For a wildlife lodge, this isa fairly inexpensive place to stay. Off season and cost a bit over $100 a day for half board. That's breakfast and dinner. Food was basic but good. Rooms are also basic but clean and ensuite. Service is decent. No air con but not likely to find that in Voi which is the main entrance... More

Go there. Experience the friendliness and the amazing athmosphere. Expect European standards? Get ready for something more. Something you have never experiences before. We love it! It is so close to the animals - almost scaring, but safe. We will be back after 4 visits so far.

The water hole at night is amazing. You are so close to the animals. The bar, pools and restaurant are perfect for unwinding. The people of very friendly and helpful. High recommended. I didn't get one mosi bite despite the proximity to water and temperature. Great place.

After spending two nights at Serena lodges, we arrived at Voi for our last safari night and it was a great disappointment. The hotel doesn't look nice at all: no decoration, no details, the rooms are beyond simple, with no amenities and even not so clean. Honestly, my first impression was that it looked like a motel :( The common... More

We needed a one night accommodation to break a drive from the coast to Nairobi and chose Voi Wildlife Lodge. We had misgivings as it is a large 430 room establishment whereas our personal preference is for smaller more intimate places. We booked though our Agent and this was easy. We arrived tired and dusty from the drive from Watamu... More

We went to this lodge during a very low season brought on by heightened terrorist activities around the coastal region. The capacity at this hotel is impressive and so the lack of patrons was quite noticeable. The lodge had a skeleton crew but they were quite helpful. The fact that the lodge had a number of watering holes where elephants... More

Poor food quality. And... More

During my Christmas and New Year volunteering stay in Kenya, I also went on a 2days/1night safari to Tsavo East with my volunteering friend Corrinne, staying at Voi Wildlife Lodge. The safari was arranged by Patrick of PD Tours, which I used for the first time. This was my 5th visit to Kenya. After the short rains, the scenery was... More
