Tawi Lodge

Serene luxury at the foot of Kilimanjaro

A lodge of harmony

The water hole, visible from all our facilities, main lodge, bars, dining room, lounges and spa, is very popular among elephants, zebra, Impala, kudus, gerenuk and the local wildlife. Some of the 400+ bird species in the Amboseli ecosystem nest in our trees. You are really in an oasis. The Tawi style is a harmonious combination of modern comfort and African tradition.

TAWI LODGE is located on a private conservancy of 6,000 acres just five minutes from Kimana Gate, the eastern entrance to Amboseli National Park.

TAWI Lodge is settled at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro (5,963m) – the world’s largest free-standing mountain. 

Safari Cottages



Filled from our bore hole, solar heated yet comfortably cool for refreshing morning, afternoon or evening dips. If your timing is right, you will enjoy your swim while looking at the elephants bathing in the nearby water hole right in front of you. There is also a wading pool for the smaller ones.

Bars and Lounges

4 different lounges with deep comfortable sofas, safari chairs, recliners serviced by 2 bars for a drink, a read, relaxing… by the fire place or the wildlife water hole. Day or evening.
You can also choose our “bush lounge” for a magical sundowner drink and bitings. This one is situated on a different spot everyday with view on the Kilimanjaro, surrounded by the sounds of the African bush, birds and the wildlife.


European influenced chefs will use some of our fresh organically grown produce and the local community’s products to offer you a blend of African-Swahili and European gourmet 3 course lunches and 4 course dinners.
Breakfast or dinner in the bush are also unforgettable experiences you should try.
Tawi lodge can cater to special diets or requirements if you wish. Regular food & wine paring events are taking place and the traditional African dinner in the “boma” with barbecue and Maasai traditional dances.
