Colonel John Patterson with one of the mane-less man eating lions he Killed in Tsavo in 1898

Patterson's Camp is built on a site where the original railway gangs worked to run the line up to Kisumu. Legend has it that many of the workers (mostly imports from India) were mauled or eaten by lions here. Lieutenant Colonel J H Patterson was an Indian army officer with long experience in railway construction who was sent to build a bridge over the Tsavo River with the expectation that he would be all done in four to five months time. A year went by, however before the bridge was ready for traffic.


This was mainly thanks to the lions that kept terrorizing the workers and thereby delaying work. Pair of lions - a male and his mate (relatively named Ghost & Darkness respectively) - were particularly notorious and gained the sort of notoriety customarily reserved for the dragons of medieval legend. In his killing them, Patterson emerged from the duel as something of a nineteenth century St. George.

Patterson's Camp is named in memory of those days long gone.

Location and Description of Patterson's Camp

Patterson's Safari Camp is located in savo East National Park on its own private 18 Km stretch of wooded valley through which the Galana River flows. The river is right on your doorstep. In the evenings one can sit on the 'beach terrace' which located 10m from the waters of the river.

Entry to the Patterson Safari Camp - Tsavo East

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. In the dark the guards are equipped with powerful spotlights and are always very keen to show visitors animals coming down to the river to drink water. 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. Patterson's Safari Camp is located in an area seeped in history and teeming with wildlife, the camp is the perfect place to get away from it all and explore one of the world's largest game sanctuaries
