The lodge with a view

Below the lodge runs an ancient elephant migratory corridor, which links Lake Jipe in Tsavo West with the Galana River in Tsavo East. Here large matriarchal herds of dust-red elephant lead their offspring to wallow in the lodge’s waterhole.

Here too, descendants of the famous Tsavo lions breed amongst the rocky bluffs. No ordinary lions, these brave and highly intelligent lions are the descendants of a pair of notorious lions known as The Ghost and the Darkness. The killers of 30 workers on the so-called ‘Lunatic Express’ railway in 1898, these two man-eaters now stand in the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago and were lately the inspiration for a film also entitled ‘The Ghost and the Darkness’.

Lions Bluff Lodge has three types of rooms all taking advantage of the incredible vista stretching over the grass plains of the Lumo Conservancy.Eleven of the rooms are built out from the hill on wooden stilts,with wooden floors, canvas walls and traditional coconut palm thatch roofs, one is built in the same style but with ferrous cement walls and private canvas walled verandah.
