After a long drive through from Amboseli via the Tsavo West National Park, we arrived at the sanctuary and drove up the bluff to the Lodge. We were greeted by a stunning view overlooking the Serengeti Plains and the Lumo Sanctuary - cold towels were offered and gladly accepted, we were covered in lava dust from the drive through Tsavo,...

We visited Lion's Bluff as part of an 8 day safari trip for our honeymoon early September '14. It was by far the best location, room and view on offer from 6 different safari lodges we visited. And we stayed at more expensive places in the Masai Mara. My wife wanted luxury, but I want rustic character rather than posh... More

About 30 of us descended upon the lions bluff lodge in August this year as part of extended wedding celebrations. This is definitely an amazing thing to do as part of a big group. My partner and I then went on and did safaris at the Maasai Mara and Lake Nakuru but for an all round experience, Lions Bluff was... More

A first class location, lodge, accommodation, staff and service. Oh and the wildlife is fantastic too - Leopards, Elephants, Aardwolf, more birds than I can remember and much much more. A fantastic three days at Lions Bluff. Thank-you.

We have been several times to Lions Bluff, and it is one of those places where you will never get tired of going back, and on the contrary it gets better every time. The location is set in a scene that comes out of a movie (like Out of Africa). The views, the hospitality, tranquility and friendly service, makes you... More

Our family vacation to Kenya was perfect with our visit to Lions Bluff Lodge. The staff easily accommodated our group of 11 people. Naomi welcomed us as soon as we arrived with a warm wash cloth and fresh mango juice. All staff was friendly and the food made at the lodge was delicious!! We celebrated my birthday our first night... More

Great Lodge on top of a hill with stunning views. The rooms are built on stilts along the ridge and are a combination of a tent under a wooden roof and a masoned bathroom. Very charming and lovingly outfitted. The food was the best on our 5 days Safari. Although - or maybe because - there is not a big... More

We loved every second of our stay at Lions Bluff. Ian Leckie, his wonderful family and smiling staff were welcoming, friendly and great to chat to. The location high above the savannah gives panoramic views from each rondavel room. While enjoying a delicious dinner, a hot water bottle was popped into our beds each evening, a welcome surprise when we... More

We hope to see you back one... More

I self drove from Nairobi and saw elephant almost immediately I entered the park. As i drove along the high ridge and saw the breath taking views of the conservancy below i knew this was an excellent choice. The customer service was exceptional and Ian even had me join his family table for dinner as I was on my own.... More

From the time Naomi greeted us as we got out of our Land Cruiser we felt at home at Lions Bluff. Ian and Helen run a great camp, and care about the local area and the people of Kenya. We traveled with our twenty year old children and they found the Lions Bluff and the local area Life Changing. The... More
