The Satao Elerai project is a community project that has been a long time in the making. The project has been a concerted effort between the Satao Elerai, The African Wildlife Foundation and The Elerai community of which its 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 the future generations.
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.
One of the hugest advantages of Satao Elerai Camp is that it is being located on its own private conservation area and guests have the chance to view wildlife in private surroundings. In addition, the camp also offers its guests the chance to enjoy spectacular bush sundowners, night game drives and game walks on the conservancy.
The rooms at Satao Elerai Camp were constructed and designed to ensure that the guests’ stay will be in complete luxury. Huge beds with top quality mattresses and pillows and a large luxurious duvet ensure that guests will sleep through the night in total comfort.
Large sliding doors open out onto the guests’ own private verandah overlooking the plains below and Amboseli National Park.
Each room has its own bathroom with a view, and designed using natural rock and acacia wood thus revealing a unique design. Elephants, giraffes and zebras are seen most days from the comfort of the guests’ rooms.
Dinners at the Camp are served a la carte and using locally grown vegetables and fruits, the chefs prepare a wide variety of dishes to suit all tastes. On a clear night, tables are set out on the terrace where clients can enjoy a meal under the stars.
Regularly Mountain Kilimanjaro will be clear early evening and can be seen lit up by the moon from the guests’ dinner tables. However if guests have any special requests for meals, they are advised to let the camp know in advance and the chefs would be happy to meet the guests’ requirements.
