Never seen so much beauty in the wild...the lodge is supported by pillars and has a small water reservoir under it where the animals come to drink water in the early mornings and evenings when the weather is cool....there is a tunnel that leads direct to where the animals are...there is a sign of no camera flashes as this scares...

This was an experience of a lifetime. A great establishment sorounded with a variety of world animals. You wake up to the sound from herd of buffalo's, antelopes and elephants drinking salt water near the lodge. Enjoyed a beautiful game drive. The rooms are strategically located inorder to have great view of the game reserve.

The resort is very nice, and the food was good. The travel to the hotel from Mombasa was very long, in fact it was very very long, about 6 hours on a bumpy road. The first day we did not see many animals, but on our last day we saw everything. So I would advise staying more than one night....

From the moment you enter the reception you can already see the elephants at only a few feet away from you drinking calmly at the water pool in front of the lodge. And the best thing you can sit yourself in a chair right in front of them, relax and enjoy these beautiful animals as they don't seem to bother...

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
