SATAO CAMP – Tsavo East national park
the Classic African Safari
Set in Tsavo East National Park, one of Kenya’s oldest and largest National Parks, Satao Camp is the ideal choice if you are looking for an authentic ‘Old African’ safari experience.
The location of the camp couldn’t be any better; positioned in a shady spot beneath mature Tamarind trees and just in front of a waterhole, which attracts daily visits from huge herds of elephants throughout most of the year, as well as many other animals.
