The room was full of character, clean with basic amenities. Lights out at 10pm so were led by torchlight to room to and from dinner. Views are stunning over the valley especially at sunrise and sunset though sadly no rhinos here now. Food basic. Not many facilities but since only there briefly not a problem.

We stayed here for one night as part of a private safari tour booked through a local Kenyan guide. I was confused to what to expect as there were two accommodation options within Tsavo West with similar names Ngulia Safari Camp (also known as Rhino Valley Lodge) and Ngulia Safari Lodge that apparently feeds the animals to encourage them to...

In January 2015 we stayed for 3 nights in the Rhino Valley Lodge in Tasvo West Park. Accommodation The rooms were wonderful. Our room has a comfortable bed with a mosquito net (one of the best I saw in Africa) and a nice washroom. But the highlight was the balcony, from where you had a nice view over the waterhole,...

Nice little lodge with breathtaking views from the rooms and dining area. If you are lucky you will wake up to elephants and water bucks drinking from the watering hole outside your banda. The staff is very warm and friendly, making our stay very memorable. The staff took us for a game drive which was amazing and totally worth the... More

The folks in charge of the lodge do a very nice job of making you feel at home. The food is good, the accommodations are very nice indeed, and you can look from the verandah of your banda down on a nice variety of game (if you are lucky of course) and see some interesting birds near the banda. It... More

Rhino Valley Lodge has a fantastic view over the valley and with a direct view of 2 waterholes where a variety of animals can be seen. Elephants, waterbucks, warthogs and giraffes are among them. The lodge is not fenced so you need a maasai guard to conduct you to your room after dark - elephants and other animals pass right... More

Nice lodge with a great view on a little lake where animals, come during the night, looking for water. You can observe them from a little terrace out of your bungalow, thank to some light near the lake. Wonderful. After getting dark, you can't leave your bungalow alone, you have to call a boy of the staff to go/come back... More

So beautiful just to sit and watch them walk around there.The people working there were great and friendly and the food was good. The rooms were nice with big beds and a comfortable... More

The lodge, located on top of a hillside high above the tropical countryside, is surely a place worth spending a night. The dining terrace offers a magnificent view of the Tsavo West park. While eating your breakfast or lunch you can observe elephants and other wild beasts drinking from a nearby pond. However, if you want to see them well,... More
