We only stayed here one night, but wished we could have stayed for longer! It is a lodge set in the national park built upon stilts which made you feel you were really in amongst the wildlife. When we got there the super friendly man who helped us with our cases and showed us to our room, pointed out that...

I went to salt lick and i looooved everything about it. The staff was friendly and very helpful, the food was amazing, the rooms were clean and cosy though a bit too small. The rooms overlooked the watering hole so we were able to see the animals from up there. My experience at salt lick was the best. I will...

What an incredible idea! This camp floats above the fantastic Taita Hills reserve, attracting all kinds of wild animals. Elephants absolutely love this place, we even had rival herds turn up at one point! There's an underground tunnel where you can go down and get right into the action, and elephants seem to love scratching on it. The rooms are...

We stayed here as part of our safari with Julius Thuvi safaris. Check-in was friendly and professional, and we were allocated a room opposite the watering holes (do make sure that you request a room facing the watering hole, or the view from your room won't be very impressive). The room itself was wonderfully quirky - they are raised up...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of the private Taita Hills Sanctuary, bordering Tsavo West National Park in south-eastern Kenya, Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge is a truly unique concept consisting of 96 rooms elevated on stilts, each overlooking a waterhole and linked by suspended walkways. At night, the waterholes are floodlit ensuring that you enjoy an uninterrupted view of the numerous animals arriving to quench their thirst. The elevated restaurant, and the bar a level higher, also offer stunning views of the sanctuary and are the ideal vantage points to view game. The lodge has its own fleet of well-equipped safari vehicles with excellent guides. The climate is very moderate with temperatures averaging between 18 and 30 degrees Celsius all year round. There are sporadic rains in March, April, November and December. Due to the unique layout of the lodge, it is not suitable for children below 8 years. Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge is 400 km from Nairobi and 200 km from Mombasa. The lodge is a one-hour flight from Nairobi or 30 minutes from Mombasa by private charter which lands at the Lodge's own airstrip. The Sanctuary is a 3-hour drive from Mombasa and a 6-hour drive from Nairobi on tarmac roads. So, if you intend to make the most out of your African safari holidays, Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge is the right place to be. No matter if you plan to head-over to Nairobi or Mombasa, the Lodge turns out to be a perfect check-in option. ... more   less
