Myself, my girlfriend and 2 friends booked a two night stay at Lions' Bluff's new tented sister camp, Leopards Lair, which just opened in December of 2015. The facilities were really nice for a low cost tented camp, but soon after arriving, it started downpouring (strange for dry season), and they decided to upgrade us to the lodge to keep... More

Lion's bluff is uniquely positioned on a bluff overlooking the Lumo conservancy and, on clear days, Kilimanjaro. It has the best views in Lumo conservancy/Taita Hills conservancy, which border Tsavo West. Food is fresh and expertly prepared, rooms are carefully appointed with great detailing - good mattresses, quality linen and most of all, amazing views. This is a very personalised,... More

The 360 degree view of wild Africa is a beautiful and ever more difficult thing to find but here it is and you can sit and admire the miles of wilderness from the comfort of your own verandah in this amazing lodge. The rooms are uniquely constructed from all natural materials and cling to the Bluff edge so each has... More

Lions Bluff is an amazing lodge in the Lumo wildlife conservency on the edge of tsavo west. The views from the lodge itself are spectacular with views of Mt kilimanjaro in the mornings and of the wide spread savanna in which the lodge is situated. In the rainy seasons you can sit in the comfort of the lodge and watch... More

This is one of the best places I have ever stayed. It has the most amazing views, really lovely rooms and delicious food. We went on lots of great game drives, watching the elephants emerge out of the bushes to drink at sunset was just one of many highlights. Hope to go back again soon!

Imagine driving through the bush, going up on a small road, with no place in sight. All of the sudden you turn the corner and see this amazing of set of bandas clinging to the cliffs.

This is the second time we have spent Christmas at Lions Bluff. Great service and staff, very comfortable room. The location is second to none in the middle of a conservancy on the top of a hill. Great wildlife too !

It took us an all day game drive with our fantastic guide David Darnborough from Watamu, to arrive at Lions Bluff. We were in an open backed jeep and so had a brilliant view all the way. The amount of wildlife en- route was spectacular. Although we were tired and a lovely shade of Tsavo red when we arrived, we... More

The location was the best, being able to see elephants in the distance was beautiful. The accommodation was well equipped and very comfortable to sleep in. Only downside to this place was we had 35 ppl book the area and we're not told they lacked space so it meant that a few friends had to sleep in a makeshift tent... More
