Simply the most beautyful place where you can sleep and dream in the middle of Savana! Having dinner with elephants and bufalo and monkey around! Close to touch them! We had a very nice experience because from this resort you start early morning (6 AM) for sunrise tour to see lions, giraffas, elephants, bufalo and many other animals that are... More

The big + in this lodge is the drinking pool. During our short visit we saw a huge group of elephants and an enormous group... More

We stayed here for my husbands birthday. The staff made it a day to remember. Watching the wildlife from the room was great. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.there are amazing views when on game drives. A good range of animals and very tame birds.

I stayed here as I was attending a Conference. It's tucked inside the Park and it's very quiet. Free WiFi came quite in handy as it eased communication. Food was excellent and had a wide variety-their desserts were out of this world!! The staff are very friendly and helpful. Nice pool too. I generally enjoyed my time here.

We stayed in Sarova Taita Hills Game Lodge as part of a tour operator safari to Kenya and Tanzania. It was an excellent hotel, with amazing views over the surrounding hills, nice rooms, very pleasant food with lots of choices, very friendly staff (who gave us a very warm welcome!). Overall this hotel was excellent and we'd thoroughly recommend it.

I have stayed at the this hotel over 10 yrs ago, when it was the Hilton . This time we had lunch here and then stayed at salt lick . The food was great, the only disappointment was that they don't do the hot air balloons from here anymore ( really really want to do that). Staff friendly, thank you

This hotel is nestled nicely at the outskirts of the Taita Hills sanctuary. It is an old facility and while there is a certain charm with the hotel and particularly the lobby area with its huge rock fireplace, the rooms are a bit tired and could use an upgrade, particularly the bathrooms. The game viewing was pretty poor when I... More

I was at the lodge from 15th february 2014 at 1pm and left the following morning. The rooms were okay but no phone(i was in room 112) so we had to go downstairs if we needed something. Also the pool had not been cleaned and the food was not the best both for dinner and breakfast, not enough variety. However,... More

We stayed here on night three of the Pollmans Ndogo Safari. The rooms were spotlessly clean, and the hotel offered a turn down service on an evening so when we returned to the room after safari the mosquito nets had been drawn around the bed and the air conditioning was on low. We arrived from the safari at lunchtime which... More
