Savage wilderness has been around for over 25 years. I feel a bit ignorant for only discovering it this year, oh well, better late than never.
My colleagues and I were recently there for our annual team building weekend (3D/2N for a group of 39 people).
One of my favorite things about Savage wilderness is that transport from Nairobi can be arranged with them and the price be included in the cost per person. If more local destinations had this simple and convenient arrangement, I can imagine it would drastically encourage domestic tourism.
We departed Nairobi on a Friday and arrived at Savage Wilderness about an hour and a half later. The first thing you notice on arrival is the amazing greenery, one gets a true sense of the ‘great outdoors’.
It is important to note that this is not a 5 star luxury resort. Savage wilderness deals in adventure tourism, and as such, the accommodation is decent but not luxurious, consider it part of the adventure experience 😉
Our room was basic but enough; toilet, shower, bed, pillow, sheets, mesh on the windows etc..
There are so many activities available. We took part in several ‘team building’ activities and just a handful of adventure activities.
I am TERRIFIED of heights, a fact that I frequently forget. One of these photos captures the moment that I remembered my fear. Mind over Matter!
(Everyone needs to get over the wall..I will call it the wall climb)
We did a couple of other team building games and activities. We had the opportunity to jump in the river, 6 (out of 39) of us did; 3 men and 3 women. You have to jump in with a life jacket, helmet and your shoes; it is after all an actual river.
FOOD- The food is GREAT! It’s unlike any food I have experienced at ‘luxury’ establishments…this food tasted like home food that my mummy could have made. True story 😉
My experience was incredible and I am soooooooo looking forward to going again VERY SOON with friends. Apart from the activities we did, they also have kayaking, white water rafting, bungee jumping and mountain biking, to name a few.
