The small staff were eager to meet our every need. Coffee and Tea wake up calls. Cocktails and wine happy hour, excellent dinners.Lunches were set, dinner... More

The highlight was the place we stayed at, Tawi Lodge, located just outside the main park on a private conservancy, The lodge is quaint and charming. The cottages or bandas as they are called are superbly designed and one has the feeing of simple... More

We stayed in Tawi Lodge 3 nights. It's a wonderful address. It is located a bit outside the park in a very nice area facing the Kilimandjaro. The room are located in small individual villas very nicely furbished with a large comfortable bathroom. The garden is a paradise with a pool just in front of a pond where elephants, girafes,...

A great place to relax and just spend staring at Mt Kilimanjaro or all the wildlife that comes right up to the lodge's watering hole. One night 25 elephants visited which was such a great sight. The food it truly special, very tasteful and original. The onion soup was the best I have had. The manager is passionate about making... More

Our time at Tawi Lodge was truly wonderful, the lodge is quite unique in many ways. The location with Kilimanjaro view is breathtaking but the lodge itself is a great place too. With a natural waterhole literally at a stones throw from the lodge area, we saw giraffes, elephants, zebra's, impala's, warthogs and many other animals without even having to... More

Excellent place, excellent service and: - amazing view from the windows of your house/tent on Kilimanjaro - animals close to you: during my stay I had a chance to eat dinner next to elephants. It is great adventure to be here. I highly recommend this place.

The first stop on our 2 week safari. Bandas were elegant, creatively furnished and beautifully situated. Animal viewing off the dining room and pool area was spectacular. Attention to ecologically responsible management is impressive. Game viewing in the park was wonderful. Also took a spontaneous trip to Oloitoktok with the manager, which was fascinating. Wi-fi didn't work; food was good,... More

Tawi is a small, very personable bush hotel. Everything is Eco. The owners take great pride in making you feel at home. 50 yards from your breakfast table is a natural watering hole. Animals of all types come for a quick drink and walk on thru. Its a wooded area, little hard to get to being remote. See the photo's... More

Arriving at Tawi, the staff instantly made us feel comfortable and right at home. They had beautiful rooms prepared for us overlooking Mt. Kilimanjaro and a watering hole that would attract elephants, zebras, giraffes, and lots of other animals. It made you feel like you were living among the animals. The food- I can go on for hours about the... More
