Arriving at Tawi, the staff instantly made us feel comfortable and right at home. They had beautiful rooms prepared for us overlooking Mt. Kilimanjaro and a watering hole that would attract elephants, zebras, giraffes, and lots of other animals. It made you feel like you were living among the animals. The food- I can go on for hours about the... More

I write this approximately 24hrs after having left Tawi Lodge in Amboseli on the notepad of an iPhone taking an internal Kenyan flight. We all try to write reviews but never seem to get around to it. Anyway, finally I can do something more productive than read inflight magazines. The journey there. Myself and a friend drove down from Nairobi... More

The Tawi Lodge was beautiful, peaceful, in a great location, the food was excellent, the accommodations were very good, and the employees were very courteous. We enjoyed the pool, also. I recommend it!

Yes, it can be done. As a family of five; Kids aged two, seven and eight years old - we are acutely aware of the noise and general annoyance little ones might cause other guests. This was, as far as I know, no problem at Tawi Lodge. Partly because of the idyllic and secluded surroundings, but mostly because of the... More

We have stayed several (3) times at Tawi and every time it is a great pleasure (that's why we come back!). We love the magnificent secluded spot, where it is always a surprise to find which game will come to visit the watering hole. The professional friendly staff, incl the very competent manager, makes the stay extra enjoyable. The solar... More

We started out our safari experience at Tawi Lodge and we're delighted with it. We were the only guests there that night and were in the first cottage. The bed was very comfortable and the bath tub was divine, our only tub on safari. The food was very plentiful and well prepared and delicious. We invited Menno, the manager, to... More

Friends raved about this place and I had been trying to go for a while. Unfortunately, it fell far short of our expectations, which, admittedly, are high. Suffice to say the service we experienced was poor, a cross between Faulty Towers and Holidays From Hell! While the staff were generally nice, the manager was quite unfriendly and rather rude. Which... More

Dear katesmugsy, Thank you very much for your comments which we, at Tawi, take very seriously as it is one of the ways for us to keep improving our services to our guests. On the other hand, we are sad for not having been able to transmit to you the unique experience which Tawi has represented to nearly all the... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Tawi for 2 nights (too short!!) in April. We were welcomed by the staff and the manager (Mennow? not sure of spelling, who took every oppurtunity to make sure everything was perfect) who were all very friendly indeed. We hadn't expected to find such a gem! Fantastic views of Mt. Kilimanjaro right from... More

Upon our arrival at Tawi Lodge we were given a very warm welcome by the very proud Manager and his friendly staff. We were shown around the beautiful grounds and to our Cottages which were a welcome sight. The stunning Cottages had a wonderful view of the highest mountain in Africa even from the comfort of your bed and bath... More
