Ziwa is a lovely, peaceful place. The children enjoyed the trampoline, swimming pool and climbing frame! For us adults it was relaxing. We enjoyed the fire at night. A great way to bond as a family and meet new people.

The staff at Ziwa Bush Lodge pulled out all the stops to make our recent two-night anniversary getaway wonderful! The highlight was the private poolside dinner, surrounded by paper lanterns and a full moon. See photos. Thanks, Ziwa!

I spent one night in Ziwa Bush Lodge during my safari self-drive across Kenya. Despite a very late arrival I got a very good service and an extremely nice room. The lamb chops for dinner were delicious, thanks to the chief. The territory and the rooms are in typical African-safari style, the one which safari traveler is actually looking for.... More

Hi, We are very happy to hear that you mostly enjoyed your experience of Ziwa Bush Lodge, however unhappy that it didn't maintain its high standards of a peaceful getaway that it usually provides for its guests. We apologise greatly that we were unable to sort things with the hot water, this is extremely rare to occur and we are... More

peaceful, scenic, great staff, great accommodation, good food. Kids love love loved the new pool and the idea of "glamping". The interaction with the kids from EAMO was a bonus for my little Kenyan kids.

A great place to stay. Relaxing, friendly, good food and wine. Good rooms, sowers, facilities. Great 'African' feel to the main Lodge for dining and relaxing. No television - bliss. Very big treat and surprise was the hot water bottle in the bed!

We've visited Ziwa twice now, and had good experiences both times. Food seemed to be a bit better the first time, but I understand they have two different chefs with different skills. Ralph and Krista are great hosts, though not always available on-site.

Here you are meet by lovely staff who speak good English as well as understanding the fast Australian speech. You feel extremely relaxed in a touch of paradise even though you are in a 3rd world country. Would go back and stay again in a heart beat. This place need more people to visit and right reviews.
