I see this place gets top reviews already. I agree, It sits on a stony hill above some great areas for game and bird watching. If you get the right tent/room you may be able to look down the hill from where your lodge is and see elephants bathing in a water hole below. Food is great. Staff is very... More

If only going to Mombasa well it is very easy from there to get to...The scenery is breath taking. Lots to see.. The... More

Lions Bluff was our final stay on safari on honeymoon and we loved it. The game viewing is fantastic - we saw a great deal (although it was much busier that Tsavo East) and the community feel in the lodge really adds a special charm. The views are unbeatable and the location of the meals is simply spectacular. Thank you... More

Having just spent the most fantastic 2 days, we can not recommend this highly enough, with great staff, fantastic game drives, so much game, and the best views and comfortable clean bandas. Definitely not to be missed. Run for benefit of local community.

Bruce, so pleased that the Bluff lived upto expectation. It is fun working in such a beautiful location and the community aspect adds to its usefulness. This corner of the Tsavo Eco system has a fantastic variety of game from the big to the very small so that even in the rains guests stand a great chance of seeing Africa's... More

This is simply the loveliest place to go on safari. We've been dozens of times and never tire of the view, the variety of wild life, the homely and welcoming atmosphere and the most luxurious rooms. Love it.

Sitting some 500 mt. on a ridge above the savannah below, this lodge is an absolute treat. There is nothing not to like about the place, from the location, the staff, the food, it's Eco friendliness, to the animals and birds in the conservancy. From the restaurant / bar, you feel like you can see the whole of Africa stretched... More

This place for me means Africa at it's best. There is a 360° stunning view over the bush, every bungalow has a lot of space inside and a nice terrace from where you can see the infinity all around you. Lumo conservation area is a good place to spot predators: we met a nice group of lions during the night... More

Lion´s Bluff is situated on top of a hill with an almost 360 degree view of the plains below. You can enjoy the view almost everywhere. From the restaurant, the bar or your room. You sit litterally on the edge with a view of the plains about 300 meters below where you can see herds of elephants and other animals... More

Super view from the top of a hill. Super sunsets. Only the lack of management and the food lets it down. Could be so much better if these two things would improve. Also in the evening and night wear warm clothes. Very friendly staff.
