Satao Elerai Camp
Where is Satao Elerai Camp Located?
Satao Elerai Camp is located in a quiet, unspoiled, unique setting on a 5000-acre private conservation area 12 km southeast of Amboseli National Park at the foot of Africa’s Largest mountain, Mt Kilimanjaro. The camp looks down onto the Amboseli National Park in one direction and up to Mt Kilimanjaro in the other direction, giving clients what is arguably the best location of any camp in Amboseli.
