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...

Superb lodgings, food and company. Great kitchen and staff, In the park so many animals and also near the lodge: Elephants (4), Giraffe, Monkeys (I like them), Zebra, Cheetas. Waking up looking at Kilimanjaro is wonderful.

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.

One of the very good properties I have stayed in, you get up to the sounds of birds chirping. Large, luxurious rooms, very friendly staff. Food is really, really very good. They take extra care. Lovely bar and lounge where one can relax in the evenings.

We've stayed at a variety of game lodges in South Africa, but none has been as good as Tawi, which respects the bush but also provides the right amount of luxury. They are in a conservancy adjacent to the Amboseli Reserve and have their own borehole, so there's a water hole for game at the edge of the lush lawn,...

This was my third safari and I was delighted to spend time at Tawi Lodge. It was my first stop on the way through Kenya and I could not have chosen a better place to start my safari. I wish now I'd stayed longer! There are several bandas, or thatch-roofed cottages, all of which face Mt. Kilimanjaro. Mine had it's...

We returned here after our wonderful experience last year, and it was equally enjoyable. It is situated in the conservancy area just outside of Amboselli National Park, both with extensive animal life. The "tents" are wonderful, and this time a fantastic view of Kilimanjaro from our front deck. The rooms are spacious, as is the bathroom area, and I still...

Everything is perfect at Tawi: the food, the staff, the rooms (my personal favorite is the bathtub from which you can see Mt Kilimandjaro), the wildlife at the waterhole. This is truly one of the best African experiences you can make.

We spent 3 days at this magnificent resort and all of our (already high) expectations were exceeded. There was an abundance of wildlife that presented itself throughout the day at the watering hole, so we enjoyed an almost non-stop show of elephants, giraffes, zebra's, wildebeest while having breakfast lunch and dinner. Meals in itself already were of excellent quality, and...

After a hot drive from Nairobi, though very scenic with clear views of Mt. Kilimanjaro, we checked in just before lunch. Check in was quick with a welcome drink and cold towel. The rooms lavishly set up with a large sleeping area and with a fire place possibly used in the Kenyan winter. The bath area is well fitted with...
