          Had a lovely drive and walk through the ranch. Saw *lots* of wildlife including wildebeeste, zebra, giraffe, antelope, eland, warthogs and gazelles. Sunbirds, woodpeckers and weavers right in the camp gardens. Lovely for quiet getaway, small conference, family weekend.

          Is it still possible to rent mountain bikes at the camp, as one of the reviewers had mentioned some time ago? If so, are they in good condition?

          Bike hire is not available at camp but Baiskeli Adventures (check out their website) runs bike tours in the conservancy. They provide bikes for hire and a guide.
