Voyager Ziwani, Tsavo West


Located on a 30,000-acre private farm on the western edge of Tsavo West National Park, Voyager Ziwani sits on the edge of a small, secluded dam on the Sante River. The camp’s environs are home to hundreds of basking hippos, while a short drive will deposit you among the big game of one of Kenya’s wildest and least explored national parks. The journey to Voyager Ziwani involves a scenic two-hour drive from Mtito Andei or Voi, or a direct flight of 20 minutes from Mombasa or 30 minutes from Nairobi.


Of the camp’s 25 tents, 16 sit on the southern bank of the Sante River and nine on the northern. The spacious tents offer the classic ambience of a traditional African camping safari, with large secluded verandahs overlooking the wildlife rich shores. Each tent is comfortably furnished with double or twin beds and has a modern en suite bathroom with a flush toilet and piping hot shower. Situated in the shadow of majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, on the edge of one of Kenya’s least explored parks, Voyager Ziwani offers a uniquely personal and adventurous safari experience
