We stayed here because we wanted to stay close to Voi Gate and we had read that the view is amazing and it really is - you can see for miles over the park and watch the elephants, buffalo, waterbuck and many more, all from your room/ dining area. It's also close to Voi Gate, so a great location for the start of your time in Tsavo East. But the hotel rooms are in need of a facelift, the service wasn't great and the food was poor (especially the packed lunch). It wasn't great value for money (the price was not much less than the amazing Salt Lick Game Lodge in Tsavo West)... but the view was amazing, so it's a traveller's dilemma... if you want a fantastic view, stay here... if your priority is great food and a cool, comfortable room, don't.

The lodge itself is nothing special, only 3 (Kenyan stars), the food is acceptable, there are beds for you :-). But the view is killing and the lodge is very good situated, in fact they say situated in the best way, as it was the first one they built.
So, if you are just looking for a bed and shower and on the other hand a place where you could watch the animals - this is your place.

Meet and great was very friendly, room is big with a spacious bedroom consisting of 2 double beds and obviously the usual table and chairs, there is a balcony and the view onto the man made water hole was a pleasant surprise, there were upwards of 1000 buffalo taking it in turns to drink, it was in excess of 2 hours from when we arrived before the first herd finished.
Very big bar/dining are, our drinks (g&t) were 50% dearer than other lodges. Good choice of food at dinner and breakfast

Lodge with the wonderful view to savanna. Situated on the hill. Medium rooms conditions (old bathrooms, simple furniture) and simple food. The great adventage of this Lodge is the nearby watering-place for animals and special view point organized by the Lodge to see the animals very near and make good photos!

This place was recommended to us before we left the UK. We hsd bedrooms on the top floor, and the view from the room was 2 watering holes, where animals came to drink at dawn and dusk. Rooms nice, water provided per person (bottled) mosquito nets surround the beds. Fully equiped bathroom. Meals included in your price, breakfast, lunch and evening meal, all buffet style, with lots of choice. The only downside, drinks, whether alcoholic or soft, were a bit pricey.

Stayed: January 2017
