The site also has a number of hot showers and a couple of long-drop toilets (but one has a seat). You need to take your own toilet paper.
It's a really nice campsite and a peaceful place to spend your time reading, chatting and eating (see dining entry for more details on yummy food!) in between game drives. You'll usually do a morning game drive, come back for lunch and then go on another one either in the afternoon or evening. If you have more than one full day in the reserve it's good to vary the times you're out there so that you get to see the animals that are most active at different times of day.
You might be able to hear hippo or lions in the distance, but watch out for vervet monkeys and baboons; they'll steal your food as soon as look at you.

On both the safaris I did with Gametrackers the food was of a very high standard, thanks to our cooks Geshaga, Kimani and Kimani. It's mostly Western food with the one token Kenyan dish of ugaali, potatoes, beef stew and sukumawiki.
Gametrackers provide all meals and tea or coffee, but you need to take your own supply of water and snacks.
Breakfasts would be either pancakes, omelettes, or a fry-up and there was always plenty of fruit and toast. Whatever we had for lunch and tea was always delicious and ready for us on our return from the latest game drive. In fact I used to look forward to getting back to camp to eat. I think it was the only experience I've had where people would strategically position themselves, plate and cutlery in hand, to be closest to the tables when the pots came off the fire. It tasted so good that even the animals wanted some, as my friend discovered when an eagle swooped down and swiped her fish straight off her plate!
