This is a great conservancy to visit in Kenya, it is based in a city called Nanyuki. it's different to others as it is home to rescued chimpanzees and also the last 2 remaining northern white rhino's, which have round the clock protection. The standard tents at sweet waters camp, have great views over a watering hole, where you get an abundance of wildlife. However some things you should be aware of if choosing to stay here - the park fees are not included in the accommodation price and are quite expensive compared to some other conservancies, so check that out. Also the activities such as 'behind the scenes with the chimps' and meeting the last 2 remaining northern white rhino's, both must dos, are not booked through the accommodation, we were given a number to call which did not work and eventually staff helped out, but to avoid this annoyance go online beforehand and email staff at sweetwaters and make sure they explain how to book. It was not clear to us. That aside, this is great place to visit and can be very educational if you choose to do the extra activities outside of the usual game drives.
