this place is the best location ever for game viewing and its position nestled high up with expansive views of Tsavo is awesome and spectacular. The lodge itself however is rundown, the rooms are adequate, a little tired , old and dated. The meals are buffet style and not much choice. But this place is not to be missed, don't... More

The lodge is in the park and what i loved most is the under tunnels leading you to the borehole where you see Elephant and other animals at a close range of 3 meters. I loved the scene where the lions were chasing the buffalo for a catch. really fighting but at last the buffalo was overwhelmed. the next morning... More

I've never stayed at a place quite like this one! I love going to the Elephant Cove (my personal name for it) where you can see elephants drink out of the water hole right in front of you. The food is par but they did have an excellent ham - I recommend making little ham sandwiches - the best! The... More

As we did last year, our safari had us staying at voi for the midday meal and overnight. The views from the restaurant remain as spectacular as ever and everywhere was neat and tidy. The restaurant was very quiet though, there was only 11 of us in the very big restaurant for the evening meal. The food remains the weak... More

We did a tour of most of the Kenya game parks during our stay and Voi stood head and shoulders over the rest. It was booked by our driver and we were not disappointed. We found previously that booking through an Agency that they compromised on the quality of the lodgings to boost their margins so better to book direct.... More

I visit Tsavo almost every month and almost always stay at Voi Safari Lodge. The view this place offers towards the yatta escarpment is simply unparalleled by any other lodge/hotel i have been to in my 12 years in Africa. The rooms are slightly better than basic but have one of the biggest windows you will see in a hotel... More

We have stayed at this lodge on 8 occassions for lunch enroute to other lodges. ok ish. but never stayed overnight until this time. On comparison with some of the other lodges, i found it very poor standard. The rooms had great views, but were very dated, the shower and bathroom was very tiny. and in need of updating, the...

This lodge is very basic but is in a prime location. The elephants walk down to its watering hole on a daily basis and it's amazing to watch them starting as a dot on the horizon and moving together in a perfect uniform herd - fantastic photo opportunities. Other wildlife were a bit cheekier, the local monkeys can carry out... More
