This is an experience of a lifetime. Great tents. Private swimming pool, 5 meters away from the wild. Just unbelievable. Just amazing. Friendly staff and a breakfast you will never forget. Walk to the water hole in the early morning. Magic. Talk to the staff. They can tell you stories you don't get on animal planet :-)

My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to a two-night stay at the Manyatta Camp over Christmas 2014. The tents, each with its own splash pool, was fabulous - very relaxing with a big bed, nice shower, and amazing outside area facing out towards the Tsavo Park. From our balcony we got to see elephants, buffalo, zebra, buck and... More

I stayed at Manyatta Camp in Tsavo East and would highly recommend it. The tents are so comfortable with a large four poster bed, a standard lamp, fan, separate toilet and shower and lots of electrical points so luxurious. The bonus is your own small swimming pool, where you can swim whilst watching for animals in the park arriving sooo... More

lovely spacious tents. we loved the private plunge pools and sundeck to relax whilst watching the wildlife. the bigger pool was ideally positioned for family splashing - visible from the restaurant which provided a barrier between pol and wildlife. We watched baboons crossing the park fence in the morning through the fly sheet of the tent. Elephants, waterbuck, giraffes and... More

Manyatta Camp was the first stop we made on our way to Mombasa, and Im glad to say that it set the mood for the whole trip. The staff was friendly and efficient. The tent was a double treat with its own private pool and facing the national park. We could swim and watch the wildlife from the privacy of... More

We stayed one night and it was awesome. Great views from the dining room, there is a small pool with sun beds just below the dining room. As others have said, outside your "tent" you have a plunge pool which is quite cool in temperature !! However it was great fun to jump in and cool off whilst having superb... More

Tented camp with little external swimming pools for each tent. Each tent backs onto the bush. We were fortunate to have a family of elephants walk past us just as dark fell. The accommodation was basic but fun and our teenagers loved it. Staff were lovely and friendly and the food good.

Stayed one night as a birthday surprise. Rooms are clean, spacious and well laid out. Love the big sun lounger and private pool (cold being June) overlooking the national park The wildlife lodge was closed so the place was super quiet and all to ourselves. Literally saw about 80 elephants wander around the waterhole within 10-20 meters of the lodge!!... More
