Wow - what a view when you arrive. The only thing better than the view from the terrace, as we sipped a cold Tusker just after arriving, was the view from the room (number 2), which was even better. If you want to experience the majesty of the plains of Africa spread out before you, as they have been for... More

I work here and the wow factor of the view still stuns every morning! We have the pleasure of watching folk unwind from their busy lives just looking out over the amazing African expanse. And then there is the amazing wildlife and community involvement ..... We hope to see you back at the BLUFF one day More

Was treated to a visit here during a visit to Diani Beach. It was a long trek up here but totally worth it. The views are amazing from the huts and the bar and restaurants. Sitting out on the deck the incredible views are breath taking. We were lucky to have a clear day and saw Mt Killimanjaro in the... More

With the rains so early this year the sanctuary is an incredible green and covered in wild flowers! Those that are lucky enough to se Mt Kilimanjaro in the crystal clear mornings have been in for a treat, though the lack of snow is alarming. I am glad that you enjoyed Lions Bluff and its amazing variety of wildlife. Come... More

We travelled many times between Nairobi and Mombasa to visit family went to the Tsavo National park but never to Lions Bluff - I recommend it as one of the places to be added the bucket list - not too many places you can wake up to the sound of playful elephants step out onto your veranda and watch them...

Every hut has the same amazing, great, beautiful view. You sit out on the verandah and watch the scenery and watch little lovely bush bucks around your hut, as well as baboons. Do not forget to bring your binoculars, because there is so much wildlife to spot out on the savanna. The only thing not nice about is, is maintenance.... More

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Bluff. Yes there is a high price to having wooden platforms raised from the hillside. I assure you that all structural pole are regularly changed! With the harsh sun and tropical rain storms maintenance is continuous and we have an extensive ongoing program covering this. Just as the new... More

We loved our stay at Lions Bluff Tsavo West. Waking up in our banda with the sounds of nature all around us, seeing baboons play only a few metres away from our terrace, the incredible views of the savannah, kilimanjaro and sitting around the cosy fire pit at night where all unforgettable experiences. After stating that we where vegetarians, the... More

I cannot say enough good things about this place, it is amazing! I am living and working in Kenya so my girlfriend flew out from the US to do a safari/beach trip through the country and Lions Bluff was our second stop during our safari portion. Driving up the mountain to the lodge we knew we were in for a... More

Wow! thank you for your positive review. The staff really appreciate the response to their service. Interesting comment re fan in room. We were, until February, reliant on a generator at night so could not consider fans during the day or late night. However to improve service and do our bit on the eco front have switched to solar power... More

Lovely setting and location. Amazing views and wonderful staff. The bandas are beautifully presented and stepping out to the balcony offers you very special views. If you are lucky you may see Mt.

I can't imagine a better place to have spend christmas than Lions Bluff, a remote yet luxurious lodge in the heart of the Kenyan savanna. I have never seen such stunning views, you can see for miles across the open plains in every direction. I will never forget the experience of sleeping in a comfortable four poster bed looking out...

I can't recommend Lion's Bluff highly enough. The views are breathtaking, stretching for almost 360 degrees out over the plains and all the way to Kilimanjaro. The bandas are beautifully presented and very comfortable, perched on the edge of the bluff so that you can admire the scenery from the privacy of your own balcony (or even lying in bed).... More

The community and the builders did all the hard work putting up the lodge on this fantastic hill. All we have to do is provide the hospitality and help you enjoy this special place in the Tsavo eco-system. We look forward to hosting you at the Bluff again. More
