Severin Safari Camp

Severin Safari Camp is one of just three camps in Kenya’s remote Tsavo West National Park, wedged between Mzima Springs and the mighty Tsavo River.

One of only three tented camps in remote Tsavo West National Park, Severin Safari Camp is wedged on very flat terrain between the famously clear, isolated Mzima Springs and the mighty Tsavo River. Designed to blend into the natural surroundings, the camp contains 27 simple but comfortable tented suites with private verandas overlooking the pristine bush.

As the premises are unfenced, guests are accompanied by Maasai warriors while walking between their rooms and the main restaurant, bar and lounge area, with the opportunity to spot the camp’s many wild residents en route. There is also a swimming pool and a day spa where massages can be enjoyed.

Game drives in the prolific reserve take place in open 4WD vehicles. Unusual for a property within a national park, Severin Safari Camp offers guests the opportunity to participate in half-day bush walks accompanied by armed rangers as well as interesting night vehicle safaris. The crystalline Mzima Springs are also worth a visit, for its resident crocodiles and hippos.

Severin Safari Camp is approximately 250km or just over 5 hours from Nairobi by road. Alternatively, you can take a scheduled or charter flight from Nairobi Wilson Airport to the nearest airstrip (Finch Hattons or Kilaguni), around 30 minutes’ drive from the camp.

Kenya Overview

What are the best things to do in Kenya?
Kenya has so many exciting and wonderful experiences to enjoy that the options are endless. Top experiences include:

  • Witnessing the great wildebeest migration (September to October) in the Masai Mara.
  • Exploring Samburu Game Reserve with its big game as well as rare endemic species.
  • Breakfast with the Rothschild’s giraffes at Giraffe Manor.
  • Thousands of flamingos and pelicans on the Rift Valley lakes .
  • Getting close to rhino in Laikipia.
  • Meeting the Samburu or Maasai and learning about their culture.

What is the climate like in Kenya?
The highland areas have a temperate climate (22°- 25°C) due to the high altitude, however  it is hotter in low-lying areas like the Rift Valley (30°- 35°C). The coast is hot and humid most of the year. Kenya has two rainy seasons, the ‘short rains’ that take place over 5-6 weeks in November and December and the ‘long rains’ that occur during March to May.

How do I get to Kenya?
Kenya’s major capital Nairobi is the main entry point into the country. Major airlines that fly into Nairobi include British Airways, Etihad Airways, Emirates, Lufthansa and Air France. From Nairobi, Kenya Airways offers flights to other popular African destinations including South Africa, Uganda, Rwanda and Zimbabwe.

What can I combine Kenya with?
Kenya is often combined with neighbouring Tanzania, and with Uganda or Rwanda for a trek to see the gorillas. A few days on the beautiful beaches of the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar is a very popular way to end a Kenyan safari.
