Spacious tents with comfortable beds & massive very nice bathrooms. Great camp open to the wonderful African wildlife. Staff were attentive & friendly on the whole but seemed a little slow & disorganised when there were lots of occupants present.

Had the in-laws visiting from Europe and wanted to wanted them to have a special safari with us and their grandson but also to stay within budget. After looking at many options ended up choosing Satao Camp, Tsavo. We had stayed here over 5 years ago and so were curious to see if it had changed during the time. As...

We went for a night and wished we could stay forever! Been here before and will be going again! They thought of everything that the traveller needs, and we had a superb personal BBQ on our table! Well done Satao! All the game to be seen was right in front of us at the watering hole! Staff were friendly, knowledgeable...

Arriving to a delicious lunch under the huge tamarind tree with graceful gazelle and waterbuck wandering at will and literally fifty or so elephant at the water hole... What more could one ask for? As usual, and wonderful in these Kenya camps, the staff were very attentive and friendly. We were only there for one night but the food was...

Our tent was 300 yards from over 100 elephants drinking water and/or congregating near the hole. It is an unguarded site and therefore offers a sense of "adventure". The food is average, the bar is nice and it is definetely a special plave to bre around animals. There is no luxury here but a solid three star for comfort and...

A truly marvellous camp, where you feel immediately welcome with the fantastic people running the Camp and the wonderful caring Manager Paul. Thank you so much for our unforgettable stay in your fantastic tents with hot water and everything one needs. Sitting on our terrace we were able to watch so many elephants that we lost count after 200 of...

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!!!

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
