“Great location, excellent meals, great bush walks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

We spent 2 nights at Voyager Ziwani during a safari trip in Kenia. Although there was no swimming pool, this lodge was great.The setting was beautiful, overlooking at a small lake with hippo's, crocodiles and birds.We and our children enjoyed very mucht the activities by Stephen Lekatoo, a Masai/ranger, including a bush walk, fishing, and all kinds of ranger activities.
The safaritents were very comfortable and clean. The meals were excellent, sometimes served as a buffet, sometimes as a 5 course meal.

Room Tip: Some tents have a beautiful view overlooking the lake.

We arrived with high expectations which were completely surpassed. The accommodation was absolutely outstanding hot showers , comfortable beds and immaculate with attentive but not intrusive service from Michael. The tents are all spayed with insect repellant prior to turning in for the night to ensure maximum protection fromt mosquitoes which certainly worked for us. The walking safari was fantastic, a unique opportunity to get up close to the animals including hippos, zebras and impala led by our very knowledgable host. The food was outstanding, beautifully prepared and presented with top service from Joseph. Dinner by the campfire at the wAterhole ended a perfect day and we were personally escorted back to our tent and were delighted to discover lovely hot water bottle in our beds, ensuring one of the best nights sleep I've had in a long time. A real storybook experience which I can't recommend highly enough

We stayed here for a night last week for our honeymoon 3-day safari and it was just brilliant.
The tents are lovely, spacious and well equipped and the staff and food was fantastic.
We could see crocs and hippo from our dining table.
We also did a night drive and saw a hippo out the water eating, very close up. Along with zebra, buffaloand mongoose.
Well worth a visit!

Simple elegance. The tents were located round a dammed river/lake so you could see crocodiles and hippos in the water. The staff are incredibly friendly and professional. The room was comfy, spacious and elegant. The food was amazing non buffet and was fresh from their own farm. When we were there elephants came and walked just by the lake and past our tents. They said that they usually drink there. We went on a nature walk and saw many animals without walking over 2 miles. Really would recommend, our favourite safria camp out of a total 6

This is such a peacefull and lovely place in the bush.
situatied on the banks of a small lake full of croc's and hippo's.
on a good day you can see the kilimanjaro very clearly even with a beautiful sundowner.
the staff is very friendly and give a good service.
the place is set up spacious and comfortable. the kitchen is very good and good service, they serve very nice wine too. the tents you sleep in are clean, safe, completely closed agains mosquito's and perfectly built.
the wildlife is really on your doorstep with elephants, hippo's, antilopes, baboon, you name it.
the guides we used for safaries are well informed and very friendly. we did a night safary really amazing, we stood 5m from a hippo in the dark and a big herd of elands we saw passing in front of our car. next day we did a trip to the springs and lava fields an on the way we saw many wildlife. we where here in the dry season (last weekend of june) but you have to go with a 4x4 to drive comfortable.

Room Tip: Room 25 is adjacent to the bush with lot of animal activity.

We've just come back from our honeymoon and cannot praise the Ziwani camp enough. The drive there is really long from Mombasa and there really aren't any 'roads' but getting there is worth the drive! We had a lovely wooden 'glamping' hut/tent by the lake and Michael our host had made a really special effort for us. The bed is so comfortable and the bathrooms just fine and the staff even put hot water bottles in your bed at night (the nights can be a bit chilly in the hills). The staff turn downt the rooms at night and put all the mosiquots nets up and spray them with deet, we didn't get bitten once. The food.....I have eaten at 5* London hotels that would just rival the food at the camp, amazing! So fresh and colourful and huge helpings. You are given a four course menu to choose from on every meal and every dish was presented beautifully and tasted fantastic!
My only one concern was the hippos and crocodiles in the lake, nothing to stop them coming out and seeing you. But i was assured they were kept well fed!
our nature walk guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answers any questions, he found loads of animals for us and we were lucky enough to have elephants visit the camp one night.
We also had a talk from a Maasai Warriorr who was really interesting and explained all about the culture and history.
Really cannot recommend this place enough- go!!!

We stayed here for one night as part of our safari. Wow! What an amazing place! The people cannot do enough for you, the 'tent' is one of the nicest rooms we have stayed in but by far the one outstanding thing for us was the food! Five course of choice for both lunch and dinner, all of which could put posh restaurant food to shame!
We also opted for the nature walks which were well worth doing, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and took us up close to the hippos and crocs!
Would definitely return, thank you to everyone that made our stay so memorable.
