On a 4 day safari trip we stayed here for one night. The bumpy ride to the top of the hill were this lodge is located, was more than compensated by the magnificent view all around the complex. We were the only 4 guest at this occasion and enjoyed every minute of our stay. It was a shame we had...

We are so pleased that you enjoyed the Bluff. The new Tarmac road is making the trip so much easier. The community are working on the hill track and we hope to see significant change soon.

We are so glad that the magic of Lions Bluff and the LUMO Community Wildlife Sanctuary worked on you. Unfortunately the solar power had experience problems which have since been solved. The internet is available in the reception area via a satellite link. I am not sure why you experienced outages but we have asked the suppliers to look into...

This is a great place. You are on top of hill overlooking a vast area. Your room is suspended over the slope with a balcony to gaze over the scenery. The same view is available from the lounge area. The accommodations are very comfortable, the food was excellent (the best we ate in Kenya) and staff very enjoyable and helpful....

The location of this place is unparallelled. Perched high on a promontory overlooking waste stretches of Africa's savannah, it is absolutely beautiful. It is quiet, restful and at peace with the world. Some animals came close to our hut (room) and we could relax and view them from a commodious balcony. The room itself was large and well fitted, the...

It is such a pleasure sharing the amazing panorama with our guests. Being outside of the National Park we can offer all sorts of different activities such as Night drives, bush walks and Bush breakfasts. We hope that you will return to the Bluff again.

We didn't know what to expect when we booked Lions Bluff. We thought it was either going to be amazing or a let down. It was amazing on so many levels. Getting to the Lions Bluff is an adventure. The ride in is on very rough dirt roads. It adds to the flavor of being in the animals world. We...

Wonderfull lodge. Big rooms with great view. Very friendly staff, Masaï brings you from and to your room because there could be animals around. Very nice restaurant with romantic candlelight and warm little fire. Great buffet. Be aware that there are many mosquitos in August!

Great location for us to host you, the clients. Not sure why Mosquito's are so bad this year, good news as that they are not the Malaria carrying variety! We hope to host you again at The Bluff.

I've stayed here quite a few times now and it's never a let down. Really friendly staff, lovely rooms, delicious food (must try the banoffee pie) and the most exquisite view you shall ever experience. Really beautiful setting and never disappointed with the wildlife - last time I saw leopard, lion and elephants along with loads of others. Another great...

The views from the main lodge and our private balcony were absolutely breathtaking. Our room was gorgeous (ensuite; beautiful wooden 4 poster bed). The staff were very helpful and friendly. Although we went when there was slightly less game around, this didn't impact our enjoyment of the experience at all. It was fantastic exploring the beautiful Tsavo park without hoards...

This is the second time we have been fortunate enough to visit Lions Bluff. The first time was four years ago and despite the lodge beginning to show the signs of some gentle wear and tear, this can be forgiven as there is nowhere I have visited which boasts such incredible views, such a charming ambience and such helpful, delightful...

Great that you returned to The Bluff and the view still worked its magic. Yes this Green season has been tougher than most BUT the second half of the year is looking much better for Kenya and The Bluff with great bookings. The staff really appreciated your comments and we look forward to your return.

What an incredible place. Perched atop the Lions Bluff, this quaint lodge offers 360 degree views LUMO conservancy, Taita hills sanctuary, Tsavo West National Park and Mt. Kilimanjaro. The staff were warm and helpful, the rooms beautiful and peaceful. Food was delicious and the surrounding reserve, filled with wildlife without the people.... For your sake, please visit.
