Situated in Tsavo East National Park, the Camp holds a significant place in history as the oldest camp in the park. Its location is intertwined with a fascinating story. During the construction of the Railway Bridge over the Tsavo River in 1898, which was part of the renowned Ugandan Railway project, a pair of Maneless male lions claimed the lives of approximately 140 workers over a three-month period. The relentless pursuit to eliminate the threat culminated in the successful hunting of the first lion on December 9th, 1898, during a night expedition.
Man-Eaters Camp is an exclusive lodge consisting of 31 fully furnished en-suite tents, all positioned to overlook the picturesque Tsavo River in Tsavo East/West. Among the tent options are eight family tents, equipped with a double bed and a single bed for a child. These tents feature four-poster beds with mosquito nets, with the single bed even accommodating an adult. Additionally, there is one wheelchair-friendly tent conveniently located near the bar, restaurant, and lounge area of the camp.
All the tents are thoughtfully designed with ample ventilation and spacious interiors. The standard tents boast a large king-size bed (6ft x 6ft), while the family tents offer one double king-size bed and an additional single bed. Each tent provides a captivating view of the Tsavo River, allowing guests to relish uninterrupted vistas from their private accommodation. The tents are furnished with locally crafted furniture that harmoniously blends with the magnificent natural surroundings.
