“Magnificent View!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

I stayed here one night on a work trip. The lodge is situated on top of a hill adjacent to Tsavo East Park. Views from the lodge into the park are magnificent! We could see elephants and other game in the distance. The lodge itself is small with friendly and accommodating staff and service. The rooms and bathrooms appear to have been recently renovated and were quite nice and clean. Each room has a lovely private balcony overlooking the park. The common area and dining room were fine with adequate meals for the price. I would certainly stay here again if in the area or going into the park. Good value!

During our safari with Wildlife Kenya Safari we stayed 1 night at the Zomeni Lion Hill Lodge. We had a good room but what really made it special was the view we had from our balcony. We could see elephants and the sounds of nature were soothing. The food was acceptable and the service was good. Even at the restaurant the view was amazing.

The staff was attentive and friendly. The rooms were charming and clean. The views were AMAZING. We watched elephants and other wildlife from our balcony. The food was plentiful, well presented and fresh and the coffee was great. The sunset was incredible with thunderheads rumbling in the distance. We were greeted by a monitor lizard, dik-diks, baboons, and other wildlife on out drive up to the lodge from the Tsavo East Reserve, just minutes from the hotel.

We have stayed in this lodge for 1 night and it was great. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Great views too. Food was good and the service was excellent. This lodge is just a few minutes away from the Tsavo East park gate.

Beautiful mountain views over Tsavo Park below. We arrived halfway through our safari. It had started to drizzle slightly which actually added to the absolutely intoxicating atmosphere. A cool breeze helped keep the humidity of the day at bay.

A hot buffet was inexpensive and well prepared.

We were cheerfully served by attentive staff who pleasantly joked with our nephews as their demands for ice cubes with their cokes neared the extreme.

The toilets were clean. And decor a throw back to old colonial Kenya. Very well maintained. We enjoyed a delightful lunch. There were several families. A united nations gathering of sorts. Germans, Kenyans, Brits and Swedes while we were there.

The gardens were well maintained and picturesque views all round. Animal sightings were plentiful.

Thank you to the staff for their professionalism. Especially considering that we were a last minute addition.

Note: I liked the idea of having a staff 'tip' box. We all used it. Well deserved.

We stayed here during our 4 days safari, and really loved this lodge. It was by far the best of the ones we stayed in during our safari... the rooms are so nice, and there's a spectacular view to the park right from the window/balcony! It was wonderful to wake up and see elefants walk around down in the park right outside below ones room! Also the food was the best quality we had during our safari trip!

A nice place to be based when visiting Tsavo, a taste of old Africa, peaceful, good service and international food, lot of animals can be wieved from the lodge. Ideal for a romantic or a family Safari.
