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

It is such a great community project and they must take credit for trying to save this amazing corner of the Tsavo ecosystem. Thank you for your very positive review and we hope to see you back at the Bluff soon. 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.

Leopards Lair is Lions Bluff's private satellite tented camp and it's a truly stunning getaway overlooking Lumo with a backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro. As a local to the Tsavo area, Lumo Conservancy and its surrounds is one of my favorite spots, never failing to impress with lions, elephants...i could go on... a great variety of wildlife!

We stayed at the small sister camp to Lion's Bluff called Leopards Lair. It is just below the lodge and in an ideal location for the most beautiful view in Kenya!

So this was a day at their satellite camp. The most spellbinding thing was the peace, with the gentle voices of some very attentive Kenyans making sure your every wish was answered. Genies provide just three wishes, these guys were limitless. Beer, peanuts, BBQ, all with a view to kill for and for our stay at least, a whole heap... More

Its tag line is: 'The View with a Lodge', which captures everything. The decision was made to build on top of a high hill, so you have spectacular panoramic views across the plains. Water is a problem, though, and the storage tank has to be filled twice daily to maintain supplies. Showers are therefore rudimentary and you're asked to keep... More

The Lions Bluff is built on top of a rocky hill in the African Savanna. This makes it the best place to stay if you are a nature lover because of the undistracted view for miles!
