Lovely outlook from your jungle style room. Friendly staff and beautiful meals from the restaurant with views of the lions and meerkats

4/10 Fair

We have been coming here for 11 years now but not again. Still charging top dollar to stay here but very run down. Reception staff very hard to understand and they just answer “yes” to everything. Restaurant staff amazing, amazing explaining our tour and that we should have arrived an hour earlier for our meal that is included in the tour but we could come after tour. Time on receipt was 7pm and we arrived at 6.30pm. Night Safari was delayed because a large group arrived and we had to wait. We were put on 1 truck then asked to leave that truck and wait for the next. That felt so wrong. Many disappointments with the hotel and the park. My list could go on but we will not return. Guessing 2 less people will not make a difference but it will to us

Had a ton of fun here, really brings you back to a sense of childlike wonder for the animal kingdom. I booked a Twiga room, on the second floor. You’re close enough to toss carrots to the zebras in the free roaming zone below. It also came with a free safari pass. I thought it could be better that they don’t help you book events like Feed the Predator in advance after you book your room — we didn’t know we’d need to book it in advance so couldn’t do it the day we wanted to, and nearly missed out on the experience. The park itself is great and I definitely recommend checking out all the shows you can, each was better than I expected.

This is an amazing resort and experience. So beautiful with outlook from your balcony over an African panorama. Rhinos, zebras, wildebeest, giraffe to greet your morning coffee views. The staff are so excellent here in every area, genuine helpful friendliness caring to provide you the best stay experience. The Tsavo Lion restaurant is remarkable. Delicious breakfasts then the lunch and dinners are of 5 star quality and the service is truly exceptional! Watching the lions in their beautiful natural environment while dining is spectacular for both young and old. The park does an amazing job for the protection of animals and endangered species. Their breeding programs and introducing the animals back to their natural habitats is recognized by experts globally. Their animal and education shows teach children and adults the issues faced by animals from the environment and how we can help. The children’s interaction and closeness to these amazing animals brings hope to their future. This is a unique experience to stay at such a resort. An experience not to be missed!

Good value, fun attractions, needs comfort updates
The value of the room was good, because you get to walk around the park freely. The room could use some essential upgrades for comfort. One of the things needed is a misqiuo net. There were a lot of openings where bugs can get in so having some time cleaning and sealing is also wanted.
