Excellent food and staff exceptionally friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the wildlife. Nothing was too much trouble. The masai safari guide Tom took us to all the hot spots. He was a twitcher and knew his birds. Lovely infinity pool with spa and a... More

Located in the magnificent Tsavo West National Park, Severin Safari Camp is the place to go to experience all that the park has to offer, in a relaxing setting with superior service. The rooms are comfortable and the food is outstanding, but more than that, the staff creates a welcoming environment that made me feel like royalty. I highly recommend... More

Went to mzima springs to see the hippos from here! Even more luxurious than camp east! The road here was tarmac and well looked after! 3hr drive from camp east but completely different atmosphere and experience! Do both! Would go back 1000 times!

JAMBO, dear Ellie B. Thank you for your feedback. It is definitely worth visiting both Parks Tsavo East & Tsavo West. You will see the different characters and landscape. I love Tsavo West with its beauty, the change of land shapes every now and then, the hills and lava. It’s a bit of a hidden park…a secret in paradise, worth... More

We arrived at Severin Safari Camp just in time for lunch after a long drive from Nairobi. The drive to the camp is well posted at the junctions inside the national park. We were received well and check in was very swift, after a welcome drink and a cold towel to cool down in the heat. We were shown our... More

We only spent one night here as part of a 2 day safari and wish it had been our base for both nights. The staff where very friendly and the tent was extremely comfortable, complete with en-suite.

This was an excellent camp and we love tented camps; the pool, the waterhole, birdlife and game drives were excellent. We only had one complaint in that we never had hot water other than that brought by the staff from the kitchen and for a 5-star outfit that is simply not good enough.
