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. The staff were polite and service was generally good. The food choice was of a limited variety and I understand why, being so far... More

Oh Saltlick lodge is a very unusual lodge where all the rooms are set up on stilts. The service and the food here is excellent. Saltlick is a sister hotel to Taita Hills. The rooms are not huge but big enough and are all set around the waterhole giving you the opportunity to see the various animals arriving throughout the... More

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

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.
