I was speechless when I arrived at Lions Bluff Lodge in February 2017, the breathtaking view, the room and the main lodge is simply impeccable. It was the highlight of an already impressive stay in Kenya. We started the days with an early morning game drive then returned for a hearty breakfast - with very good black pudding and everything...

Extraordinary location with stunning views over the plains. The staff are fantastic and so was the food. The "rooms" are very different! Sort of tents with a solid thatched roof, looked like rondavels, hard to describe but great fun and well equipped with a comfortable bed and a large balcony; showers etc eco-designed but clean and efficient. A masai warrior/guard...

Put this on your bucket list now! Words cannot describe what it feels like to sit at Lion's Bluff and view the 360 panoramic view. As far as the eye can see there lies the savannah - unspoilt, raw, and exciting. It takes your breath away. We were a wedding party of 15 started our amazing holiday here at Lion's...

My husband and I just returned home after 5 glorious days at Lions Bluff. The lodge is very Kenyan with bush monkeys and baboons roaming the property. The view was the nicest we have ever seen. Our room consisted of a king size bed, clean and roomy bathroom and a wonderful terrace. The staff was exceptional in their service and...

Great close to nature camp with friendly competent helpful staff and a talented chef. Very peaceful. All bandas/tents are well kept and cleaned and have an expansive view of the plains. Decent wifi by reception desk. Community run and they deserve to do well. And at last, a lodge that doesn't hike the room rates for independent foreign travellers. A...

Our 3rd year in a row at Lions Bluff. We've camped at Cheetah campsite, stayed in the rooms at the main lodge and this year opted for between the two at Leopards Lair which is a sort of fixed mobile safari camp in a lovely location just down the hill. They have their own little kitchen which produces quite outstanding...

Lions Bluff Lodge gets better and better every time we visit. If it were possible, but somehow it is. It's the view; the best view ever. This time just after the rain, it was clear, the sun was setting and the light made it appear magical. The food was delicious; always fresh, always different. Our room, so exclusive, private, comfortable,...

The people, the view, the food and the animals made my millennium. The views are breathtaking, overlooking the the animals from the top of the bluff and with Kilimanjaro in the background. Anyone looking for an amazing escape, this is the place to come.

We booked just one night which should have been two in hindsight! Most spectacular views of what looks like the whole of Africa from the lodge site.
