This was our second stay at Ngulia, we travel on a budget and we enjoyed Tsavo west and Ngulia last time and were happy to stay again, sure its dated and basic but it was very clean, the food was good and the staff lovely and what a location on the edge of the escarpmenti. Elephants having their fun in...

Visited Tsavo-West National Park and stayed at Ngulia Safari Lodge. Lodge is nicely situated in the park with great view over the planes. At 20 meters distance from the lodge is little water hole which also attracts game during the day. upon arrival we had spotted elephants, waterbuck and monkeys. Following morning a surprise visit of big Buffalo herd. Lodge...

We really loved this place. It was so quiet and peaceful, with magnificent views of the surrounding valleys. All of the local animals really love the watering hole provided by the hotel, and in the evening two Leopards came to the scaffold to eat some small pieces of meat that were left up there by the staff. Many elephants, baboons,...

We stayed in three different lodges/camps over the course of a 4 day safari in Kenya. Sadly, our experiences at the other camps were much better than this place. The pool was out of action, and the entire place looks like it hasn't seen any investment since it was first built. The food is fine, but again, low quality compared...

I spent 1 night as part of a safari with a group of 5 people. We took 3 rooms. I will not talk too much about the microscopic portions of food we were served (the best was when 3 of us ordered 3 creme caramel and we received one full and 2 halves). The real shame happened the morning we...

Loved our stay at ngulia. You get a stunning view every morning when having breakfast, you are literally above the clouds (since ngulia lodge is higher up in elevation). Food was just okay but the area totally makes up for it. Our room wasn't anything fancy but it was big enough and had everything we needed. We also had an...

I loved it here! Ok, yes the rooms are outdated and the bedspreads are those old fashioned hotel kinds (that would be my number one recommendation of them to update) BUT! I loved it here. It has oodles of character, a wonderful staff and plus...there are leopards in case you missed that point from the other reviews. Right away we...

We spent 2 nights at the Ngulia Safari Lodge in Tsavo West National Park. We absolutely loved the setting of the hotel. The rooms were nice and neat with sparkling clean restrooms. The setting of the dining room offers one an amazing experience of being close to wildlife whilst enjoying one's dinner. My one and only complaint was the standard...

Fine for just one night. Got to see the leopard because they put the bait out a guy had been there for a few nights and it was the first time it had been. So it was good didn't get to see leopard out on a actual safari. Food was ok nothing special rooms were quite cramped but fine for...

We stayed in Ngulia Safari Lodge one night in between our safari days. The most impressive thing for us was the view from terrace to the field and hills surrounding the lodge. Hence, you can actually see animals like elephants passing by and even coming close to the lodge so you have a chance to see them from like 30...
