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.

Always great to host adventurous travelers. Not enough folk use the small cheetah campsite, those that do are welcome to us the lodge facilities including activities in the game sanctuary. Hope your travels went well and that we will see you back one day. More

My partner and I spent two nights at Lions Bluff just before Christmas. What an amazing place ! The term 'view with a lodge' fits perfectly. The views across the game park are mind blowing. We stayed in No.1 Banda which is directly above the waterhole. From our room, we saw elephant, giraffe and even lion. The accomodation is very... More

Tony, thank you for your lovely review. Being in a sanctuary rather than a National Park gives us considerable freedom to carry out fun activities such as bush walks and breakfasts. We hope to host you at the Bluff again and you are so right to point out the vast variety of birds as well as the animals. More

I have been to Lion's Bluff recently and had an amazing holiday there. The view is one of the best I have seen so far among safari lodges in Kenya. The staff is very friendly, the food is good and there are some very interesting activities to do in the area. Lion's Bluff is also highly recommended for honeymoons and... More

Thank you to all at Lion's Bluff for making our 3 night stay so spectacular! 16 people aged 5-70 is quite a party for any hotel to accommodate but you did it perfectly. The safari drives were spectacular with well informed drivers and rangers determined to find the best animals for us. The bush breakfast was like something from a... More

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

Fantastic that you enjoyed the Bluff. It is so important that visitors appreciate the sacrifice the community make in setting aside land for conservation. It is you the visitors that make the whole package work as they collect gate and bed night fees from your fun time at the Bluff. 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
