Along the way, the journey passes along Chyulu Hills and the vast African Savannah.  Overnight stay will be in Severin Safari Camp, which is located in the center of the Kitani game reserve, an animal-rich region of the Tsavo River.  Within the camp awaits luxury and comfort.  All tents are equipped with flowing cold and warm water, shower, comfortable beds and own terrace.  In the evening you will be spoiled with an á la Carte dinner in the restaurant.  The game specialties offered are from the African bush and prepared on hot stones or as a Fondue.  End the day with the perfect Safari-romance by sitting before an evening campfire in front of the beautifully lit water hole and blanketed under the starlit, African sky.

Today is the day to sleep in!  After many days of enjoying wonderful safaris, this day is completely dedicated to you and your physical relaxation.  You can relax and enjoy a fantastic backdrop of wilderness from the pool, or enjoy a relaxing massage in the KENBALI Spa.  Inspired by both the African wilderness and century old Southeast Asian relaxation techniques, the Spa is an oasis of peace and relaxation.  In late afternoon awaits a special experience for you…a trip to Poacher' s Lookout.  This is an old hiding place for poachers from which you will have a breath-taking view of Kilimanjaro standing 5,892 meter high.  With some luck you can enjoy a cloudless sunset with a sparkling wine and canapés.  During our journey back to the lodge, you will experience the African Savannah at night, an unforgettable experience!  After this exciting day in the wilderness, a culinary dinner will await you at the camp.
