Even though the track in was very rough the lodge was superb. We awoke to the majestic view of Mt Kilamanjaro right outside our tent flap. Lodge not fenced so truly felt we were in the heart of Aftica with an elephant trumpeting our arrival.Brilliant view of a water trough( lit at night) from the main lodge. Wonderful food, staff...

Stayed here for one night as part of a Kenyan safari. What can I say - WOW! This is the best place we stayed on our 11 night safari, and one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at worldwide! The main lodge is absolutely stunning with beautiful carved wood and luxurious leather armchairs, and to top it off an... More

From our deck on our first day, we could see zebras grazing 100 feet away. On the second day, about 200 feet away, we saw elephants, giraffes and zebras walking past. This is that kind of place. The tents are enormous, with spacious bathrooms made of masonry. The restaurant/bar area is beautiful, looking out on to a watering hole visited... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this camp lodge. The room was right at the foot of the Kilimanjaro with a view to die for. Even though you’re at the middle of the savannah the food was absolutely marvellous, so thank you chef. Also thank you nice staff and management, you were wonderful. Thank you !!

Satao Elerai is a place that will truly take you out of this world. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by the manager Ryan, who made us feel very comfortable and briefed us about our itinerary without taking too long. The tents were quiet and peaceful, well-equipped, and offered breathtaking views over the Kilimanjaro especially at sunrise. The weather was so... More

This is an excellent place to stay. Unfortunately, we had a few days of cloud cover and no sunshine but the staff, well managed by Ryan, were all excellent and very friendly. We had a thoroughly enjoyable few days and Joe was a great guide. the Bush Dinner was the highlight. AMAZING.

About 20 minutes drive from Amboseli National Park, Satao Elerai is the perfect place to enjoy Kenyan hospitality at its best, with friendly and efficient staff providing excellent service. From the view of Mount Kilimanjaro to short drives within the conservancy expect the unexpected as wildlife and birds are plentiful, especially around the waterhole. Highlight of the trip was an...

In 13 nights on safari this was the best location we stayed at. It was not the most upmarket - just full of character and well sited and operated. At breakfast our view of the Eland at the water hole was disrupted when the cheetah came for a drink. While wary. the cheetah remained some minutes and the photo of... More
