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

Stayed here for one night with two friends and this lodge is so beautiful. From our balcony we saw wild animals. We saw baboons, elephants and antilopes. 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

A great situation in Tsavo West Park but unfortunately, a bit tired. Needs some TLC around the edges particularly the Honeymoon Room (The Rock Room). The front family rooms are better. Good restaurant service and bar service.

Wonderful location in a beautiful park. Comfortable rooms and beds, but some bedside lights would be nice - why not small solar lights? since the generator goes off and some like to continue reading. We were very impressed with the solar hot water system . The Rock Room/Honeymoon Suite needs refurbishment. Food was mediocre but plentiful, and the service was... More

This lodge is amazing. First...the view. You're in the middle of the park. The lodge is just a bit on a cliff. Down, they have 2 lakes so all the animals of the park go there to drink. So when you eat or wake up you can see, giraffes, lions, elephants, zebras.... The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff... More

The little huts with a warm shower at the end of a long dusty day...comfy and clean beds, with excellent mosquito netting...the private sitting area with panoramic views of the valley and well used watering holes...the dining room was the same, with friendly staff and decent buffet style meals.
