Amazing safari camp with lovely food, attentive staff and all the details that make for a magical stay. We were made to feel that we were extra special but I think that all the guests will have come away with the same impression. It was brilliant, the only shame was that there was only availability for 1 night and we...

Loved this lodge, right in the middle of Tsavo national park and an opportunity to stay in a tented style accommodation right opposite a water hole. Buffet was very good with a wide range of food. Stay here is authentic!!!

Just had a perfect 2 nights at Satao. The tents are very comfortable, and the food is amazing. But the best thing has to be the wildlife in camp. A herd of impala live there, as well as a troop of banded mongooses and of course hundreds of birds. They are all so habituated to humans that you can walk...

Stayed here one night during our visit to Tsavo East. The camp is perfectly located in the park. The service of the staff, as in many camps, was excellent! The camp itself had a great wilderness feel and the setup is nice and spacious with some of the animals roaming around between the tents. No worries, predators are kept outside...

I visited here for only one night, however the camp was so amazing and so memorable; I will surely be back anytime I am in Tsavo! The service received from the moment you enter the camp is second to none. The tents are furnished with everything you could need and the decor blends seamlessly into the surroundings. The large bathrooms...

Excellent stay once again. Satao always offers a variety. I stayed there in October and could see herd after herd of elephant arriving at Satao waterhole. In December, during heavy rains, I stayed there again and could not see any elephant on waterhole but they were around Satao. This is only because plenty of water is available inside park.

My partner and I, both safari camp managers, stayed here in early December as a short break from work. What a wonderful location. The bird life and activity around the waterhole ensured we were well entertained and the staff were brilliant and very helpful. We saw lions on almost every game drive and even came across three cheetahs on our...

We were only able to stay here for one night but we would have enjoyed a much longer stay. The camp is setup near a water hole so you get to see a lot of wildlife and they come very close. In fact after dark you're not allowed to walk alone--it's not fenced in like many other camps so anything...

We stayed here just for one night while on safari. Compared to other places we stayed in other parks, we were disappointed in a lot of areas. There was very little wildlife to see, the watering hole was empty our whole duration. The tent had holes throughout. Staff would put a rug and a chair in front of our tent...

Having stayed at Satao many times over the last fifteen years, we recently stopped over for one night. The place is amazing. It is without a doubt the best game viewing spot in the whole of Tsavo. In addition the tents have been renovated and the game drive vehicles have been upgraded. The staff and food is excellent. It is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Satao Camp is arguably one of the best locations in Africa for observing elephants from your tent. The atmosphere in the evenings with the Impala and Waterbuck sitting all around you is something quite unique and special. With only 20 tents Satao Camp is small and private. It is located away from the main congested areas of Tsavo so one can enjoy the privacy of being at one with nature. This is a true Safari Experience. ... more   less
