Where do I start, our driver from game watchers Paul was amazing from start to finish, couldn't do enough for us.

Beautifully situated in the middle of Salt Lick game parc, this is a must for anyone going on a safari to Tsavo. Upon arrival there were dozens of buffalo and some elephants drinking at the waterhole and in the drinking ' pond' just in front f the hotel. They were so close you could almost touch them!

We visited here as part of our honeymoon,and love it ! Accommodation a little basic, but has everything you need. You really only use this place to eat and sleep, as you are in and out on game drives. We arranged a night drive through this hotel and was not disappointed ! The food was great and the service fantastic.... More

I stayed here with several friends and we had an incredible time. The location couldn't be better as there are several watering holes just underneath the restaurant and behind the lobby and you get greeted by all sorts of wildlife in an up close and personal manner. The service was more or less good, though we had to wait close... More
