We stayed in Ngulia Safari Lodge one night in between our safari days. The most impressive thing for us was the view from terrace to the field and hills surrounding the lodge. Hence, you can actually see animals like elephants passing by and even coming close to the lodge so you have a chance to see them from like 30... More

Stayed here for one night during a week long safari. Location is great with stunning vistas and lots of animals nearby. There were tons of elephants walking just in front of the hotel and we could see them from our balcony. Hotel was dated and the rooms were basic, however it had everything we needed while on safari. Food selection... More

Leopards are difficult to see: but Ngulia puts out bait in the evenings to encourage a leopard to call. Apparently sometimes it doesn't come, but we were fortunate and were able to watch from quite close by with a glass of Tusker in hand. This was a wonderful experience although admittedly a bit synthetic. Elephant watching was wonderful. Good service;... More

I love the 1960s retro feel to the place. The decor looks like it has not been touched since 1969 when the place was built but that gives it its charm. Plus the fact the electricity gets turned off from noon till 6pm, but most people are out game watching then anyway. The pool was not functional when we were... More

On the positive side - great view of the park. You can't beat it. There is a small water pond, which attracts all kind of animals, including elephants and leopards. In the evening there is a show with meat left in front of the terrace and leopards coming to enjoy the food. The rooms are with old furniture and on... More
