We have been coming to Senyati Safari Camp for the last 2 years and always enjoyed our stay. Our last stay, however, was a great disappointment. To start with, we were "greeted" by a strange lady at reception who was very unfriendly and unpleasant. It is apparent that she does not know the principles of hospitality and what guests have...

This was our second visit to Senyanti and after reading a couple of rather concerning reviews we pushed on and still booked for 3 nights. We arrived a day late to a very welcoming Lulu. She was a super star, arranging a boat cruise for us and calling us when the buffalo were at the watering hole. The camping facilities... More

In the past 4 years, we went to Senyati no less than 4 times a year, for no less than 3 nights per visit. That totals 48 nights, ranging from 2 people, up to 6. We never had any problems and urged our customers to visit this awesome place as much as possible. During October I booked 2 campsites for... More

It's a very good spot to be close to places with shopping options and other urban facilities in Kasane and Kazungula AND the Chobe Game Reserve, with extraordinary chances to see every kind of game. The people who run senyati are friendly and helpful. They organise tours to Victoria Falls and other activities. For us, travelling with our own car... More

As we walked in we were a bit disappointed by the bungalow but that was all made up by fabulous personal and real friendly service, awesome view over the giraffe filled plains, great deck overlooking the waterhole where 16 elephants came to visit on NYE and dancing with Lulu on top of the bar going from 2013 to 2014!

We spent 3 nights here and did not regret it. Why should you stay here? Non-commercial, non touristy, yet only 20 minute drive to town Private kitchen and ablutions thatched area with shade-helpful during the heat of the day. Power outlets and free wifi a bonus. Busy waterhole with an outdoor covered viewing area from the bar or a bunker... More

I agree with all that has been said, we camped here for three nights and the waterhole was always busy, loads of elephants and one night 300 buffalo as well as plenty of other wildlife. Camping facilities were very good and this is a nice quiet camp, no overlanders! Free Wi-Fi is an added bonus, and do go into the... More

What a fantastic surprise I had when I visited Senyati in October. Firstly Senyati does not accommodate overlanders. That means that the BAR WITH THE BEST VIEW IN THE WORLD is quiet and serene...elephants, baboons, warthogs, sable, orix, roan antelope and we were even lucky enough to see two wild dogs. After my first day there, I thought, okay, now... More

We camped already for the 3 d time in 3 years in Senyati and it was wonderful again. Good and private facilities in the campsites where if you are lucky you can see the elephants going to the waterhole. But if you rather want to drink a beer from the terrace overlooking the waterhole you are welcome too. Depending your... More

Just came back from a few days at Senyati and we absolutely loved it. On one day particular day were as many as 70 elephants at the waterhole. In the same morning we saw roan antelope, orix, wart hog, loads of giraffe and a fish eagle fishing right in front of us. Louw and Lulu were lovely. They organised the... More
