Satao Elerai Camp is an exclusive and eco-friendly game lodge set on a 5,000-acre private conservation area on the border of Amboseli National Park. Unsurpassed views in every direction, coupled with a truly unique camp designed and built from local materials, give the discerning traveller the chance to experience the flavours and romance of real Africa at its very best. Satao Elerai aims to ensure that all its clients not only receive the perfect safari but also experience a level of comfort and luxury that would be difficult to find elsewhere in Africa.

Apart from the region’s abundant wildlife, the lodge’s drawcard is its spectacular views of the Amboseli plains and majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak. Resident elephants are often seen from camp and are frequently heard trumpeting in the night, while the floodlit watering hole alongside the lodge attracts a variety of game, especially in the mornings.

Satao Elerai's central areas are built around a group of giant boulders, into which the swimming pool, reception area curio shop, terrace, main bar and dining areas have been nicely integrated. From the hotel-like reception area, you cross a short bridge over a landscaped fish pond, where rushes grow and weaver birds nest, to the bar (which stays open as long as guests want to order drinks) and split-level lounge and dining room, with an upper, observation floor with comfy seating. There is a selection of board games and books, making this a cosy spot to spend evenings in camp.

The lodge forms part of the community-owned Elerai Conservancy and you have the opportunity to walk alongside Maasai warriors in search of elephant, giraffe, zebra and other wild game as they herd their prized cattle to grazing grounds. When you are not on foot, embark on guided game drives into the Amboseli to see the park’s mighty elephant residents, acclaimed for their large tusks, and seek out Africa’s sought-after nocturnal creatures – like serval, genet, civet and aardwolf - on a night drive in the Elerai conservancy.
