I have been to a few game parks and lodges but this one is by far the best. Stunning setting and animals around the water hole all the time. It is amazing - I just sat there for hours watching the hundreds of Elephants, Zebra, Buffalo and all types of Antelope. Even a male lion in the middle of the...

Salt Lick was an incredible surprise! No matter how many photos you see before, the experience itself is out of this world. The little houses on stilts appear in the distance like a dream. Please make sure you will arrive just before noon so that you don't miss the elephants. There were hundreds of them in the whole valley exactly...

Book this lodge if you enjoy wildlife. The water hole means the animals come right up to the lodge. You can view them from the bar veranda, the main hotel or from your bedroom window - there is also a tunnel that takes you right up to a view point at the watering hole so you can be even closer...

Salt lick lodge was the highlight of our 4 day safari! The rooms are large and comfortable and many of them overlook the waterholes.

I was so looking forward to visiting this hotel and the location is indeed spectacular. The waiting staff in the restaurant are lovely.

Travelling from Arusha to Mombasa this is one place to stop for a night. The lodge being in a private conservancy has amazing view of the landscape. The water hole attracts animals which you can sit in the lounge and watch. All rooms are comfortable. Ask for the ones facing the waterhole...with the sunrise in the background.

Salt Lick is a picturesque and memorable lodge, starting with its unique design and location. I loved that we could view some of the animals right at the lodge e.g elephants, buffaloes and antelopes. The service by all the staff was equally impeccable. The lodge might need to improve on variety of their meals though.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of the private Taita Hills Sanctuary, bordering Tsavo West National Park in south-eastern Kenya, Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge is a truly unique concept consisting of 96 rooms elevated on stilts, each overlooking a waterhole and linked by suspended walkways. At night, the waterholes are floodlit ensuring that you enjoy an uninterrupted view of the numerous animals arriving to quench their thirst. The elevated restaurant, and the bar a level higher, also offer stunning views of the sanctuary and are the ideal vantage points to view game. The lodge has its own fleet of well-equipped safari vehicles with excellent guides. The climate is very moderate with temperatures averaging between 18 and 30 degrees Celsius all year round. There are sporadic rains in March, April, November and December. Due to the unique layout of the lodge, it is not suitable for children below 8 years. Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge is 400 km from Nairobi and 200 km from Mombasa. The lodge is a one-hour flight from Nairobi or 30 minutes from Mombasa by private charter which lands at the Lodge's own airstrip. The Sanctuary is a 3-hour drive from Mombasa and a 6-hour drive from Nairobi on tarmac roads. So, if you intend to make the most out of your African safari holidays, Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge is the right place to be. No matter if you plan to head-over to Nairobi or Mombasa, the Lodge turns out to be a perfect check-in option. ... more   less
