“Best hotel I have ever stayed in”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

I was WOWed as soon as i stepped in the hotel. The thing that done it for me were the views which you can get. The restaurant, bar and swimming pool all look over the African Savannah with numerous elephants at the watering hole. the views go as far as the eye can see. Our room also looked out onto the savannah aswell best view I have ever had. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The food in the hotel was also really nice with a great variety to choose from. Overall it is a fantastic hotel to spend your nights whilst on safari in Tsavo East I would recommend it to anybody.

Room Tip: a view onto the game reserve

Had a fantastic stay at the voi lodge, fantastic views of elephants, and buffaloes drinking from the waterhole, I can't describe how amazing the view was it was unreal. Baboons visited during the day and were so close it was great. Amazing photo opportunities. The food was great, the service was brilliant, the staff was so attentive it topped off the experience. The rooms were clean and had great views. Don't leave your window open incase the baboons get in.

I stayed here 18 years ago and not a lot of change but I am glad it is still the same comfortable beds and great food and the elephant waterering hole that you can get close to under ground is just brilliant

We spent one night at the Lodge and had a great time. The herds of elephant were impressive and good fun to watch. The ciewing tunnel brings one right up to the elephants and gives great photo opportunities. We would go back in a heart beat.
Remember to lock your windows when not in the rooms as the baboons will steal anything of interest.
Staff were very helpful and food was reasonably good.

Room Tip: All rooms face the plains and watering holes.

We spent an amazing night here on our safari. The views from the restaurant are amazing. We were on safari with 2 other couples and we all sat together for lunch when we arrived. Our table was right on the edge of the restaurant so we had a birds eye view of the watering hole. We requested the same table for our evening meal which the staff kindly arranged for us. The most amazing views from the hide down a lot of steps. The pool area has great views. The pool is really cold but I spent a lovely 45 minutes sunbathing here with vast views of Tsavo East. We saw elephants, buffalo, vultures, many gazelle, monkeys...great wildlife viewing from the lodge and the park itself. Great rooms, great food and great wildlife! Everything you want from a safari lodge

A lovely lodge. We especially loved the bunker, so you really good get a close look at the wildlife drinking water. From everywhere, diningroom, hotelroom, bunker, pool, you had a lovely view of the waterholes. Plenty to see, from bats to elephants, monkeys, fire-agame, waterbucks, etc.
We were here in 2009, so it can be changed a little.

The lodge is great situated with an incredible view on waterhole. Thanks to that you can see hundreds of animals all over the time. Mostly elephants but also buffaloes. The Voi has a tunnel which ends in front of the waterhole = you can see (and smell :) ) animals as they are standing, drinking water and playing just 1 - 5 meters away from you. It is like in ZOO - but in that case actually you are inside the bars not animals.
Food given in the restaurant was good - mostly european style. Rooms are somewhat old - fashioned but very clean and nice. Staying here is a good choice and it is worth to spend more $ just to be there and see those animals.
