Traveller Reviews

  • We had the most wonderful time at Somalisa!! The closeness of the elephants was something we never imagine could happen. The service and the food was amazing. Our guide Ray was very nice and knowledgeable. Thanks for a great experience.

  • Somalisa Camp was a magical place and our guides were excellent.

    Chris Waters, July 2013
  • The contrast at Somalisa was great, once we got used to there not being any running water. We saw loads of animals – we didn’t like having to share a vehicle with other people though. The hospitality at both camps was excellent. We were always picked up on time, the flights were very good, the staff everywhere saw to our every need. We really couldn’t have asked for more.
