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

We've spent one night in this lodge. Generally speaking, it was not overrun due to the impact of terrorists threat on the tourism in Kenya. It took us more than 5 hours to get there from the Bamburri beach hotel where we were located. Elephants are familiar with the location and it was a wonderful feeling to see them in... More

Taita Hills and Salt lick are both magnificent sites. Watching the elephants drink from the watering hole is always intriguing. The service as always was excellent. The room had a few issues, however as soon as I brought it to their attention, the issues were quickly solved. All in all, lovely place.
