Fodor's Review

Between Tsavo East and West, this former hunting camp (formerly Westermann's Safari Camp) is a great base to explore both parks. The Tozers, who live here permanently, have transformed this delightful getaway into a luxury destination that's simply but tastefully decorated with en-suite facilities. Accommodations are at the foot of a rocky kopje (small hill) that look out toward plains in the foreground and mountains in the background. It's all about personal service and individual attention here. The slate, stone, and thatch bar and restaurant with rustic wooden furniture is surrounded by flowering plants and trees—you can't help but feel immediately at home here. Food is homemade, often homegrown, and delicious. The camp doesn't offer game drives, but you can go for a walk in the bush, climb up the kopje, or just sit with the tipple of your choice and watch the spectacular sunsets.
