I was so looking forward to visiting this hotel and the location is indeed spectacular. The waiting staff in the restaurant are lovely. However they have serious issues with their reception staff and management. The hotel had been paid for me as a gift. I knew that it was an expensive place so when I arrived I had no idea...

Travelling from Arusha to Mombasa this is one place to stop for a night. The lodge being in a private conservancy has amazing view of the landscape. The water hole attracts animals which you can sit in the lounge and watch. All rooms are comfortable. Ask for the ones facing the waterhole...with the sunrise in the background. (weather permitted) Good...

Salt Lick is a picturesque and memorable lodge, starting with its unique design and location. I loved that we could view some of the animals right at the lodge e.g elephants, buffaloes and antelopes. The service by all the staff was equally impeccable. The lodge might need to improve on variety of their meals though.

The road is okay and navigable by a small car. The view was wonderful with the elephant herds coming to drink water by the hotel. Closest I have been to elephants. Rooms good but no AC, fan available.

It's in the interior of Voi so quite a long drive from Nairobi. The views, food and ambience were however v good. Nice rooms as well though they were small (the cheapest ones we stayed at). Would recommend esp for couples.

Perfect place to relax and enjoy the wild nature. If you want to get away from the craziness of the city this is the place to be.

We stayed here for 2 nights! The suspended rooms are quite ambient and cozy giving a brilliant view of the wild life. My boys had a great experience with elephants grazing right under their room. The food was fantastic, and the staff really hospitable. The game drives were great This lodge is truly iconic.

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
