The Severin Safari Camp is located in Tsavo West National Park, the biggest game reserve in East Africa, about 250 km from Mombasa and Nairobi. With view to Mt. Kilimanjaro, it offers a unique landscape with vast savannahs, wooded flood plains and the famous ""red"" elephants.
The coordinates 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 flight safari. The flight from Mombasa or Nairobi to Tsavo West National Park takes about an hour.
Our camp is not fenced and therefore perfectly integrated into nature. From your tent you enjoy a wonderful view to the landscape and the wild animals wandering around the waterhole. Massai warriors assure your safety round the clock and also stand representatively for the balance of man and nature at Severin Safari Camp.
Besides lions, buffalos, leopards and countless bird species, the biggest elephant population of Kenya lives in Tsavo.
It only takes 10 km to visit Mzima Springs, a lake with crocodiles and hippos. From the Poacher's Lookout nearby, our guests enjoy an awesome view to the endless vastness of the national park.
Pure safari romance results from our campfire at night next to the waterhole. At Severin Safari Camp we practise the principals of ecologial tourism, thus, protecting our natural ressources which is one of our main goals. We have therefore developed a programme both at Severin Sea Lodge and Severin Safari Camp which is environmental friendly.
In Tsavo, we 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 Safari 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 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.
International environmental awards prove our commitment to sustainable eco tourism.
