Patterson's Safari Camp is situated on the picturesque board of the Athi River in Tsavo East National Park. 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 Col. Patterson shot both lions in 1898. Many of the workmen died as a result of the attacks.
Patterson's Safari Camp will allow you to experience the atmosphere of African adventure and a unique experience of staying in the lap of Nature Kenya. In the evenings one can sit on the 'beach terrace' which is located 10m from the waters of the river. From here you can watch hippos as they laze in the water and listen to their snorts when they argue with each other. Crocodiles also abound especially the infamous 'giants' of the Tsavo River. You might even be one of the lucky ones and get to see a leopard lapping up the water as he keeps a nervous watch on the nearby crocs.
