The Taita Hills Game Lodge together with its sister hotel Taita Salt Lick is the jewel in the crown of the Tsavo Game Santuary. You arrive to be met by a team of highly motivated staff. Unfortunately I was surprised there was no scanner for checking luggage which in my view is a security lapse. The rooms are excellent but... More

I was privileged to visit the 2 partner hotels and the experience was delightful. One offers multiple daytime activities and the other has a night time view to die for. The main course was ok but not over the top. But the desert and breakfast was well done. Avoid the cocktails though. They could get you sick. Overall I didn't... More
