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.

This hotel was amazing. The setting was beautiful and breathtaking. We did not spend the night here, we did a stop for a few hours, to rest and have lunch.

The new year could not have began on better note. We stayed 3 nights and the experience was memorable. The rooms are clean but a suite is best as they face the watering hole and we were treated to amazing views of the elephant and buffaloes mainly in the evening and off course the smaller animals all day. You need... More

Have just returned from a weekend away at Taita Hills Game Lodge. The rooms were basic, clean but cramped. The bathroom had a bath cum shower which is unusual for lodges I have stayed in previously.

We stayed for two nights. Excellent location. However,the lodge especially the rooms needs some upgrade [ renovation, especially the bath-room] and touch up considering that they were built 41 [ 1973] years ago. Weak WIFI signal especially on upper floors, excellent at the reception and restaurant though. The menu [ food] lacked variety for the two nights, they seemed to... More
