Tawi is by far the best place I have stayed in Kenya. Everything about it is perfect, from the moment you arrive it is nothing short of fantastic. Ron, the manager is the perfect host and the staff are just as perfect. It is 5 minute's from Amboseli, but in all honesty the wildlife at the camp is just as... More

I have stayed in several lodges and camps in Kenya and Tanzania, but this was my best experience so far. We came with our teenage son who got his own villa - all the villas are large, comfortable, and well furnished, with enormous bathrooms and huge verandahs - we got up on the second morning to see a beautiful view...

Nothing but praise for this place - such a beautiful lodge in a beautiful setting. Elephants, zebras and camels wonder past your decked terrace as you sip your morning coffee. Some of the best food I've had in Kenya (I live here) and staff are attentive yet discreet. 100% worth going there, don't even hesitate!

Gorgeous lodge in Amboseli. Lovely 3 course meals within a beautiful setting. The swimming pool is fresh water and well worth a dip as the zebras come to drink metres from you. Very relaxing lounge area also with a real fire. Rooms are well equipped with huge verandas for wildlife spotting. Well worth it!

Tawi Lodge and staff are fantastic. Five stars and no less. Best views of Kilimanjaro in the morning and really wonderful staff. Birders need not leave the hotel grounds and animal lovers can relax and just look at the water hole. After having been to many other reserves I would only do one morning drive and a walk later. Just... More

We had an absolutely amazing experience at Tawi Lodge and could not recommend it more highly. Ron, Tawi’s affable and very knowledgeable manager, made a strong and very pleasant first impression. He knows people exceptionally well and very accurately gauges the type of experience you’re looking to have. He immediately put as at ease. Upon arrival, he explained how terrifically... More

We stayed in Tawi in June 2013. We only stayed two nights however it was part of our plan to do a couple of days safari and then have some island time in Tanzania. We stayed overnight in Nairobi first and then got picked up and taken to the domestic airport early doors. On arrival in Amboseli we were greeted... More

Began our two week safari in Kenya and Tanzania here. What a baptism. Mt. Kilimanjaro bathed in the dawn glow is jaw dropping. We started and ended each day listening to the elephants, zebras and other animals rustling about the local watering hole. Felt as though we were one with nature. Couldn't have felt more welcome or cared for. The... More

We stayed at Tawi Lodge for four nights in July 2013 and had the most incredible stay. It's a gorgeous place to stay - our room was incredible - and to have a bath in the beautiful tub looking out over Mt Kili is just spectacular. Manager Ron Guijs was so welcoming and the food each day just incredible. We... More

Tawi Lodge is the hidden secret of Amboseli...few things are better to a nice hot bath, seeing the mighty Kilimanjaro from the tub...a must experience! Apart from this, the bio pool is great, the views, the daily visits from the elephants, friendly staff and delicious food...Staying in the Lodge is almost as good as going on the safari!
