“The staff and service was exceptional. Your staff are always polite, attentive,
well trained and professional. We are grateful for their genuine kindness.”

Sentinel Camp is a small owner run camp with an emphasis on intimate personalized experiences for our guests as well as attention to detail. The owners, Peter and Wendy Twycross work alongside competent staff who impress guests with their attentive service and friendliness.

Peter has spent most of his life in Africa, where he has regularly enjoyed the bush and has Kenyan and South African guiding qualifications. He was educated at Oxford University , with archaeology being his special subject. He worked with the Africa Conservation Trust, with its focus on reforestation in Kenya and is chairman of Business For Life which is directed by his wife Wendy. It has been successful in training the poor to start their own businesses with minimum capital.

Wendy is an ethnomusicologist with a keen interest and knowledge of local cultures. She also plays the oboe in the Nairobi Orchestra.

Together they are passionate about introducing others to Africa and extending their experience and knowledge of its natural wonders as well as peoples with their different cultures.

Our silver level guides are the Masai who excel in their practical and theoretical knowledge of the wild. This is complemented by the rapport they establish with guests and the entertaining way they share their knowledge with them.
