I just came back from Severin Safari Camp and I totally loved it. It was actually my second time there but the first time was just for lunch and not an overnight stay. Having the opportunity to spend the night brought out a whole new dynamic to the camp. It was beautiful at night, the bar, lounge and dinning area... More

We have been here several times before, and bed and bush were always up to our expectations! There is an interesting option for residents from Nairobi or the Coast, who come with their own car and prefer self catering: you can stay in neighboring Kitani Bandas for very reasonable money. The free use of pool, WIFI and gym in Severin... More

We spend 5 nights in this fantastic place and have never felt more welcome in a hotel. The staff was great and everyone made such an effort to make our stay memorable.

We spent 2 nights in this camp. Our room was nice, spacious with a beautiful view to the pond where we could see animals came to drink everyday. We saw few giraffes outside our room and it was amazing to have your book or drink lying down under the veranda of your room watching the animals. The bathroom was nice,... More

A beautiful oasis with a gorgeous pool and I was fortunate to have a massage which was delightful after many game drives. We had room 18 which was directly opposite a water hole - perfect for morning and dusk animal watching.

Beautiful owner run camp and by far the most luxurious tented camp we have stayed at. Fantastic facilities include a spa and swimming pool area. The tented rooms with a private verandah are Spacious, the linen is crispy and clean and great bathroom facilities. Free wifi through out the camp. Lovely way to end our trip.

What an experience to spend a couple of days in this safari camp. You're treated like royalty, the people there are more than friendly, when it's dark you're brought to your cabin by a Masai and he also wakes you up in the morning.
