The location of this place is unparallelled. Perched high on a promontory overlooking waste stretches of Africa's savannah, it is absolutely beautiful. It is quiet, restful and at peace with the world. Some animals came close to our hut (room) and we could relax and view them from a commodious balcony. The room itself was large and well fitted, the... More

It is such a pleasure sharing the amazing panorama with our guests. Being outside of the National Park we can offer all sorts of different activities such as Night drives, bush walks and Bush breakfasts. We hope that you will return to the Bluff again. More

We didn't know what to expect when we booked Lions Bluff. We thought it was either going to be amazing or a let down. It was amazing on so many levels. Getting to the Lions Bluff is an adventure. The ride in is on very rough dirt roads. It adds to the flavor of being in the animals world. We... More

Wonderfull lodge. Big rooms with great view. Very friendly staff, Masaï brings you from and to your room because there could be animals around. Very nice restaurant with romantic candlelight and warm little fire. Great buffet. Be aware that there are many mosquitos in August!

Great location for us to host you, the clients. Not sure why Mosquito's are so bad this year, good news as that they are not the Malaria carrying variety! We hope to host you again at The Bluff. More

I've stayed here quite a few times now and it's never a let down. Really friendly staff, lovely rooms, delicious food (must try the banoffee pie) and the most exquisite view you shall ever experience. Really beautiful setting and never disappointed with the wildlife - last time I saw leopard, lion and elephants along with loads of others. Another great... More

The views from the main lodge and our private balcony were absolutely breathtaking. Our room was gorgeous (ensuite; beautiful wooden 4 poster bed). The staff were very helpful and friendly. Although we went when there was slightly less game around, this didn't impact our enjoyment of the experience at all. It was fantastic exploring the beautiful Tsavo park without hoards... More

This is the second time we have been fortunate enough to visit Lions Bluff. The first time was four years ago and despite the lodge beginning to show the signs of some gentle wear and tear, this can be forgiven as there is nowhere I have visited which boasts such incredible views, such a charming ambience and such helpful, delightful...

Great that you returned to The Bluff and the view still worked its magic. Yes this Green season has been tougher than most BUT the second half of the year is looking much better for Kenya and The Bluff with great bookings. The staff really appreciated your comments and we look forward to your return. More

What an incredible place. Perched atop the Lions Bluff, this quaint lodge offers 360 degree views LUMO conservancy, Taita hills sanctuary, Tsavo West National Park and Mt. Kilimanjaro. The staff were warm and helpful, the rooms beautiful and peaceful. Food was delicious and the surrounding reserve, filled with wildlife without the people.... For your sake, please visit.
