Satao Elerai Camp is located in a quiet, unspoilt, unique setting on a 5000-acre private conservation area south east of Amboseli National Park. In a fabulous location, the camp looks down onto the Amboseli National Park in one direction and up to Mount Kilimanjaro in the other.
The camp has 12 luxury en-suite mountain facing tents and five large luxurious lodge style suites. Both the tents and the suites are en-suite with the suites also having luxurious baths. The facilities are supplied with hot running water provided by eco-friendly solar units.
The Satao Elerai project is a community project that has been a long time in the making. The project has been a concerted effort between Satao Elerai, The African Wildlife Foundation and The Elerai community. The concept is to provide a sustainable income from tourism for the Maasai community in the area and to try and ensure that it is in the communities interest to protect the wildlife for generations to come. Amboseli has been a location where human-wildlife conflict has been an issue for many years, and it is projects like these that can over time ensure that communities start to benefit from wildlife and to ensure they invest in protecting and securing their future for their own benefit.
One of the biggest advantages of Satao Elerai Camp is that being located on its own conservation area clients have the chance to view wildlife in private surroundings. As well as day time game drives, you can discover the bush on game walks on the conservancy, night time safaris (activities that are not available to the lodges located within the park), and visit the local community.
