Sagala Lodge
Ranked #4 of 16 Specialty Lodging in Voi
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Myself and some friends needed a place to rest our heads before heading off to Kasigau and we found a soft pillow and a comfy bed at Sagala. it was fantastic - Anna and her staff welcomed us with open arms. A short walk through the bush is Sagala's own little nature reserve witha water hold frequented by buck and zebra. The food was great, rooms clean and the swimming pool crystal clear and very cool. In fact on our way back from Kasigau we managed another night at Sagala - fond memories indeed!

Room Tip: They are all similar - little chalets in the bush

I stayed for a couple of nights while visiting Tsavo game parks, the lodge is about 20 mins from the gates which open at 6.30 so is fine for visiting.

I liked the lodge as a) it was quiet b) had large grounds you can walk around with over 200 species of birds c) chance of seeing other wildlife eg Elephants d) rooms where spotlessly clean e) staff where very friendly f) liked the food g) resonably priced/low cost for lodge type accomodation

The Swiss lady who runs the hotel is very friendly, but you get the feeling her staff may be running rings behind her back. All this however just adds to the charm. The birdlife and the mating tortoises are terrific, and meal time is Out of Africa meets school dinners. All in all, I'm not sure it's worth more than a pit-stop on the way to / from the coast.

If you want animals, then stay at a lodge that backs onto Tsavo East. If you want something cheap, then stay at the Silent Guesthouse in Voi. If you want an enjoyable, affordable but slightly surreal experience - then stay here!

We stayed at Sagala Lodge in November 2011 as well as in February 2012. It is a haven for difficult-to-see birds. And the best part about it is that you can walk around their property and to a little water hole. We drove to the waterhole at night and saw a huge group of elephants coming to drink in the dry season. Their vegetarian food is also good. They have a nice swimming pool and its very close for accessing Tsavo East. And the rates are very reasonable.

Beautiful place set within a reserve with amazing bird life. Electricity provided by a generator only at night. After roughing it a little prior to this stay we did feel it was a little contrived and too quiet for us. Restaurant had a set menu and food was reasonably good. Did feel like we had to have our kids (age 8 and 13) on their best behaviour, and of course, it was the one night when they played up. Kids loved the great pool and guided walk through the reserve to a waterhole, even though we did not see many animals on this occasion. If you are looking for comfort, quiet and rest or an escape from the real Kenya, this is a great place.

Sagala lodge was the best stay on our safari .We were greeted by the owner and staff ,givern refreshments on our arrival .The rooms were spacous and clean ,The food was excellent .This is the ideal place to stay for tsavo east /west game parks .They also have a part of the lodge which has rare animals which are breed to reintroduce to the wild ,we were given a walk around this and saw plenty of animals which was a change from the mini bus .
It was like staying out in the wild

Sagala Lodge is located off the main Nairobi/Mombasa highway close to Vol between Tsavo East and West National Parks and is a good location when travelling between the two parks. I will say however there are some stunning looking lodges/camps around Vol and within Tsavo East, but I’m sure that will be reflected in the price.

Set in it’s own wildlife sanctuary, Sagala Lodge has comfortable accommodation, if a tad small and good communal areas. I found the food to be of good quality, but once it ran out, that’s it! Drinks were expensive, but it’s not as if you can pop to the local bar as it’s half an hour drive away. I also couldn’t get a cold beer for love nor money! There is also a small swimming pool that looked clean and very welcoming, but I didn’t get a chance to swim during my stay.

Would I stay here again? I would certainly look at other lodges/camps around the Vol area of Tsavo, but I wouldn’t be unhappy to stay at Sagala Lodge again.
