Reviewed 9 April 2012

In our whole trip, Sentrim Lodge provided the best accommodation experience. The location is fantastic and the tents are nice, spacious and clean. The staff is very friendly and provide great service.

Tennts were comfortable and the food was good basic italian. Lots of Italian tourists arrive for lunch. Little wildlife seen apart from crocs and hippos and two elephants over 2 days. We liked the camp but the major drawback is the distance from park gate -circa10 kms- over poor and heavily corrugated tracks/roads.

We stayed here for one night. The place has tents all around and the dining area looks out to the open fields and a watering hole. The tents near the fence has better view as you are looking at the jungle from there. Our tent was near the dining area. The tents by itself is very spacious and the wash room is very artistically done.

What we loved about this place was the service and the small touches. They set a table for two with candles for us even when we did not tell them to. The food was very good and the chef prepared pizza in front of you.

There is a lot of choice if you are a vegetarian. There are loads of beaver birds in the compound and it is a pleasant sight to see them chirp away.

Room Tip: Take a room closer to the fence that looks out at the jungle. They have electricity in the evening...

We stayed at the Sentrim tented lodge for 1 night in October as a group of 8 (4 couples), on arrival we were greeted and given refreshments and towels and shown to our tents. They had put us all together and looking directly out onto the waterhole. Within seconds two giraffe popped along for a drink and through out the stay there was always some kind of wildlife there, elephants, baboons, various other monkeys, in fact every time i looked there was something else. The staff were really helpful and did everything they could to make our stay fantastic. The food was basic but good and a variety of choice. Its a basic tented lodge, that gives you a feel of the real Tsavo and Africa. If you want 5 star luxury then look elsewhere, but if what your going for is to see the animals, enjoy a safari, sit around a camp fire exchanging stories, get personnel treatment and get a good nights sleep then its fantastic and i would definitely return.

My wife had a dream of camping one day, so we went to this camp, only for one night. At the time we were there we turned out to be the only guests... The staff was very friendly and helpfull, but still I am not that keen on camping myself so I wasn't really looking forward to it. The tents have a big bed in it a separate shower and toilet and all have two chairs in front of the tent so you can enjoy the view. We looked right on the spot where the animals came for a drink, unfortunately for us we only saw herds of elephants, but the staff told me that all kinds of animals pass by including lions.... (at night we could hear them from a distance).

The food is not great, very basic you might say, but for me that goes with camping, that's why i prefer not to.... As we were the only guests the service was great, no complaints there and for a tent it was also clean enough. It's just that you have to like camping, if so then you will love this too!.

I spent one night at the former Tarhi camp. The location is excellent. 50 meter from the camp is a water whole which attracts a great number of animals. We saw at least 50 Elephants during our dinner.

The camp is very clean and the staff very friendly.

Food was a bit disappointing. Very basic and not much flavour.

Stayed here late last year and boy what a mistake. The location is not bad, you have to drive thru a ferw bushes here and there to reach it. The problem is the camp itself. VERY basic. If you stay in the tents closest to the bar, restaurant and water hole, then guests will be able to see you get changed after you've showered!! You can see right into these tents from the bar etc area. Why the management have not seen this, I do not know. The tents look very old and dated and the decor inside is not very appealing to the eye at all.

The food was mediocre at best. The staff did their best.

Sentrim, as far as I understand, are known for their budget, bottom of the range hotels and camps. But my advice is, if you are travelling to Kenya and going on safari, then it is definitely worth your while spending a bit more money and avoiding camps like this.
