While we enjoyed Amboseli Park for the abundance of wildlife, Severin Camp was our favourite accommodation. Our "tent" had canvas sides, but a stone floor, a lovely King-size bed, full bath and a porch to sit and watch the animals wander past to the 5 watering holes in the camp, because there are no fences. Close encounters with Impala, giraffes... More

Clean and comfortable, large airy canvas rooms i.e. tents on a concrete plinth with a thatched shade. Running water and electricity - even a hairdryer which is unusual in camps and lodges which are generator-dependent. Cheerful friendly staff and excellent food and service. Beautiful spa and swimming pool, excellent masseuse.

This place is one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed at. I came here with my boyfriend and another couple to stay for one night as a part of an organised three day safari to Tsavo West and Amboseli. Everything here exceeded our expectations. The best things about it is the staff and the fact that it... More

We arrived at the Severin Safari Camp in the early afternoon and stayed for one night only. The check-in process was very fast and efficient and we were already expected. The brief guidance given by the receptionist was succinct and informative and left no open questions. Wifi was available throughout the camp but rather slow! You will not have mobile... More

Severin is located nearer the middle of the park and is well signposted from all the gates. We stayed at the Kitani bandas, which is the self-catered part of the camp but we had access to the main camp, most importantly the pool(!). The bandas were simple but had everything we needed. The concierge, Alex, was fantastic. He was friendly... More

Staying at Severin was a nice experience. Great views of the harsh Tsavo landscape, excellent food and spacious rooms. Some of the rooms overlook a watering hole which attracts zebras and impalas. Downside, one tiny pool which was overflowing with children. And brusque staff, could use better customer service, excluding the head manager, who was great. Adult pool times and... More
