Location is good, inside of park. Accomodation pretty poor, no air condition, food not good, swimming pool too small. Above al the most sad thing was looking from the window in empty waterhole and only 2-3 poor animals searching for water. You are in the midlle of savannah without animals.. it is not what you expect from safari. It was...

Although this lodge is in a good setting right inside the park, it lacks any charm and atmosphere. It seems too modern and you are too isolated from the animals by a large electric fence. The floodlights at night shine onto close by trees instead of onto the open area where the animals are gathered. Food was average buffet type...

The location of the resort is excellent but unfortunately nothing much else is. We stayed in the tented accommodation which was nice on the inside but the tent itself was a bit tired with some holes around the zip. Not great when combined with the fact that no mosquito nets were available. The pool is far too small for the...

Although the setting of Ashnil is excellent (we saw zebras and giraffes from the pool area!), the quality of the tented lodges and food was disappointing. Having stayed at other rented lodges on our trip, these were definitely the least luxurious. Most disappointing was the lack of a mosquito net for the bed. The food is buffet style and the...

Me and my husband spend one night here at the beginning of January 2017. It was our first accommodation in a reserve as part of a 5 days safari in Kenya, but our least favorite. The lodge has a very good location, just in the middle of Tsavo East National Park, near the Aruba Dam. Game viewing was excellent, including...

The lodge was very clean and comfortable. Our room was spacious, well equipped with an amazing bathroom. We asked for a view on a little water whole where animals come to drink. The staff was nice and client oriented. Internet was available however only at the bar (which is good if you want to switch of). We really enjoyed the...

My husband and I stayed at Ashnil Aruba for 1 night during our safari in Jan 2017. The lodge is in a great location in Tsavo East for wildlife sighting. The grounds and the lodge itself are well kept. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We stayed in a luxury tent, which was very nice. I would definitely...
