“Unexpected Oasis!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

We were lucky enough to spend a few nights at Tsavo Safari Camp in 2011. It really was an unexpected oasis after the drive through the National Park. The staff were brilliant and our hosts were extremely welcoming. Being off the beaten track, you really sense the authenticity of the Kenyan experience - the animals, the stunning scenery along the river and up to the escarpment - yet you find yourself experiencing it in the lap of luxury! The tents are great - extremely comfortable and clean with en suite. Nature drives and "Sundowners" were a highlight of our stay. It was just a pity we had to leave!

We traveled to Tsavo Safari Camp in May and the river was up due to the rains, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will certainly return for a second stay. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The outings especially were special: one felt so lucky to be able to do these things! A walk along the flooded river to a full breakfast set up on the banks, complete with tableclothes, omelettes to order, and flora and fauna pointed out en route. The sundowners looking over the Yatta Plateau were really spectacular and the walk up there made you feel you had earned the reward! I feel rdmandel is very mean to blame the camp for the flooded river, as we were there for the trip when he was, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Thank you so much Meera.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are facing the river, we had the end room so it was very private and ask for the fr...

This is the second time that we have been fortunate to visit this beautiful camp and we would definately return for a third time.
The wonderful Desai family gave us such memorable experiences such as bush walks, sun downers and safari trips. The staff are so friendly and gave us superb service. We miss you all!!
The food is always delicious and of a very high standard.
The tents are brilliant with an en-suite bathroom and shower. The wildlife you will experience will blow your mind. We recommend this place to everyone. We will be back!

Came to the kitaani kya ndundu Tsavo Safari Camp from Norway in February 2012 and stayed for a week. The camp is like nothing I have ever seen before. The photos and the website really does it no justice whatsoever. The tents were great fun with en-suite bathroom, the food was amazing, the pool was lovely, the staff friendly, welcoming and always willing to help. A big thanks to Mr Desai for telling me so many wonderful stories of the history of the camp. Last and not least many thanks to Meera Desai for making me and my family and friends feel truely looked after.

The camp itself is wonderful. I can assure anyone thinking about going you will have an amazing time. In fact I think I will be travelling there again soon.

I must strongly object to the review by rdmandel (not his real initials -not really from Colorado) calling it a nightmare. We were on that trip with the author and he wrote the bad review to punish the owner for not giving him a free stay, which he sorely wanted and begged for continually. The camp was magnificent and could not have been more hospitable, the food was fantastic and the staff extremely friendly and polite, and nothing was too much trouble. The outings were well supervised and the bush breakfast by the river, and the sundowner drink settings highly memorable- the pool a quiet oasis. I will definitely go back, and bring friends. The river crossing was difficult, yes, but we went with full knowledge that it was rainy season and the country was in flood. Meera even sorted out free park entrances for us all. Why should a camp put us all up for the night and feed us 3 extra meals, for nothing? It was not their fault the river came up so high. Shame on you

Room Tip: I would advise travellers to go out on a bush breakfast by the river, and to go the top of the Yatta...

Coming to Tsavo Safari Camp was the best decision I made in a long time to rest for a few days and feel like I'm in the middle of an oases! A total place of relaxation and prefect for letting your mind & soul dangle and 'refuel'. Watching the birds right in front of my tent and heading to the pool right after was just brilliant!! The staff is wonderful and the food delicious. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Front row to river, if available!

We came here with 26 family members after our wedding. We had a fantastic experience. Very comfortable accomodations, great food, and friendly staff. We had meals on the sandy beach and walks up the Yatta Plateau for sundowners. We would highly recommend Tsavo Safari Camp for family trips.
