We were really disappointed with Satao Elerai, especially after so many other incredible stays while on safari in Kenya.

First, the staff was quite rude on several occasions. We were the only ones booked the first night (green season for the win!) but they seemed like we were m

Response from Goosekenya, Owner at Satao Elerai
Responded 1 week ago
Dear Erin, Thank you for your review and comments on your recent stay at Satao Elerai. I am saddened to hear that you did not enjoy your experience and would really like to understand the details of the problems you encountered better so I can investigate and resolve the problems as soon as possible. If you could please email me directly (torben@sataoelerai.com) so I can ask for additional details I need to look into this. My key concern is relating to your comments on staff. This is against the ethos of Satao Elerai where the friendliness and flexibility of our staff is what normally characterises us and so I really need more information so I can ensure I deal with this immediately. Our sundowner includes sparkling wine (and not champagne) correct. We also provide Dawa (vodka, lemon and lime cocktail) as well as soft drinks and selection of bitting's. I am very surprised you say there was no soft drinks as these are always included and supplied. We have invested in three very good chef's in the kitchen and comments on Elerai food are always very positive. Again if you could email me specifics as to why you thought otherwise I can try and understand your view point and see what can be done to factor in your specific taste within our menu offering. Satao Elerai is generally dry and has no bugs. However as with everywhere in Africa when the tropical rains come if you leave a light on at night outside then it will attract insects and bugs. Very few if any are harmful, however they can be a nuisance to some. Therefore best to always close the doors and netting and keep lights off when not in use or required. You mentioned you had many other positive stays on safari, however noticed there are no reviews on these on your profile. Could I ask you to email me outline of your program and what other properties you stayed at during your safari. This will help me understand what you like as comparative to Satao Elerai. Look forward to hearing from you by email in detail so we can better understand your comments and I can personally look into each comment made and ensure they are acted on. Thanks. Torben Rune Owner Satao Elerai

This is a great place to stay when you want to visit the elephants at the Amboseli Park. The lodges are very well equiped, the view of the Kilimanjaro is breath taking, the service is extremely good and the food excellent.

My mum and I recently stayed at the Satao Elerai camp for two nights.

The tent we were in was beautiful and we had incredible views of Mount Kilimanjaro. We thought the use of wood throughout the camp was stunning and very resourceful.

The whole experience was amazing and we e

The atmosphere of this Camp is phenomenal. Employing the local Masai is an added bonus. A bit removed from Amboseli . Would not be an issue except the long road in and out of the Camp is beyond rough. Food was average. Limited selections. Dining staff was a bit slow and disorga

We've had the most amazing time here and very sad to be checking out. This is glamping at its worlds best with a view of Mt Kilimanjaro from your bed and then an amazing sunset and watering hole view for meals and drinks. You will see all wildlife just from the amazing overhangin
