This beautiful wildlife lodge in the middle of nowhere has very picturesque scenery, the Taita hills. The rooms are very neat and the food is wonderful. We stayed there during Jamhuri day 2014 and it was worth every dime

Excellent wildlife lodge with all the facilities you need even though you are in the middle of nowhere. Food quality finger licking tasty and cater for vegetarians. All the people who work at the lodge are so friendly. Any request is not to much to ask for.

We stayed in this lodge for one night and we had a wonderful time. It's a quite gateway in taita hills. Good food and well stocked bar. I enjoyed beautiful views of the park from my room. We saw many animals on the game drives The only drawback was slow WiFi provided by the lodge. Am definitely going back
