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.
