Location is good and value for money. Cottages are clean and comfortable and are serviced daily. All cooking and eating utensils are provided for, as is a fridge and cooking gas. Mosquito nets and bath towels also provided for. Guests have the added benefit of the pool, bar and internet at Severin Safari Camp, close by. Highly recommend to stay...

We had a wonderful stay here in the Severin Bandas. Alex, the Banda caretaker was wonderful and was a true asset to the team there. He was a great host and his service was truly 5 star. The bandas were ideally located and we were able to view a vast variety of game from our very own patio!! We loved...

This is a place that is a very good deal and I enjoy my stay always while at the self catering bandas. They are clean, well maintained, with very friendly and helpful staff. Best of all, you can use for free the facilities at the Luxury Severin Camp which include a pool, gym, wi-fi, restaurant etc

Individual stock numbers on the pelmet of each door indicate Kitani bandas are on the park inventory. These days Kitani Safari Lodge is operated by Severin who manage the lodge and...

This is our favourite place in Kenya to get away from Nairobi for a few nights. We love Tsavo West as a park - not the greatest for animal viewing but scenery and atmosphere are amazing. The bandas are well maintained, clean, and have everything that you need for self catering ( you can use the hotel resturant as well...

Kitani Bandas are close to but separate from the Severin Safari Camp The accommodation in each Banda are spotlessly clean and each comprises a twin bedded room with en-suite shower, a small but adequate kitchen and large covered stoop. They have everything there for you, knives / forks, plates, pans, gas hob and for KES 500 per day you can...
