Description
Satao Camp is arguably one of the best locations in Africa for observing elephants from your tent. The atmosphere in the evenings with the Impala and Waterbuck sitting all around you is something quite ...More unique and special. With only 20 tents Satao Camp is small and private. It is located away from the main congested areas of Tsavo so one can enjoy the privacy of being at one with nature. This is a true Safari Experience. Less
