Accommodation

The accommodation will be based on two persons sharing a twin room where possible rooms with private bath can be requested. Single rooms are available at an additional cost and can be guaranteed on request. The lodges you will be staying at are Lion Bluff and Ngutuni Lodge.

Lions Bluff

Stunning panoramic views over the golden green savannah rolling away to the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, the North and South Pare mountains and the Taita Hills. This place is secluded in Lumo Community Wildlife Sanctuary amidst peace and quiet, yet easily accessible from Mombasa and Nairobi. Lions Bluff is an exclusive lodge, just twelve traditionally-built ensuite bandas from whose verandahs you can literally overlook wildlife, going about their daily life undisturbed.

Since this lodge is a conservation, the sanctuary preserves a unique ecosystem rich with wildlife, encompassing one of Africa's most ancient elephant migratory corridors, and an important breeding stay in a small, unique lodge of sustainable timber, canvas, and traditional coconut thatch. Sip sundowners on an open terrace with Kilimanjaro as the backdrop followed by dinner overlooking a small waterhole visited by a family of elephants.

You will sleep in a handmade four-poster bed in crisp cotton sheets and awake to Africa's incredible sunrise ready to enjoy a game drive or bush walk before a hearty breakfast, perhaps in the bush. By staying there, you will begin to conjure up the magic of the site for lions.

Ngutuni Lodge

Ngutuni Lodge is a luxury safari lodge located in the heart of a 10,000-acre private game sanctuary, surrounded on three sides by Tsavo East National Park. The lodge overlooks a waterhole and is set against the spectacular backdrop of the Sagala Hills, only a few hours drive from Mombasa and its international airport. Once home to the infamous 'man-eating lions of Tsavo' who preyed on men constructing the railway line between Mombasa and Kampala in the nineteenth century, the sanctuary and surrounding national park are best known today for their fantastic variety of wildlife including lion, cheetah, elephant, buffalo as well as a huge variety of plains game and bird's life.

Spectacularly constructed from large timber poles, with plunging thatched roofs and waxed timber decking, the lodge skillfully blends traditional African design with the modern comforts of a luxury lodge. From the moment you step into reception and gaze through the open plan restaurant to the savannah beyond, you will begin to realize how special the lodge is.

Location

The retreat will take place in Tsavo National Park area in Kenya. Tsavo National Park is one of the oldest and largest parks in Kenya at 13,747 square kilometers. Situated in a semi-arid area previously known as the Taru Desert, it opened in April 1948. It is located near the town of Voi in the Taita-Taveta District of Coast Province. The park is divided into east and west sections by the A109 road and a railway.

It was named after the Tsavo River, which flows west to east through the national park, it borders the Chyulu Hills National Park and the Mkomazi Game Reserve in Tanzania. The park can be accessed by three main gates, from Voi through the Manyani gate, from Mombasa through the Bachuma gate, or from Malindi through the Sala gate. There are also several airstrips in the park that allow chartered light planes. Inside the park, the Athi and Tsavo rivers converge to form the Galana River.

Most of the park consists of semi-arid grasslands and savanna. It is considered as one of the world's biodiversity strongholds due to the vast amounts of a diverse wildlife that can be seen including the famous 'Big five', such as Masai lion, black rhino, cape buffalo, elephant, and leopard. The park is also home to a great variety of bird life such as the black kite, Crowned crane, lovebird, and the sacred ibis.

The slightly larger Tsavo East National Park is generally flat, with dry plains across which the Galana River flows. Other features include the Yatta Plateau and Lugard Falls. Tsavo West National Park is more mountainous and wetter than its counterpart, with swamps, Lake Jipe and the Mzima Springs. It is known for bird life and for its large mammals. It is also home to a black rhino sanctuary.
