Our first visit to Kenya and we stayed here for one night during our safari trip that we had booked with Shadrack and Glorious Safaris and we thought it was marvellous. It is a magical place overlooking the plains of Tsavo East and the view is just breathtaking.
We were greeted with cold juice and a fresh towel to freshen up with, which was great after a long dusty drive.
After a swift check in, we went straight for lunch and we sat in a lovely open restaurant with amazing views.. From the restaurant and bar you look straight down on a very busy watering hole where all kinds of animals come to drink, especially the elephants.
We sat and ate our lunch overlooking a small herd of ele’s who had come to visit for a drink. We heard the grumbles and rumbles of the elephants as we ate which was a truly incredible experience. The food was fresh and very tasty and the staff very friendly and attentive, lovely breakfast, lunch and evening meals.
There are lovely gardens to wander around and lots of Rock Hyraxes’ sunning themselves on the rocks, there is also a pool and bar again with stunning views over the African plains.
Our room was clean, bright and modern, with a lovely en-suite bathroom with lots of hot water. The beds were really comfortable, complete with full mosquito nets around them. Our room overlooked the watering hole and at dawn the next morning the view was fabulous, beautiful colours of the dawn sky and lots of elephants. Just amazing!
After lunch we visited the hide, which is located at the bottom of the gardens. It was so fantastic to get so close to the elephants, you were so close, (only a few feet away) you could even hear them breathing. We even visited the hide at night which was just magical as we watched a poor baby elephant falling asleep on its mother as she was drinking. Bless!
I would definitely recommend the Voi Safari Lodge for overnight stop on safari, a fabulous place. Please feel free to ask me any questions; I’ll be more than happy to respond.
