The most relaxing time you could imagine. Breakfast overlooks the waterhole with elephants roaming freely was such an experience never to be rivalled. Food and drinks are of a high standard. Satellite TV in the main lounge area

The Sentrim is a small lodge which gives more for the money than anywhere I've been in Kenya. A reasonably priced spa, a pool, very competent staff and spacious tented accommodation with chairs on the veranda overlooking the plains. This part of Tsavo is amazing.

Very comfortable stay, great local cuisine, excellent, very hospitable staff. One can view elephants directly from the restaurant. The rooms are very nice and perfectly clean.
