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

The sight of mt Kilimanjaro above us as we breakfasted could not fail to impress. This camp was well served by the owning support team as we booked. Then the local service under Manja's expert and enthusiastic control was impressive. Food excellent and wide range of drink to accompany it. Support for self-drive safari excursions was good.

At the moment you can experience too, the icing sugar top of Kibo. Really nice! Thank you for your kind compliments,... More

This was our second trip to Kenya, and our first to the Severin Camp. It was delightful from the start, and we were treated like VIPs. The location is beautiful, located in the Tsavo West National Park, amidst hills and flatlands. The resort is a 5 star resort, and our "tent" was amazing. All expected amenities, and a wonderful view... More

The camp offers very comfortable tents around which many antelope came to graze: waterholes are scattered throughout the site. The spa has a swimming pool which is beautifully maintained and just big enough for a few strokes to provide some much-needed exercise. You enter the restaurant area past a clamour of nesting weaver birds. Then the show varies. For us... More
