what is going on everyone welcome to the channel  so it's super early right now it's pouring   and i just had to leave my comfy bed but now the  truck is all packed and we have to drive about six   hours up north leaving our nice and cozy house to  go sleep outside are you ready let's go let's go   if i have one tip to give anyone who wants to road  trip in kenya is that you have you really have to   do it on sunday morning i mean just look ahead  this never happened i think this is the longest   that we've ever had a stretch of rain like it rained  rain for like two and a half hours at the drive   but there's blue sky time to put the sunglasses on   so we just arrived an area that i have never  been in it's like a super super long dirt road   but as we're driving there's like a whole bunch  of camels on the side of the road and like   it looks deserty and some parts  almost remind you of like the arizona   like cliffs i guess if that makes  sense i don't know it's kind of cool   i think we finally made it we're just waiting  for a guy who's supposed to guide us to the camp after six hours and almost 70 kilometers in this  truck and on a dirt road we made it so we just got   a quick tour of this camp by the manager and it  looks phenomenal and on top of that we're the only   guests so that's pretty cool so before we spoil  where we are well this is the collection at least   so we arrived and we got a little bag of goodies  and i love when camps do this because it helps   with like the environment yeah so they give you  your own water bottle for personal use and to take home   pretty nice and then we have a mask  inside of here i'll show you at some point   and a little bottle of hand sanitizer that's  pretty cool so overall very very impressed   so far but now we're going to show you the room  because it is it is just so unique like so unique   it's yeah let's go let's just show you okay  guys so this is the entrance to our camp i guess   that's what you're gonna call it keep coming  keep coming you ready are you ready for this we are at star beds so this bed if you look down  on the ground it's actually on wheels so star bed   hence the name they roll it out onto your porch  and then you sleep under the stars guys we're   gonna sleep under the stars tonight so this bed  is basically on a trolley and it's all it looks   like it's all handmade you look underneath so it's  on the wheels and then you come around this way and here's the handles where  they put it out there and   there's like sandbags and stuff for the  wheel so it's not going to go anywhere   but then they put down the mosquito net clearly  so then you don't have to worry about bugs or   anything like that and pictures i've seen it's  actually like tucked in um but we'll show you   tonight and now that we've seen the bed let's go  see the bathroom so keeping with the outdoor theme   you can tell everything is open here which  i love it so you have your toilet standard   your sink with some more drinking water but look  at the outside shower and if you look at the   view from here you see the watering hole in the  background uh oh we might have a new favorite spot so this is where the bed is gonna be  so these we have a little patio for   right now but in the evening it'll be our bedroom and don't worry you can see  the electric fence down there   so no animals are coming up here  well maybe just like dick dicks and there's even a bean bag so now we're hungry it's lunch time first  meal here as usual high expectation but so   far i've never really been disappointed  on food so i'm starving i don't think   they're gonna start that even if food is  average like oh yeah yeah we're good we're   and we'll show you a little bit  of the rest of the camp as well you can see up there the main lodge   so when we arrived we saw the menu so i was  kind of looking at it to see what i want but   apparently we're getting everything that's  dinner and that's lunch apparently we're getting   all that it's a lot and we get the best  table in the house just just look at the view we're up to a good start with the  food guys because just that bread and   that tomato paste or something  it's phenomenal it's so good so we had to come in because it decided  to start raining that's all right um   but by the time we got in it stopped now hopefully maybe it's not quite done yet but hopefully we  still have like three hours before safari so   fingers crossed and we really want to sleep  outside tonight so we have two nights though yeah   we want all the rain to come down right now yeah  let's go so we got sundays and you top it yourself   so there's chocolate sauce dates cream peanuts  pineapple i think that's it well that was a very   good lunch would you say it 10 out of 10  would eat it again yes absolutely that was   really really good look at ice cream yeah  i felt like a kid topping my own ice cream   and the rain stopped i think it's slowly uh  starting to clear i see some blue sky over there   so that's pretty good yeah and we have just under  three hours before the start of our game drive it's pretty dark when you look that way but when  you look this way it's kind of blue a little oh   and the thunder is there we'll see guys we'll see  we're here for two nights so hopefully it's not   gonna be gross for two days right so where our  camp or whatever you wanna call it is so open   i'm a little bit chilly so i'm gonna get cozy  and wait for our game drive so since we had a   few hours to kill before our game drive we wanted  to be productive so we came to their main lodge   and this is where we've been hanging out i had  my afternoon tea here with some chocolate cake   and yeah it's a good spot we are all packed up  and now the moment we've been waiting for all day   our first game drive first game drive so the elephant we saw i don't know if the camera  captured it that well but he was so close like at   one point probably like two arm length away i have  to do a quick little stop for a turtle crossing   how old is this i don't know yeah  you see this cube you call them squids   from here if you start counting from here to here  one two three four thirty thirty one if it is a   boy or a girl you look this place but the male  is concave well we just learned a lot about   turtles because that turtle was the same age  as me 31 that's true it's pretty cool turtle   so here's a very good area for  leopard so we're on the lookout   no luck so far but that doesn't  mean anything still more to go got it   so we're heading back for  supper after a good sundowner and we are back to our room just like that  after a very lovely game drive it was very   fun yeah again all the guides make things  very yeah we have a very good guide he's very nice   his name is mohammed i like him and now as  you can see our bed is ready all tucked in   the rain has been like coming and going we kind  of saw a little bit of it at the distance i think   we're gonna be good so hopefully when we come  back after supper bed's gonna be rolled out   if it's not i'm probably just gonna put it out  we're not gonna go we're here for that we're here   for that yeah but we got one more night we'll  see so we're gonna freshen up and go for supper   so we got our flashlight water bottle to  fill up for night time and let's go eat so dave went to go sit down at the table in the  main lodge and the guy's like no no not here   but we're like we're the only ones here so david  thought he was joking he's like no seriously like   come out so we have dinner under the stars tonight  which we did not expect and it's so beautiful so we have some pumpkin soup to start and  our bread comes on a stick and it's like   it's made like that it is the softest  bread ever it's delicious it's perfect   so for supper we have some oxtail   stir-fried chicken with some roasted  vegetable and ugali classic kenyan dish this is as close to camping as i'll ever get  dave like we're sleeping under the stars we have   roasted marshmallows what more can i ask for guys  i'm so excited so we weren't sure if it was gonna   happen because of the rain but we came back and  our bedroom is empty and out bed is outside i'm so excited tracey's way too excited for this  all tucked in and now for a good night's sleep   ready for a good night under the stars that is  it our first night outside that's as that's as   camping as it gets five-star camping i've never  even been this much camping no fair enough so   we're gonna enjoy the stars and yeah we're gonna  pick you guys back up in the morning good night good morning i have my cup of coffee  the sun is starting to rise we're   so cozy outside oh my goodness there's  definitely worse places to to sleep   i can't get over that we woke up at  like well i woke up at around like 2   2 30 in the morning and the sky finally cleared  all the stars were out because just before going   to bed we had a little scare because it started to  rain a little but we're like oh we're just gonna   wait and it rained for like a minute but just  like very small drops so you were just hiding   in the covers and it was fine it came around but  the rest of the night was very nice and now yeah   the sun is slowly rising it's a nice spot i'm  gonna say it i'm gonna say it it's perfect you ready for a early game drive  i sure am i got nothing else to say theres a roadblock here tracey are we gonna make it so we just came back from our safari drive  walked about 70 meters and there we go   breakfast was ready i feel like again we're  lucking out where we're the only ones here   i think we get almost all of our meals  here it's pretty much the best spot because   you don't get a view like that  anywhere else it's pretty good well that's what i call our proper breakfast it's pretty cool but it makes me a little dizzy so  we just came back from breakfast which was uh very   good that was everything was yummy yeah not not as  much of a breakfast flavor as i i would like it to   be but very good i really enjoyed everything about  breakfast so now we have four hours before lunch   that's that's our next timing and we're going  to take a shower which is going to be something   because there's a little breeze coming in and  there's no walls for the shower they say it's   really hot water though so okay well we'll  test that find out and for the rest of the   time we'll probably relax work a little  be productive yeah pretty much and yeah   that that's i got nothing else to say then just go  back out nothing else so current shower situation   i'm pretty much in it shower head is right there  there's no wall but there's quite a view it's   a little windy might be a little bit chilly but  apparently there's hot water so let's check it out it can be a little tricky with the wind but it's   worth it because come on like  you're showering with a view and just like that we took an amazing  shower with a view like we showed you guys   we relaxed by we i mean tracey relaxed and i  finished editing another vlog and now we're   heading for lunch i feel like we're doing a  lot of uh of eating yeah to be honest i'm like   not hungry right now yeah but it's gonna be  so good that we're probably gonna eat anyway   oh well you know what we're just  gonna get fat not a big deal   today for lunch burgers what i mean with all  the toppings you can imagine there's like cheese   bacon avocados tomatoes some sort of sauces and  stuff and can we appreciate this for a moment   those are ugali chips never heard of  those before but they're super good   just like yesterday almost exactly the same  time with that raind out time to come in so for   dessert we're having some decorate it yourself  crepe who's winning that's mine and this is mine that was an amazing lunch that was so  good but i was already semi full coming into it   she ate it all anyway though i did not  i could not eat my burger yeah so now we're   waiting for four o'clock to have tea then  after that we're gonna go for another game   drive and can we take a second and appreciate  the view that we have from this camp just wow so if you look just behind me those cactuses  they're actually taking over this conservancy here   so less than 10 years ago somebody brought some  from possibly south america to create ornaments   and somehow they found themselves in the wild  and they literally started to grow everywhere   so they started to inject some beetles into it  trying to reduce the population of those cactus   but it didn't work right now they're manually  excavating them everywhere in the conservancy   so they don't take over so keep your plants in  your country it literally rained just long enough   to make our chairs wet so now we can't sit on  them but who wants to sit outside when you have   this cool bed like come on actually the cool thing  about this bed is that you can actually have both and just as we pulled the bed outside started  to rain so no relaxing outside on the bed   still raining a little now we're gonna go  for our game drive hopefully it's gonna stop   raining oh yeah tea first tea first tea first but yeah  otherwise we're gonna have to cover the truck but   still gonna be nice the rainy uh the rain  season just started here in kenya actually   they had like one of their first  rain the day before we arrived   so just bad timing but you know what it's  not that bad like there's still periods   where the sun is out where it's perfect  oh yeah drive like it's raining right now there's so many elephants out tonight  yeah they're literally everywhere right now we just spotted a leopard  which is very very rare so fun fact those little annoying birds  that just walk around and run and scream   all day long they actually sleep  on top of trees at night fun fact   so we just came back to our room and  we're gonna now get ready for supper   but we saw our second like full leopard not  just like a tail into the woods like a really   good sight yeah and like he walked perfectly  across the road i think he well you would have   seen it by now but you got footage of him like  pouncing a little bit yeah that was crazy we   kind of skipped sundowner for that but it  was worth it that was a really really good sight   the sky is so clear tonight and i think we'll  actually be able to enjoy it before we go to sleep   instead of waking up at 2 a.m and seeing it time  to relax in front of the nice fire here in that   kind of a living room situation lounge  lounge lounge just waiting for supper cheers   so because there's not well no we are the  only ones here we actually get a bush dinner   two nights in a row and like i said the sky is  clear and the stars are out guys it's perfect tonight we start with some chapatis  the best thing in kenya i love those so this is a super cool dessert so it's a  chocolate lava cake inside of an orange peel so good come on in it's pretty cozy in here so it's our last night  at the star bed and we are gonna take advantage   of it for sure because tonight it's even so  much better than last night because last night   it was kind of covered tonight it's 100 clear  there's so many stars the moon and everything   it's really nice i'm sad because it's very hard  with the camera to like show the sky because it's   so dark where we're in the middle of nowhere in  the conservancy but like with your naked eye like   the amount of star that you see is just unreal  unreal yeah so yeah we're gonna go to bed look at   the stars and eventually fall asleep probably real  soon i'm pretty tired see you guys in the morning   so this morning we're having a little bit of a  lighter game drive at like seven so we can sit   here drink tea and watch the sunrise yeah and can  we just talk about the fact that sleeping here is   amazing i had some of the better sleep in my life  same this bed is so comfy it's just like chilly   enough yet a lot of blanket on you it's just so  cozy i know i love it and trick if you don't want   the hot water bottles right away put them under  a pillow because i have one this morning yeah   but now she's gonna drink some tea i'm gonna  drink nothing because i'm not a big fan of   coffee or tea and we're just gonna enjoy the  sunrise so lions were reported this  morning very close to the camp so right now our   guide is looking for pawprint and we're trying  to track them down we'll see if we're lucky tracey is a little shy but normally  uh every time she sees hippos   she sings that song i want an hippopotamus for christmas only a hippopotamus will do as we were driving along we found this really  cool waterfall spot so we just did a quick stop   and time to go get some breakfast soon   bye we found she meant our guide mohammed he knows  all the good spots this one is for the boys if   you ever wonder what they're using for safaris to  bring you in those harsh condition well this is it   a land rover defender 300 2005 with a 3000 cc  engine turbocharged fully modified for off-road   not only the look of it but also mechanically  the suspension we even have those tires which   are kevlar tires they're basically bulletproof  so this is what we're using for safaris in kenya   so we just came back from our last game drive we  have one last breakfast left just before leaving   the star beds but before we do that we just  wanted to as usual give you a quick review   our thoughts about this camp which i loved this  yeah it's definitely tied up with sirikoi just   because this one is a very unique stay and  that's why i can't say it's like a number one   yet because sirikoi is very classic but being  able to sleep under the stars and we were not   cold we had lots of blankets and everything and  wake up to coffee and go on your game drive like   i've had some of the best sleep in my life like  literally it was phenomenal that bed is super   comfy but being outside the cold and fresh  air and oh it was so good and it's not too   loud like sometimes at tented camps i find oh  sorry there's an elephant down there oh yeah um   sometimes i find that there's too many like animal  noises at night so like it makes me hard to sleep   but it was not that way here like there was a  few like you could hear the hippos the baboons   but the baboons were kind of fighting when you  went to sleep yesterday they were very loud but   otherwise like we slept amazingly and  overall i mean the stuff was super nice and   don't get me wrong we were alone here  so you know it was a very personalized   service but at the same time there's only four  uh rooms with beds like that there's only four here at the same time four couples so it's always  kind of personalized uh normally you have shared   game drive which we didn't have because again we  were alone uh but i'm sure that even when the camp   is full uh you still get like amazing and very  personalized service the staff the staff here is   very very nice food was great too very good like  no issues yeah at all and i love these camp uh   where they actually served like uh kenyan meals  like for not breakfast and lunch were normal   uh yeah average normal international  kind of food but every supper we had   was you know like ugali and chapatis and  like the chicken yeah exactly very like uh   yeah we had goat last night too yeah and it was it  was super good we really liked that kind of food   so that was really good so overall i mean amazing  10 out of 10. i would do it again absolutely   like i want to bring my family here in terms  of unique stay that's my number one like   absolutely no questions asked yeah so hopefully  you enjoyed that video and stay posted because   from here we're going to another camp and then  another camp so lots of cool videos coming up   so don't forget to like this one subscribe to  the channel and see you guys in the next one
