There was so much about Salt Lick Lodge that will live long in the memory - the design itself is so impressive both from a distance and when you get close up but internally too, the decor, layout and wildlife features like watering holes, underground hide and suspended walkways mean that every opportunity is available for you to enjoy your...

We had an excellent stay here! On arriving at the lodge you are welcomed by elephants as the water hole surrounds the sitting area... amazing! The staff were very friendly and accommodative. The food was very good too! The cream of the trip was when we saw an elephant chasing lions(2 lionesses and 3 cubs) from our room. Loud trumpeting... More

My family and I stayed at Salt Lick and Taita Hills Lodge in August 2014. Simply fabulous!!!!! The lodge Manager, Willy, was so kind and helpful. I forgot my camera at the dinner table and didn't notice until the next morning. I frantically looked through my luggage and realized I didn't have it. The minute we entered the dining room,... More

We upgraded at the last minute whilst on the Jambo Ziwani Safari booked through Thompson as part of a package honeymoon. The hotel we were meant to be staying at was lovely, but we wanted to splash out on honeymoon and when we were asked if we wanted to upgrade we couldn't resist - we're so glad we did! We... More

After reading most of the reviews here I was really looking forward to spending 3 nights here. The room was clean but was really musty and the first thing I did upon arrival was opening the window. The mosquito net was also riddled with holes and fighting with the mosquitoes seemed to be a constant activity in the night. The... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of our safari and we were not disappointed with the round room which had windows that looked out into the water hole and onto the lush green plains where we could see animals such as water bucks and antelopes in the distance and lots of water birds drinking from the water hole.
