We arrived at Taita Hills for our stay at the Saltlick with the floodlit watering hole. Except we didn’t as we’d been changed to the cheaper Sarova Game Lodge just down the road instead.
To say we were gutted would be an understatement as we’d been sold on the Saltlick as a unique hotel, but concentrating on this hotel it’s dull, dreary and uncomfortably hot (no air con) at night. It’s also very tired and doesn’t have the uniqueness of the Saltlick.
Food was however very good and it’s next to the sanctuary. Stay in the Saltlick instead, little to recommend here.
