Satao Elerai is a beautiful camp located right outside Amboseli National Park. The accommodations are first class, the staff friendly and attentive, and the views are outstanding. It is a small, quiet camp yet perfect for romantic getaway or a family vacation. I will definitely be returning!

This tented accommodation is superb. The rooms are very spacious with lovely furnishings, a king sized bed and a wonderful ensuite The lounge, dining areas are very unique and beautifully designed. Food is delicious, as is the service, but one of the most pleasant surprises was the hot water bottle on a very cold night!

On our return trip to Kenya, we went back to Satao Elarai and it didn't disappoint. The management and team there did an excellent job taking care of us and treating us to the best view of Kilimanjaro in Kenya. The staff was the best, our guide Joseph was outstanding, and the food at the lodge superb. Always a tasty... More

Having been away to Kenya on a couple of previous occasions I can say without hesitation that this was the trip that will forever live in my memory. I travelled with a group of friends from the UK without having done too much research into where we were staying. The staff, the facilities, the food and the views were absolutely... More

Once I started writing this review I just couldn’t stop… I was lucky enough to spend 5 nights at this camp in July 2015. I was travelling as part of a group (10 people) as a celebration primarily to celebrate a 30th birthday but also, recently married, my husband and I decided we would treat this as our ‘buddy-moon’. There... More

This place is the most amazing experience, Satao Elerai is highly recommended to all. The views of Mount Kilimanjaro are breath-taking which makes for perfect locations around the camp for sundowners never to be forgotten! We were extremely well looked after by the staff who were all lovely, Sammy & Benson were amazing on our drives, so much knowledge and... More

We visited Elerai last week with a large group of friends. What an incredible experience and thoroughly recommended. Elerai offers luxury surroundings in an unfenced camp, making it a luxurious and exciting place to stay. Every detail was considered; we had hot water bottles in the bed upon returning to the room to sleep! The food was fantastic with excellent... More

We were blown away by our stay at Elerai. The small touches of hot waterbottles in the bed and wet flannels to great you back from a dusty safari really cap off what is a superb camp. Every day we say elephants by the watering hole over breakfast and our game drivers were very knowledgeable with a keen eye. Authentic,... More

Arriving at Satao Elerai without luggage (lost in transit during our long flight from Australia) didn't stop us having a wonderful experience for our very first safari. We were so well looked after in all areas, with magnificent views of Mt Kilimanjaro from our tents, fantastic food and a wonderful driver (hi Benson, we loved your passion for sharing your... More
