Kilimanjaro, Severin Safari Camp offers a unique landscape with vast savannahs, wooded flood plains and the famous ""red"" elephants.

Pure Kenya safari romance results from our campfire at night next to the waterhole. At Severin Safari Camp the principals of ecological tourism, thus, were protecting the natural resources which is one of the main goals.


    Severin Camp Tsavo Kenya has therefore developed a programme both at Severin Sea Lodge and Severin Safari Camp which is environmental friendly. Severin Safari Camp offers a unique combination of adventure, wellness and relaxation for the sophisticated traveler who loves romantic pampering and unique wildlife experiences. Tsavo West and East National Park is recognized as the thirdlargest national park in the world and rich with great herd’s of elephants, giraffes, zebras and impalas passing through the area insearch for patches of grass. With over 22.000 square kilometers there is a lot to discover during the game drives. We recommend guests to visit the Mzima Springs, Roaring Rocks, Rhino Sanctuary, Poacher’s Lookout, Taita and Chyulu Hills, Chaimu Crater and the various lava caves as the Laviathan. The Khama Rhino Sanctuary Trust is a community based wildlife project, established in 1992 to assist in saving the vanishing rhino and to restore an area formerly teeming with wildlife to its previous natural state, The coordinates of Severin Tsavo Camp are as follows: latitude (2° 59' 54, 54'') and longitude (37° 59' 07, 51''). The camp can be reached by car or plane without difficulty. The park entrance Mtito Andei lies about 40 km away from the Kitani region. The next airstrip lies in short distance (about 25 minutes by car) - the ideal starting point for a flying safari. The flight from Mombasa or Nairobi to Tsavo West National Park takes about an hour. In Tsavo, Severin Camp Africa work closely with the Kenya Wildlife Service, as it is important for us to also educate our guests and partners in the necessity of saving the environment and nature. Severin Camp is the first camp to possess a waste water treatment plant. Waste water from tents and the kitchen is collected and filtered in a natural way with lava stones, gravel and sand. It is then used for watering the 25 hectare lawn within the travel camp. Fresh water is brought to Severin Safari Camp by using their own pipeline which comes directly from Mzima Springs whose water also serves the Kenyan coast with drinking water. Hot water for showering is gained day and night exclusively by solar energy and heat recovery of the power generators. Therefore, for heating the water, we don't need any diesel or electricity. Lamps with low energy bulbs light the camp and at the ""Out of Africa"" A special bin has been placed into every tent to allow waste separation of organic and inorganic waste. Keeping away monkeys is a special environmental task in Africa. At Severin Safari Camp organic waste is dried in so-called ""monkey cages"" which can't be entered by the animals and then burned in lava ovens and composted. All glass bottles as well as plastic waste are brought outside the national park and recycled.


    Severin Camp Accommodation


    Severin Safari Camp offers 27 luxuriously equipped accommodations and 8 Bandas which are self-catering, all located within 25 hectares of bush land. The coffee and tea making facilities, basic beverages of the mini bar as well as butler service is included. Within the generous octagonal tents and suites which assure the true African feeling due to their traditional furnishing you can enjoy privacy and tranquility. Your tent offers the view over the beautiful African landscape with its wild animals that all come to use the water holes without constraint both during the day and night. Masai warriors care for your safety round the clock and also stand representatively for the balance of man and nature at Severin Safari Camp. Guests at Severin Camp have the choice of tented accommodation or solidly constructed cottages. The octagonal tents, with mosquito screen most of the way round, stand on crazy-paved plinths, and are suspended beneath steep, makuti-roofed shelters. Solid-walled, hotel-style bathrooms, with flush toilets, bidets, double washbasins, and white towels and bathrobes, give these facilities a contemporary feel. There are rainfall showers and bathtubs in the tented suites. Water at the lodge comes from a spring, with a pumping station and purification system. It’s fine to drink, but guests are provided with free bottled water anyway. The bedrooms are furnished simply, but comfortably, with ceiling-to-floor mosquito nets over the beds, and a writing table – though the only seating is canvas directors’ chairs. You can charge batteries in the tents between 5.00am and 11.00pm, when the power is on. Electricity is provided by two large and two small generators and times can be extended if requested for light or charging batteries. Hot water is supplied by solar panels with power stored in batteries. They also use steam from the generators to heat water (‘water-heating boilers’).


    The tents are ranged around an arc about 300m long, facing the waterholes and bush. Your focus might be all on the wildlife, but this does mean the tents are only an average of five to seven meters apart, that is one issue that might persuade some people to opt for one of the bandas or tented suites. Two tented ‘Mawenzi’ suites are in the other direction (south) from the main areas and designed for couples on honeymoon safari who want privacy. The four solid-construction cottages, on the north side of the arc of tents (and thus furthest away from the main areas) are designed to feel like a seamless part of the camp – but are for people who want a little more privacy or who are uncertain about the prospect of ‘camping’ in the East African savannah. Their bathrooms are similar to those in the tents, but they have rainfall showers and, in addition, they have an outdoor shower, effectively a small, walled courtyard, open to the sky, again with a rainfall shower. Furnishings are similar to those in the tents. Otherwise, the main points of difference between the tents and the cottages – apart from the obviously solid walls and doors – are an extra lounge area with a sofa, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and the recliners and sun awnings on the decks. Every tent has a fire extinguisher. Every corner of the dining area has one too, plus other areas. Fire alarms are installed and fire drills take place every three months for all staff.


    Severin Safari Camp Bandas


    Severin Safari Camp eight self catering Bandas are equipped with kitchenette, private bathroom and beds with mosquito nets and offers an authentic feeling of Africa. From the canopied veranda you overlook your own fireplace.


    Severin Safari Camp Tent


    All 21 octagonal tents are equipped with running cold and hot water, shower, separate toilet with bidet, comfortable beds with mosquito nets and private terrace. Each tent offers 220 volt electricity, a SEVERIN hair-dryer and a safe.


    Severin Safari Camp Junior Suites


    The four Junior Suites are built in stone and additionally offer a separate living room, sun deck with loungers and a private courtyard with outdoor shower. The Junior Suites are named Mzima Springs, Roaring Rocks, Chyulu Hills and Shetani Cave and provide spacious bathrooms flooded with sunlight with two wash hand basins. The coffee and tea making facilities, basic beverages of the mini bar as well as butler service is included.


    Severin Safari Camp Suites


    The elevated observation decks of Severin Safari Camp Kibo and Mawenzi Suite offer a wonderful view to Mt. Kilimanjaro and the wide savannah of Tsavo. The spacious suites are additionally equipped with a corner bathtub and are perfectly suitable for families due to the adjoining tent.


    Severin Safari Camp Restaurant & bars


    The centre of Severin Safari Camp is located under a cool Makuti roof and accommodates the reception, Safari Boutique, "Thorn Tree" Bar and the "Out of Africa" Restaurant. Unique à la carte menus with a choice of finest African wines await you. The chef is famous for his meat specialties which are prepared on a hot stone or as fondue. End your day at our campfire while enjoying a glass of wine and watching the animals wandering around in the twilight. Severin Safari Camp "Thorn Tree" Bar offers all types of refreshments. Coffee or tea in the early morning as well as a choice of cocktails in the evening. Your drinks can also be served on your private terrace. The campfire in front of the illuminated waterhole assures safari romance under the African sky. Most of Severin Safari Camp fruit and vegetables – plus eggs and honey – come from their own organic farm on the coast. Meal service timings are fairly informal, allowing for guests’ individual safari to Tsavo activities, but the overall standard is high with a good mixture of plain and simple, and more adventurous dishes (typically three or four choices for each course) and usually some vegetarian offerings. Breakfast is always a big buffet, with cereal, fruit, pastries, cold cuts and cheese and a cooked breakfast available from the buffet, with eggs cooked to order. Pancakes and waffles are also available.


    A typical four-course dinner menu includes starters of: avocado and smoked sailfish timbales, tomato and cucumber salad with sour cream dressing, seafood ragout wrapped in a coriander pancake. There’s a choice of soup, for example carrot and ginger, or a consommé. The main course might feature a beef fillet with mushrooms, vegetables and sautéed potatoes, or fish in an orange curry with rice and vegetables. Dinner always includes hot stone, cook-your-own marinated beef and pork, with dipping sauces and side dishes. Desserts might include banana crumble and custard, pancetta on chunky fruit sauce or a flambéed crème caramel. Lunch is much simpler, and perhaps a reflection of the heartiness of breakfast and dinner, and is a mix of plated and buffet service. A typical menu includes a green salad with a choice of dressings, minestrone soup, a cold meat platter with cold roast beef and chicken, ham, salami and pickles, a pasta dish, burgers or fish goujons, followed by fruit salad or profiteroles. Severin Safari Camp’s combination of excellent, hands-on management, harmonious design and architecture and a terrific natural environment has produced a winning safari camp that seems to tick every box without making you feel part of a tourism machine, and the bush walks to Mzima Springs are a huge bonus. If we had one bone to pick it would be that the tents and cottages could be spaced further apart for added privacy.


    Severin Safari Camp Day Game Drives


    The camp conducts game drives using three, open 4x4 safari vehicles (two Land Cruisers and one Land Rover) with three rows of two seats, and a seventh passenger seat at the front. The safari vehicles with erectable panorama roofs and in the company of Severin Safari Camp knowledgeable track reader you come in close contact with the wilderness. The fascinating countryside with its unique animal world will soon have you enthralled. The morning game drive begins at sunrise, by the springs of the Tsavo River - the lifeline of hippos and crocodiles. You set off on the search for the Big Five. For the encounter with lions, leopards, buffalos or rhinos living in the wild you should always have the camera and binoculars at hand. Very nice pictures can be also taken in the late afternoon, because of the very special light. Although it is in a national park, daytime game drives are not the only activities you can do at Severin.


    The stand-out feature is the very nice yin-yang swimming pool and the well-equipped ‘Kenbali’ spa that combines elements of Kenyan tradition with Balinese Hindu massage and therapy. Unusually, for a national park, the camp runs four-hour bush walks with armed KWS rangers and two-hour night drives with spotlights. Severin has special permission to do the night drives in agreed areas. Likewise, the bush walks set off with a Maasai guide (equipped with snacks, water, first-aid kit, radio and whistle) and an armed KWS ranger. You can walk over the lava flow to Mzima Springs or cross the Tsavo River. For both these special activities, the camp needs a minimum of 24 hours’ notice. Although you have the whole of Tsavo West National Park’s 7,000km² to explore – if you have time – the park’s top attraction, Mzima Springs, is just 8km from Severin. At the springs, where the car park and nature trail are guarded by rangers, you can watch hippos and crocs disporting themselves in the shallow, crystal-clear waters beneath shady fig trees. There’s an underwater viewing tank here, sunk on the lake floor at the end of a short pier. It’s not uncommon to see the funny, tiptoe paddling of a hippo, or the sinuous, gliding shape of a croc and you’ll always see the lesser denizens of the springs – hundreds of large fish. The air strip transfer to Severin Safari Camp takes 15 minutes from Kilaguni Lodge airstrip, or 30–45 minutes from Finch Hattons Camp airstrip, depending on game viewing opportunities along the way.

The two Parks are divided by Nairobi Mombasa railway /road and its the ideal destination for people who seek solitude and privacy as well as the chance to explore the wilderness With its proximity to Mombasa (less than 100 km away) it is also a great safari option for those staying on the coast or those planning to relax on Kenya's beaches after a dusty safari.

Tall vegetation here makes game spotting here a little trickier than in some of the other parks. The Big Five can be found in the park along with a fine range of antelope species. The main attractions of the park are the two waterholes, built by the lodges to more or less guarantee that their guests will be treated to fabulous game viewing.
