A petite and quite lodge. With big breath taking mt kilimanjaro views from the rooms wins it. The menu is very restrictive but tasty. The staff are really kind and try very much to make you feel at home.

We went for two nights and this may well be my last Kenyan safari so wanted to make it memorable. Most of the time we were the only family (7 of us) and it was just stunning. The location, the sleeping cottages with views on MtKi, lovely pool, gardens. So peaceful. Staff we knew by name and were so friendly,...

Tawi Lodge is set on a picturesque location overlooking Mt. Kilimanjaro. The gate to the Amboselli park is not far, some 15-20 minutes drive away. The bandas are done perfectly with some details here and there. The food is good and the staff is kind. There were some miaunderstandings from the plans of the day, so better double-check the programme...

This is a top quality eco-lodge in its own Conservancy. Just 13 cottages, so intimate. Each cottage wonderfully spacious and well appointed with major bath-tub and rain-shower, both looking out over the watering hole. Really attentive and friendly "nothing is a problem" service from Barack (manager in charge), Dominic and Justus (serving food) to the cleaners and (night) guards. The...

We happened to overlap with the Masai Olympics - a fun cultural event that only takes place once every 2 years in early December. Menno the...

This is one of the classiest lodges on our safari adventure. Zebras within 100 yards of our porch, Elephants less the 100 yards from our breakfast table. Wonderful accommodations and the best chef in Kenya. At Christmas dinner we were treated to a Masai dancers and singers. I can not put in words how wonderful this location is. And, It...

Manu greeted us on arrival and from that moment we had the most memorable, wonderful experience. The travel to the lodge was a safari experience in itself.We'd travelled from Nairobi and were greeted with a very warm welcome and a lovely cold drink. The rooms were enormous and beautifully styled in keeping with the awe inspiring setting, each facing Kilimanjaro....

Accommodations at Tawi are individual adobe-like houses overlooking the conservancy grounds and close to Amboseli National Park. I stayed here for 3 nights - I could have stayed much longer. The rooms are spacious, luxurious, and with spa-like bathrooms and beds. A beautiful setting with views of the mountain and visiting animals. Fabulous breakfast and meals with fresh produce and...

The setting of Tawi Lodge in the midst of a conservancy adjacent to the Amboseli National Park is absolutely breathtaking. The bandas you stay in are very spacious and luxurious, the bathroom area offering to enjoy a bath or a shower with the door open and views of the surrounding area - superb. The entire lodge is elegant and decorated...
