We stayed 3 nights at Tawi. From arrival to departure, everything worked perfect. Ron, the general manager, gives a figure to the lodge. He was friendly, explanatory and made our stay a memorable one. Panian, our maasai guide, was a lovely personality. We had wonderful walks around the lodge with him. As an advice, if you have a maasai village visit, don't return to lodge with the car and have a walk with Panian from the village to the lodge. Our guide, Dominic, was also great. We had near perfect game drives with him. He was respectful, helpful and knowledgeable. We had nice chats during our game drives with him. Titus, the headwaiter, was helpful and friendly. The food was great. All the staff made their job very well. The rooms were comfortable, all facing to Kilimanjaro. There was a busy waterhole just front of the main building. Nearly every time there were some animals at the waterhole, including elephants, zebras, giraffes etc. There was a small natural swimming pool. We wanted to swim with the fishes in it, but the weather was cold, so we couldn't. Maybe this was the only disapointment for us about our stay. The lodge is in a conservancy near Amboseli NP. İt takes 5-10 minutes from the lodge to the gate of Amboseli. But as there is no fence around the park, you can still see some animals on the way, especially giraffes and ele's. It is an ecofriendly lodge. Also some part of the money you paid is going to the community and conservancy, which means you are being a part of conservation of the wildlife. This is a good thing to know, as all african wildlife, especially elephants, is in great danger because of poaching. As a last word; what makes a place memorable and great, is the management and the staff. Tawi proved it again.
