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!!!

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.

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
