HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

The camp is situated inside the Tsavo East National Park, and is fronted by this amazing water hole that elephants, buffaloes among other herbivores and the occasional leopard that you can view right from your dining table! The grove of bombax trees creates this amazing background especially for sun-downers when animals come to the waterhole. The view from the rustic...

Gateway to paradise of red elephants. The roomy tents with bathroom, toilet, fan. There is not air conditioning, electricity from the generator is turned off at night. Animals are easy to see from the dining room. Beautiful experience. Food very good, the staff friendly and helpful, personable manager.

The staff were very good here and made every effort to make sure we were comfortable. A particular shout-out to James who was very attentive. The watering hole is nice and close and well-lit. There is an upstairs type balcony as well which was lovely to sit on out under the stars after dinner. There was also a nice pool...

I visited in February with my 3 friends and my boyfriend and we absolutely loved it. The location is amazing right inside the park. From the restaurant we saw elephants, lions and baboons. The tents were great and had everything you needed. It was so much fun hearing the elephants roar in the night! I was initially worried about having...

We stayed at Sentrim Tsavo East in November 2016. At first we only planned one day safari as we were not convinced to stay in a tent in the middle of the savanna, but in the end we went for a two day trip. And we are happy we did so. The place welcomed us with hot towels and mango...

This is not the most comfortable or ambient safari camp and offers little by the way of ambiance compared to similarly priced offerings elsewhere - its poor value for money. At best, it is average compared with other similarly priced offerings at the National Parks. The staff were wonderful and the buffet choices are adequate but its not somewhere I...

It is a great place to stay. The food is good and you are welcome to a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. To call it a tented camp is not actually correct because the "tents" do not look much like tents. It is more like a spacy hotel room.

This was a magical camp, so relaxed and with wonderful staff. We had a magical stay and especially enjoyed all the wildlife right next to the restaurant tent, which was also fantastic. There were many visitors to the nearby watering hole, making it a really special place to sit and see wildlife. Food and drinks were exceptionally good. When the...

We loved this place. We stayed in a few places during our 4 day safari, and this was our favourite. The food at the buffet was great, the semi-permanent tent accommodation was great and the pool is decent. The view of the watering hole, and all the elephants this inevitably brings adds the overall positive experience. Definitely recommend this place
