This is now called Rhino Valley camp, and is set on the hillside about 30kms from the main gate to the Park.. It is a delightful place with friendly and helpful staff, and very good food in a restaurant overlooking two waterholes. The rooms (individual chalets) have been recently done up and they were excellent, comfortable with a good bathroom... More

Don't confuse with the Ngulia Safari Lodge. This is now called the Rhino Valley Lodge. We had an excellent room with great view of both the waterholes. Although the animals seem to prefer the waterhole on the right. There is no leopard feeding at night (which we think is good, because we prefer wildlife instead of it being fed). But... More

Also listed as Rhino Valley Lodge. Do not confuse this with Ngulia Safari Lodge. There is a variety of accommodation options here and we stayed in the self catering bandas. We had previously stayed at Ngulia bandas in the 80s and 90s and could not believe the transformation. We stayed with friends in 1A/1B which have an inter-connecting door and... More

Shower was terrible as the water was not going away...so that shower quickly transform into a bath....of 1 square... More

We stayed in the camp one night during a 4 day Safari. The biggest difference to our other stops was the fact that you did not sleep in tents, but in solid houses nestled into the mountain with one wall being a moskito net. The rooms and bathrooms are really nice and the view from the restaurant is spectacular. Now... More

Okay its not a 5 star hotel, but the view is at least worth 8 stars . Besides that, its great to be escorted to your room by this mysterious beautiful Masai man. The campfire late at night, was great, the host was very sympathetic and informative, the staff helpful and the food very good. If you expect 5 stars... More

We arranged a safari whilst staying in Mombasa and selected to stay at Ngulia as the brochure proved interesting. We were not dissapointed! We enjoyed the Tsavo West safari but the highlight of our trip was without question our stay at Ngulia. The setting is perfect, perched up on the side of the hill the rooms themselves have superb views... More

Let's get one thing straight - there are two Ngulia 'lodges'. One is a 50 bedroom mega building with an amazing view over mmba (miles and miles of bl*** Africa), complete with swimming pool (very useful on a hot day). Stayed there 40 years ago - very nice, been back several times since for drink and a swim, not my... More
