“A longtime favourite and one of only five camps in Tsavo”
As one of the only five camps in Tsavo East, a safari here offers you a very novel and exclusive experience of game viewing. Located near the seasonal Voi River in the park, Satao Camp has a very respected team of staff and guides who really know their stuff, who have not only attracted a large number of visitors, but also have enticed a number of giraffe, hippo, baboons, elephant and impala to come and visit!
Satao Camp sits in the heart of Tsavo East National Park in southern Kenya. The park homes a variety of animals, but is famous for its large herds of elephant and buffalo (up to 1000 at a time)! Game drives in the camp take place in the morning and afternoon, and drive mostly around the Voi River and the Aruba Dam.
The camp has 20 tents which are in semi-circular pattern to have views of the camps’ central watering hole. There are 16 family tents and 4 suites, each with its own small veranda with patio and chairs. Lunch is served around the waterhole and dinner in the restaurant lounge area in the evening. After dinner, the camp encourages guest to join each other around the camp fire and watch the animals “by night” from the observation tower!
As much of the buildings across East Africa, the tents have a makuti roofing, which is thatching made from sun-dried leaves of the coconut palm. The tents themselves are very spacious and each have en-suites with running water and flushing toilets. The showers are true safari style bucket showers, whereby the camp stuff brings hot water in the evening. The rooms are beautiful, with comfortable beds and furniture and African bedding material/pillows.
Satao offers game drives to see the wildlife and is also a haven for bird lovers! The guides at the camp live in Tsavo and are very knowledgeable. Additionally, they are more likely to know the whereabouts of the big five and the names of the myriad of birds that live in the park. The camp also offers sundowners in special spots around the park. These are great for watching the beautiful African sunset with a glass of bubbly and some tasty nibbles in hand.
