made local fruit juices as well as coffee and tea are also offered here.
