OUR SAFARI LODGES AND TENTED CAMPS
The Other Half of Your Safari Experience
Think of your safari and images of lions, leopards, giraffes, and elephants populate the great savannahs in your mind. But what about when the sun goes down? Can you picture yourself sipping a drink in the day’s afterglow, cozying up by a campfire, and then settling into a comfy bed serenaded by the music of the night’s wildlife?
A large part of your safari is spent at your lodge or tented camp and can be just as meaningful as your game drives. The setting where you lay your head at night should be the perfect finish to the rush of the day’s adventures. And just as rich with memories.
Choose Your Setting With Care
Do you envision yourself in a rustic lodge filled with the colors and adornments of the surrounding natural world? Or do you fancy nights spent in a well-appointed tented camp, serenaded by the early morning calls and awakenings of the nearby animals?
There is no “right” choice… just your own particular preference for what best completes your safari. At Africa Kenya Safaris we’ve done our research, locating the best accommodations to suit your needs, whether your budget is basic or more lavish. But every choice we offer completely satisfies our standards for comfort, safety, and authenticity.
Please view the accommodation examples below at several of our national parks and reserves. Each location features offerings in economy, comfort, and luxury tiers.
The Masai Mara National Reserve is the richest and densest eco-system in the region – alive with big cats, elephants, and endless herds of wildebeests and zebras. It’s also the richest environment for accommodation choices – at least 40!
Some of them are set by the Mara River in view of the hippos and crocodiles. Others border the savannah with sightings of zebra, giraffe, buffalo, and gazelle. They’re all a brilliant finish to your safari day.
Offerings here vary from comfortable lodgings set on the shore of freshwater Lake Naivasha to a “country club” lodge nestled at the edge of the Great Rift Valley with commanding views of the lake thousands of feet below.
With its perfect blend of lake, waterfalls, and acacia forest, Lake Nakuru National Park also offers visitors a wide range of settings in which to spend their evenings. Some present views of the surrounding countryside and others of the lake itself.
Set near or within Amboseli National Park, most of these accommodations offer views of spectacular Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest peak. Depending on your choice of lodge or tented camp you’ll enjoy meals in sight of elephants, zebra, and buffalo. Also featured are bush dinners, Maasai dance performances, walking safaris, and family interconnected rooms.
Tsavo East Park
Tsavo East National Park is known for its vast herds of elephants – some of these camps and lodges are located right in the heart of elephant country. From the comfort of your veranda, you can watch hippos, elephants, even crocodiles… depending on your choice of lodging. Many also feature views of nearby waterholes and some offer bush breakfasts and dinners.
Tsavo West Park
All of Africa’s “Big Five” wildlife are found in Tsavo West National Park – you can see many of them from the lodge of your veranda. Some of the accommodations here even feature views of iconic Mt. Kilimanjaro in the distance.
Don’t be fooled by the phrase, “tented camp” – these tented accommodations have all the comforts you would expect – no amenity has been left out. The wildlife is abundant and varied at Ol Pejeta Conservancy. You’ll even get views of the animals from your private watering hole and there is also a night viewing bar.
