It was a nice start to our holiday safari and we highly recommend it... More

We had a great stay at the Lodge. The staff is helpful and friendly, the rooms are nice and clean, the swimming pool - although crowded - was very refreshing indeed. The meals are okay, but nothing special. The only suggestions for improvement I'd make are to offer a more diverse buffet in order to cater to different tastes and... More

The lodge really needs no review!...The place is truly amazing, you enjoy the great wildlife of Tsavo West in luxury. Rooms are very comfortable and the food is great. Their service is excellent, friendly lodge staff and the Sanctuary Wardens are a bank of knowledge on the various wildlife abound in the area.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise after a 5 hour drive down the Mombasa highway. Please note that you have to turn off at Voi town and drive an additional 40km on a murrum all weather road, but a regular car can handle this without any difficulty.

We highly recommend this hotel, it is very comfortable, good is good and the staff are wonderful. After a very long journey from Diani Beach (2,5hr ferry queue + car breakdown), we arrived exhausted, hungry, hot and disappointed at the lodge, 4 hours after schedule.
