  1. General Comments


This is a unique luxury tented camp built with the environment and eco-system in mind with the use of solar energy and minimal use of permanent materials.

It offers luxurious tents facilities comprising twenty one fully furnished en suites in the heart of Tsavo wilderness.The tents are set in rows facing the Voi River.

The property is located within Tsavo East National Park, one of the world's largest game reserves, providing undeveloped wilderness homes to vast numbers of animals and over 500 bird species recorded in the area.

The style of the lodge are tented camps with no fencing from the larger wilderness all meant to retain the park’s natural ecosystem. We have relied on the cost approach because the camp is currently not operating at an efficient level. The income approach would therefore have returned a distorted value.
