About Loyk Tsavo Safari Camp

Loyk Tsavo Safari Camp is a comfortable tented camp located in Tsavo East National Park in Kenya on the banks of the Athi River. History was made in this area during the building of Railway Bridge. Two man-eating lions hindered the work on the bridge. History records that Colonel Patterson shot both lions in 1898. Many of the workmen died as a result of the attacks. Loyk Tsavo Safari Camp will allow you to experience the atmosphere of African adventure and a unique experience of staying in the lap of Nature Kenya.

Tucked away on the banks of Athi River in Tsavo East National Park, Loyk Tsavo Safari Camp is the perfect escape for an extended bush stay, a stop en-route in your safari or an overnight bush break from the beaches of the Kenya coast.

The camp features 20 en-suite tents, all with spacious verandahs offering views of the river. Each tent is fully furnished with one king-size bed or two single beds. On advanced request, an additional bed can be added to make a triple accommodating a child sharing or third adult. Tents have solar generated electricity for lighting and a covered verandah with chairs and tables. The tents are permanently built on raised cement foundations and a thatched roof provides additional protection as well as natural cooling. Our eco-friendly design provides a low impact, truly natural experience without the need to sacrifice comfort.

All tents face the Arthi River with the backdrop of the Yatta Plateau, the world’s longest lava flow formed from the Ol Doinyo Sabuk Mountain which runs 290 km along the western boundary of the National Park above the Arthi River. All tents are surrounded by riverine vegetation, which is maintained in its natural state and is where animals come to feed. Hippo and elephant dung are often seen together with footprints near the tents.

Meals can be served on the banks of the river, al fresco with the shade of trees or in the comfort of our restaurant. There is also a shaded seating area near the reception as well as a fully licensed bar serving a variety of popular beverages and a restaurant serving three daily meals featuring international cuisine prepared from fresh local Kenya meat and produce.

Loyk Tsavo Safari Camp has a number of activities available to our guests. These include nature walks with a Maasai guide within the camps grounds, sundowners, bush breakfasts and dinners, and a movie after dinner.

We were on a 3 days safari. We chose Loyk because of its location. We were satisfied with everything. Perfect service by booking, and in the camp. We hope we could visit Loyk Safari Camp again.
