The tent was lovely with a great big four poster bed. Felt a bit bad about the masai having to fill up our hot water tanks by hand. Also a bit scarey having to have one escort you to and from the tents, although understandable given the hippos and crocs wondering around! Nice to sit on the porch and see...

The camp itself is really nice. You can sit on the restaurant pouch eating dinner and look at the hippos. The staff is friendly and the tents are neat. The downside is that it takes about half an hour to get to the NP gate which steals precious time of early morning game drives. But the major impression is the...

We chose to spend the safari leg of our honeymoon at Patterson's Camp and had a truly wonderful experience. The staff we're exceptional in their attitude, attention to detail and warmth. If you are looking for an authentic East African safari experience then Patterson's Camp would be a great choice. With the freedom to self drive (as we did, my...

We wanted to stay in Tsavo East on the way to the coast and chose this camp. However, while technically it is in the park, practically it is not connected to any roads in Tsavo East so for us it created a bit of a hassle. The location is very nice - on the banks of a river. The staff...

What a wonderful experience to stay at this camp. The staff was so eager to serve us, which was a treat for someone from the service industry!!! We were greeted with a juice and refreshing towel and they gave us a quick briefing of the grounds and what we could do while we were there. Generators run the camp around...

this place is beautiful. It is right on the banks of the river and has a lovely set up. The staff were fantastic, the food is very tasty and filling - not extensive choice as it's not a buffet but still when you think where you are it's fantastic. When we went they hadn't had water for 2 years so...

Having watched the movie "Ghost in the darkness" we felt compelled to try this tented camp named after Col. Patterson. Its quite a long journey from Mombasa along the main Nairobi highway, through the town of Voi. You turn right off the highway, just past the second "maneaters bridge" - the original Patterson bridge is no more. You then bump...

We took a couple of days off work and visited this tented camp situated outside the national park. its a 3 and a half hour drive from Nairobi and 9km's off the main road. There is not much to see there in terms of wild game besides the resident elephants and the crocodiles and hippos. its set in a rivering...
