Satao Elerai Camp is the only camp in the Satao Elerai Conservancy - 12 Kms from Amboseli national park which is famous for its elephants - under Dr Cynthia Moss's elephant project started in the 1970s, the elephants of Amboseli are the longest studied elephants in the wild giving an insight into their behaviour - so much that we did...

My friend and I booked a night in this camp at the last minute and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Everything is just right: every single one of the staff was very friendly and professional, each meal was excellent, the rooms were spacious and impeccably clean, the sundowner which includes a cocktail and snacks as you watch the...

I say mostly because getting there was the only terrible part. The 5km drive in couldn't have been more bumpy, dusty or uncomfortable. And we had to do it each time we left on a game drive. I say it wasn't worth it, but my husband says it was. The best part was waking up to see Mt. Kilamanjaro in... More

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.
