My title says it all. The best food we had in Kenya. Animals all over. Very close to the park. Elephants walking around the hotel. Wifi was excellent in the main area. You will not be disappointed if you come to this lodge. Stay in room 1 on the far side.

I doubt you can hire a guide from the lodge but they have 4x4 and driver to take you on game drives. otherwise use a tour company for a whole package of car, guide and Tawi Lodge
