We spent three 2 nights there and so many great souvenirs for the whole family:the amazing view of Mt Kilimanjaro the morning, the walk in the surrounding dry river with a great guide, the sunset on the top of a surrounding mountain, the noise of the animals the nights. Excellent food and warm welcome of the personnel fully adhering to... More

We spent four nights here and enjoyed every minute. On the second day we were able to go into Amboseli Park (half an hour away) one afternoon and early the next morning using the same 24hr ticket. But we spent a lot of time just enjoying the camp's surroundings, by sitting on the terrace and watching the water hole 400m... More

We spent one night here. Wish it could have been more. Wow. The architecture is amazing. The tents are something else. Clean, comfortable, power 24hrs. Woke up in the morning with a view of Mt Kilimanjaro! The tents are surrounded by nature, with guards to escort you to and from your tents. There were only 4 of us staying here... More

We had 2 nights here and I recommend anyone who is staying here to see Kilimanjaro to stay for at least 2. The whole first day and night the mountain was covered in cloud but afternoon on the second day it cleared right up to give us a perfect view. The food was so delicious. Probably the best food I...

I stayed 1 night at Elerai Camp adjacent to Amboseli National Park. Flying in comfort and style with Scenic Air Safaris saved so much time and I was met with friendly faces and refreshments before embarking on a wonderful game drive seeing many groups of elephant and a large variety of other game en route to the Camp. Elerai is... More

Satao Elerai was our second stop as we safaried through several parks in Kenya. Upon arrival we were made to feel very welcome. Our new 'home' was comfortable and, for the most part, user friendly. The addition of a table for one's luggage, would be welcome. The only possibility was the trunk, which doubled as a safe...a little awkward when... More

Satao Elerai was the camp of our choice in Amboseli. Having stayed in the bigger lodges of Amboseli before, this Masai-owned and managed place is a wonderful place in its own conservancy adjacent to the great Amboseli National Park. Access is via the Amboseli-Oloitokitok road and a bumpy 5 km side road. The location and view couldn't be better, with... More

As this was our first camp of 6 we didn't quite know what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised with the camp. Sure it's a little farther out than most and you get an African massage whenever you go back to the camp, but that's part of the experience of being in Africa. Our drivers name was Sammy, he was...

We loved our stay at Satao Elerai - my husband and son and I were very impressed with the huge, deluxe, and well-appointed tent. This camp has truly paid attention to details and that makes a difference when you are paying a significant amount for a holiday. We had the most amazing views of Kilimanjaro right out our tent flap.... More
