Our family of five kicked off a wonderful start to our two week safari at Tawi. The ambience is gorgeous (the volcano toyed with us in the late afternoon-revealing only her snowy top and was in full glory the following morning). There were hoardes of happy animals (impala, giraffe, baboons) wandering throughout the lodge's grounds. The accommodations were both unique...

A friend and I stayed for 3 nights and days. The lodge is focused on providing a quality eco experience. It was comfortable, beautiful and a delight to stay there. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. Our guide Julius was wonderful and the chef Robin created wonderful meals. Wifi access was patchy which is understandable given the remote location.

Tawi is a really nicely designed lodge right near the reserve. Beautiful accommodations that allow for the animals to be viewed from your own private deck. I have to admit I sensed a bit of tension between the manager and his staff, but the staff itself could not have been more friendly. Our guide in particular was wonderful. All in...

Words are hard to come by when I'm describing this location. It was such a perfect place to stay with perfect views, staff, rooms, food--the entire package! It's not your blocked out style hotel, each individual lodge felt like a dream home.

I can't quite get the appropriate words to describe the experience we had a Tawi Lodge. The reception was fantastic! Staff courteous and prompt and the location is what I can describe as magical!! My friends and I received good class service and can't wait to visit the next property this management has to offer! Keep up the excellent work.

I think what we would love most about Tawi Lodge is the fantastic views of the Kilimanjaro from literally every corner of your room. If you are in the bathtub, the shower, your bed .. and yes even your toilet .. the view points straight at this might mountain. But what stays with me even more is the Elephants I...

I stayed here May 8-11,2016. I am a single traveler and was looked after like I was royalty. I specifically came to this area to see the elephants. The lodge is beautifully designed. When I arrived by personal driver I was met by Menno Bartlema who is the General Manager. He rushed me quickly outback to see the handsome male...

Likes the lodge facing Mt.Kilimanjaro.The rooms are quite nice though the newer ones are more spacious than the old ones but still comfortable.Water systems sometimes breaks down and you will not get hot water sometimes delaying your dinner times.
