Sweetwaters Tented Camp lies in the heart of the privately owned 22,000 acre Sweetwaters Game Reserve enjoying magnificent views across the bush to the snow-capped peaks of Mt. Kenya. Overlooking a floodlit waterhole, the camp offers visitors an unforgettable opportunity to watch and photograph game in its natural habitat.

Accommodation is provided in luxuriously appointed tents set under thatch roofs, with ensuite facilities and private verandas. Each tent overlooks the waterhole. The main building houses the dining room, a bar and a reception.

At weekends dinner is often served under the stars. Game drive safaris, walking safaris, camel safaris and night game drives ensure there is always plenty to do. With its superb accommodations, personal service, first class cuisine and outstanding array of activities, Sweetwaters is in a class of its own.

Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary A 200-acre Chimpanzee sanctuary has been set up at Sweetwaters Game Reserve, a 15-minute drive from Sweetwaters Tented Camp. A visit to this Sanctuary and the 30-minute boat ride (subject to fine weather) on the river among the chimps is a must… The aim of the project, initiated by Lonrho East Africa, Kenya Wildlife Services and the Jane Goodall Institute, was to set up a colony where chimps could be introduced, rehabilitated and taught to fend for themselves in an area similar to their natural living conditions. Priority is given to orphaned and abused chimps. The Sanctuary currently has 26 chimps, including two babies born in the Sanctuary. There is also a new Visitor’s Information Centre at Morani’s Boma, which is a must for all visiting clients staying both at Sweetwaters Tented Camp and Ol Pejeta House.
