Travelers' Choice
Voi Safari Lodge is a strategically situated safari lodge, in one of the world’s largest game parks – the Tsavo National Park – Voi Safari Lodge stands high above the town of Voi overlooking a vast expanse of the African bush. It is 160km from Mombasa city. You can simply watch the herds of wild animals roam beneath you or you can get closer by a network of access roads reaching into many corners of this 11,666 square kilometre park. From the Lodge, you can look out onto the three water holes and see the ever-changing panorama of Africa unfold right before your eyes and at the same time enjoy the luxury of waiters’ service. There is a special ‘HIDE’ for the camera enthusiasts affording close-up and candid pictures of the wild animals which do not suspect any human presence. This is an ideal spot from which to go out in search of the ‘BIG FIVE’ – Elephant, Lion, Buffalo, Leopard and Rhino. From Voi you have speedy and easy access to either the Tsavo East or Tsavo West portions of this park.

Exceptional view from hotel restaurant. There is artificial mere next to it, that attracts wilde animals from the part. ( we watched hippo and two elephants fighting each other ). Rooms and bathrooms dated. Staff very kind. Food served in restaurant limited in choice. Place OK for one night stay.

Chose to stay because of the views and the location, in particular the proximity to the Sheldrick Stockade in Voi. The open style of the hotel is helpful for ventilation in these times (covid). Food when we stayed was just okay. Service in all areas was excellent. Lunch boxes were ready very early and there were never delays waiting for them. Room was dated, space was a little tight & shower temperature tricky but it was clean and the view from the room was incredible. Very convenient base for exploring Tsavo East.

Stayed again at Voi Safari Lodge, I love the spot for it’s amazing views, the wildlife at the waterhole and the pole shove the waterhole… we’re in the world do you have it??? As the lodge was build in 70‘s and it has a very open style, it is very light to hear your neighbor… if you need more privacy, don’t bother to come here. As there were very few guests, they offered us a la card food, which was served on the table. I think this is a better option to serve food then with a buffet.

I spent there two nights end of September and I loved my stay. Friendly staff, rooms are good with great views. Food was ok but the best is the animal hideout. When I was there in September they didn't have a car to do game drives. The office connected me to a driver and after some bargaining we agreed. A good and well known lodge inside a National Park should have a car to do game drives for clients!

Amazing place for watching a lot of elephants coming to drink water. You can see them very close from special underground room. Small but clean and nice rooms, a bit noisy. Good restaurant! Good place to stay between safari days!

Situated at the southern end of Tsavo East National Park. It is only 5 miles from the main Mombasa / Nairobi trunk road but seems like its in the middle of nowhere. Food is much better than most safari lodges. ( These lodges are primarily used for overnight stays as part of a package safari bought in resorts in Mombasa.) Excellent panoramic views of Tsavo East..plus a great waterhole for animal viewing... I counted 62 elephants at one time on my stay. Good pool as well. Accomodation is adequate without being luxurious...No Air Con but rooms are equipped with electric fans..

The lodge has one of the best views in Tsavo East with a watering hole that attracts wildlife. We were lucky enough to see a pride of lions, herds of elephants, over a thousand buffalos - all from the comfort of the hotel. The staff is super friendly - shout out to Roman and Duncan - they ensured we felt at home during the entire stay and were kind enough to call us from the room when were late for meals. We enjoyed the pool whistle taking in spectacular views. A must stay for locals and international guests.

A 5 star location with views over the plains and two waterholes (although when we were there the elephants preferred the further away waterholes). The food was also good enough, although breakfast choice was quite limited and the bar was a nice place to relax with a beer. I wish we had time to use the pool, but we only stayed one night and didn't have the time. As others have said, the rooms are dated. Nothing in our bathroom worked as it should. The tap handle came off when we tried to use the sink, the toilet flush did the same and both the hot and cold taps on the shower delivered scalding hot water. Despite this, I would stay again, just for the view and to use that pool.
