A really beautiful place, so calm and peaceful. We drove by road from Nairobi and the journey was very easy, on reaching the camp you have to park the car and hop into a little dinghy to be rowed across the river, it's a lovely touch and really makes you feel like you have left civilisation behind. On arriving at the other bank we were greeted by refreshing towels and some fresh watermelon juice and then brought to lunch.
The tents were cosy, all ensuite, with paraffin lamps for light in the evenings which add to the camping atmosphere. The bar area is really cool, gorgeous round wooden bar and lots of comfy looking seats.
The food was exceptional, everything was creative and absolutely delicious. We had a gorgeous candlelit dinner outside under the stars and then retired to the campfire for some drinks.
There is also a lovely swimming pool which is nice after a day of exploring, and they keep some tortoises behind it, take a look!
The staff were all very friendly and helpful and you are a world away from any other tourists or people, this is what makes it so special; you don't feel like you're just another tourist on safari. Tsavo Safari camp is about more than the animals, this is important as this part of Tsavo has very dense bush so it's not so easy to spot game. However the group that had been there before us saw a lion feasting on a buffalo down by the river on one of their game drives so you can still see things, just not as easily as Amboseli or the Mara...but the flipside is you get a more real African safari experience. Definitely worth a trip, I will be back!
