Back in the bush

Low frequency rumbles from elephants was occasionally replaced by the sound of breaking branches. A herd of elephants was just 50 meters behind my tent – engaged in knocking over trees

At that point I realized that I was finally on safari after almost 10 years away from my favorite continent – and what a start!

The small camp was named after the Dorobo’s, a type of expelled Maasai who live from hunting game. That way of living was unusual among the Maasai tribe who are famous for their pastoralist lifestyle.

Except for 6 dome-tents with room for 2 field beds and a drawer (of course you need that – safari camping is more than just camping). Each tent has a small toilette tent with nicely carved wooden toilette seat, and perhaps the best bathroom view in the world: the savanna bush-land.

Note the elephants just left of the blue-green toilet tent
Meals in Dorobo Bush camp was exquisite. The chef magically served the most fantastic meals from the cooking tent. The camps butler – who most appropriately was named Charles – was serving meals in the mess-tent
Every morning I had the choice to take my meal in front of the mess-tent under the blue African sky.
