When my family and I were looking for a location to have my 'Bush' Wedding, we came across Satao Elerai. This place could not have been more perfect. What beautiful views of Kilimanjaro, the peaceful surroundings and overall really nice place to stay! What made it come together was the staff and how we were all looked after and accommodated....

This was our first destination on our first visit to Kenya and set the tone for the rest of our trip. To get there, we flew to Amboseli from Nairobi where our guide Nyaga met us and drove us to the camp via the park. Thus, we enjoyed our first game drive on the way! It is quite far to... More

For anyone who has ever been to Africa, you would appreciate things not being sugar coated and rather being told as they are. The view when you wake up is just beautiful!! Hospitality is top class and The Manager and his staff was the best we've ever had!! Will only stay here when in Kenya again and highly recommend SATAO... More

Lived in Kenya for many years and was lucky enough to visit some of her very special and magical places. Satao Elerai tented camp is quite simply the best I have ever visited. The tents are beautifully designed and the view of Mount Kilimanjaro from our balcony quite literally took my breath away. And lying in the infinity pool while... More

In a country whose safari industry is notorious for not sharing the spoils of tourism with local communities (called “leakage”), Satao Elerai Community Lodge, located on Maasai lands adjacent to Amboseli National Park, stands out as a shining example of how things should be – and need to be – done. For me the stand-out point of the lodge –... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The camp is beautiful and the service and staff were amazing. Drinking my early morning tea on the decking with Kilimanjaro out in all her glory made my day. Sundowners in the conservancy was an experience not to be missed. Will certainly be back.

My friends and I visited this camp over the Christmas and New Year period. It was an amazing experience. The camp had something else about it that we hadn't experienced elsewhere in Kenya. It is located on its own conservancy which was as good if not better than the park itself, with a beautiful sundowner spot. The views from the... More

We spent 2 nights at the Satao Elerai and unfortunately the lasting memory of our stay was a bad bought of food poisoning. It happened after we had been there a day and a half and we both came down with it within a couple of hours of each other so there is little doubt that one of the meals... More

Goosekenya, Owner at Satao Elerai, responded to this review

Thank you for your review of Satao Elerai. I was most concerned to hear that you were sick during your time with us and that it was put down to food poisoning, possibly from the Picnic lunch. This is the first such complaint we have ever had at the camp and we take your comment very seriously. I have been... More

We stayed here for one night in October whilst on our safari, I wish we had stayed longer. The camp is amazing, our tented accommodation was perfect and the view of Mt Kilimanjaro from our tent was breathtaking. We loved the dining room and had an excellent dinner and breakfast, whilst enjoying the beautiful view from our table. Unfortunately we... More
