We stayed on the 17th April butterflys all over the place, an elephant came and chilled out at the waterhole while we had lunch. The tent was clean with all facilities, the food was excellent and staff friendly and helpful would recommend.

The Ndololo Safari Camp was the perfect place to overnight while on safari in the Tsavo East National Park. The hospitality of camp staff was exceptional and the food was wonderful. The tents were well-equipped with a shower, sink, and toilet; the beds were comfortable; and there was nothing like hearing the sounds of the wild, complete with lion growls... More

I stayed for 2 nights with friends, and absolutely loved it! Had several heart stopping moments(ran back to my tent before a game drive only to come thisclose to a very very large elephant...I backed away slowly as previously advised by our guide in the eventuality...) The sounds of the elephants and other animals right outside your tent was very... More

Although not as fancy as some other nearby tented camps in Tsavo East (e.g., Satao Camp), Ndololo is a solid, less expensive option if you want to experience up-close-and-personal wildlife. Located inside the park less than 10km away from the Voi gate, Ndololo's lack of a perimeter fence means you will likely encounter wildlife throughout the day and night wandering... More

I am living in Kenya and I know what a nice tented camp is. This ndololo is good for people with no idea of what a good camp is and they think to be in the wild just because there is no fence, no security light in the night (how you can see animals??) and poor hygienic conditions. You cannot... More

We bought a 2-day safari from the guys from the beach in the price of $ 200 per person. Rickety bus took us from the hotel to Tsavo in 2.5 hours. It was a path through the passion, but we managed. After several hours of driving through the park in search of people willing to pictures of animals came to... More

I booked this camp based on the fact it had no fences and animals were free to come and go. When we arrived were greeted with a refreshing cold face cloth and drink. We were shown to our tent which was really very nice, two single beds but we didn’t mind. Well they are slightly wider than a single bed.... More

my husband and I spent the last night of 2011 at ndololo camp. we desired something special to celebrate the new year and we got it! the tent was very simple - weak light, little water in the shower, outworn bed sheet - but comfortable. what we appreciated most was the atmosphere and the kindness of the staff. the food...

We stayed for one night on the first day of a 4 day safari and Ndololo was a great plunge into Safari life. After all, it is just a tent in the bushes. :) The tents however are built on solid grounds and all have ensuite washing facilities. The food was exceptionally good and drinks' prices were also ok. It... More
