Reviews 4.8


Elerai Camp is located in a quiet, unspoilt, unique setting on a 5000 acre private conservation area 12 kms south east of Amboseli National Park at the foot of Africa’s Largest mountain, Mt Kilimanjaro. The camp looks down onto the Amboseli National Park in one direction and up to Mt Kilimanjaro in the other direction, giving clients what is arguably the best location of any camp in Amboseli.

Elerai Camp is a luxury tented camp located in the heart of the wildlife-rich Amboseli ecosystem, in Kenya. The camp offers stunning views of Mount Kilimanjaro and is situated on a private conservancy bordering Amboseli National Park.

Elerai Camp offers a range of activities including game drives, guided walks, and cultural visits to local Maasai communities. The camp also has a swimming pool where guests can relax and cool off after a day of safari adventures.

The camp currently has 9 luxury en suite mountain facing tents and 5 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 along time in the making. The project has been a concerted effort between the Satao Elerai, The African Wildlife Foundation and The Elerai community. The concept is to provide a sustainable income from tourism for the Masai 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.

The camp is committed to responsible tourism and works closely with the local community to conserve the wildlife and protect the environment. Overall, Elerai Camp offers an authentic African safari experience with luxury accommodation and excellent hospitality.

One of the biggest advantages of Satao Elerai Camp is that being located on its own private conservation area clients have the chance to view wildlife in private surroundings. In addition we also offer clients the chance to enjoy spectacular bush sundowners, night game drives and game walks on the conservancy, activities that are not available to the lodges located within the park.
