One of the most stunning features is the “The Private Hippo Pool” where one can enjoy a cool drink, overlooking Hippos basking in the sun uninterrupted & playing in the river. The "Little Children's Manyatta" caters well for younger visitors with an interesting "adventure programme" for children of all ages.

The game viewing area is designed for 4 wheel drive vehicles and not suitable for Safari Minibuses which offers more privacy during game drives too. Special emphasis is paid to teaching local Maasai Women how to hand make jewellery out of recycled plastic bottles.
