Mount Kilimanjaro…

5963 meters, by itself in the middle of the plains, every element of our facilities facing it, its constant presence cannot be denied.

The majestuous mountain together with the countless elephants you will encounter in the Tawi conservancy and Amboseli National park only ten minutes away, will impose themselves as the backdrop of your stay with us.

In the dry South Kenya landscape, the lodge is hidden in the middle of indigenous trees, plants and garden all contributing to its oasis feel.

Our gold rating awarded by “Eco-tourism Kenya” does not have to mean comfort restrictions. 13 luxury cottages with 4 post beds and comfortable mattress, private wooden deck, chimney, showers and Victorian baths. Your stay will also be enhanced by the gourmet cuisine throughout, accompanied by fine wines from our cellar.

4 different lounges with deep couches, 2 bars to have a drink, read, relax by the fire place or our own water hole known to attract all the wildlife of the area. 

Reaching Tawi lodge:

You can fly to Tawi lodge by plane landing at Amboseli airstrip, or should you wish to charter your own plane, we have a private landing strip.

In both cases, we will come to pick you up with our vehicle.

By road, Mombasa road to Emali, at the exit go right on the loitokitok road to Kimana, a few hundred meters after exiting Kimana turn right at all the signposts. You will find a large Tawi sign board approximately 15 kms into the track. You do not usually need a 4×4 to reach the lodge, it is safe to give us a call before hand to inquire about the actual state of this last portion as heavy rains can make it complicated temporarily.

Relax at the bar, restaurant or heated swimming pool with an exquisite surrounding

Under the umbrella shade of the enormous Tortillis accacia trees, you have an extensive view of Kilimanjaro and the wetlands where the animals come to drink and play.  It is such a fantastic experience to enjoy your favorite drink while witnessing the life of the big elephants playing in the mud just a few meters in front of you.

The attention to detail and the excellent and friendly service is particularly noticed whilst dining. Fine cuisine with selected produce grown in our own organic gardens irrigated with water from the Kilimanjaro surfaces through volcanic rocks and creates a very fertile soil. Your senses will be delighted by a blend of spices from the Swahili Coast.
Before and after dinner, relax by the campfire, or at our very special tree-bar, sit on the sundowner couch and listen to the magical sounds of the African bush- all this under the spectacular African sky where the stars seem brighter than anywhere else.

The style of the lodge is a harmonious combination of modern (for your comfort) and traditional (to remind you that you are in Africa). Each Safari cottage has its own wooden-deck veranda with

Fabulous view on the highest mountain in Africa
