My family and I stayed here and had the most amazing time. The views are, of course, some of the best you're ever likely to see but it is the staff that make the place what it is; they're friendly, helpful and will do anything to make your stay memorable. We found it clean and well-equipped, and the food was... More

Lions Bluff is great place to go to with friends and family. The setting is absolutely stunning, with a 360 degree view of Tsavo. Accommodation, service and food was great. Will definitely come back!!

I have stayed at Lions Bluff Lodge repeatedly and have always had a spectacular experience. The warm atmosphere created here is very unique ....as is the view which is mind-blowing! I've heard of a few friends who have tried some of the larger lodges (which are often more expensive due to hidden extras) and they have always regretted not staying... More

Absolutely fantastic. The views are amazing, the rooms are amazing & although cold at night, they were very cosy. The staff left us a hot water bottle in the bed whilst we were at dinner which was a lovely touch. This has to be the most unique & truely fantastic place we've stayed. Highly recommend it!

We stayed at Lion's Bluff for 3 nights and it really is something superb. Having both been on safari before we can say it was without a doubt the best one we've ever done. As well as the amazing game, the staff are incredibly helpful, indiscriminately friendly and a lot of fun. The food as well, was some of the... More

We love Lions Bluff. It's beautiful. It's fun. It's secluded. The tents are on stilts. The staff are friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. The game and birds are breath taking. It's bijou and very very special. The conservancy fees are more reasonable than national park fees.

... really peaceful lodge (no crowds) ... exceptional staff ... good filling food ... although the visit was during a relatively dry period I was surprised at the number of elephants in and around the Lumo Conservancy

Patrick Glad that you like the peace of the Bluff. We are in an Elephant migratory corridor. As human population squeezes these corridors we get more and more elephant at strange times. No idea how the other animals will survive the change in vegetation........ but meanwhile our guests experience incredible Elephant sightings. More

Well beyond all our expectations. We stayed three nights with our whole family - three generations and could not have asked for more. Nothing was too much trouble for the very friendly staff, who were so flexible and happy to tailor game drives, bar b q's bush breakfasts to suit us. Excellent food and all in a setting that most...

We camped at their beautiful campsite then had most of our meals at the lodge. The views are breath taking and near 360 degree. Food is good, staff are very helpful, the owners are charming and the whole package is great value.
