Bucketlist destination come true
My girl friends and I arrived in Tawi in the month of February 2021 to celebrate my Big 40. The lodge is tucked away in the Tawi conservancy area and offers a wide array of game for viewing as well as amazing vistas of the Kilimanjaro. Tawi Lodge is an intimate Haven of luxury and caters quite well for the Traveller looking to lay back and unwind. Staff and the Managers Alison and Pete were ever so helpful and warm and they created an aura of tranquility, homeliness and perfect relaxation. The complimentary cake and birthday barbeque set out on the front lawn overlooking the pool area was the icing on the cake. I'd recommend Tawi Lodge highly because at Tawi you get to meet heart people, a team of workmates who relate like family and a place that will always remind you what an amazing location the Amboseli is.
Remarkable service & accommodation!!
From the minute we arrived at Tawi to our reluctant departure, everything about this place was just spectacular. We did not want to leave. It's intimate, so cozy and has amazing amenities. The people here are truly what makes Tawi so outstanding. It didn't matter what time of day or night, service was ALWAYS SUPERB!! The rooms are so beautiful and intimate, comfortable beds, wonderful views and they even have a soaking tub. I could have just sat and gazed at the watering hole the whole day. Don't deprive yourself of this marvel. GO!!
Incredible nature paradise
Everything bout Tawi was just incredible! Peter and Alison and their beyond wonderful team made us feel so very welcome and special from the first to the last minute. The location at the foot of Kili is just a dream and if you are looking for that special place in the wild, this is it! Service and food are just impeccable the the wildlife that you see at all hours of the day without even leaving your room will make you feel like you are dreaming! Thank you for this unforgettable stay! xo
Understated luxury and a friendly vibe
The lodge is hidden away in the Tawi Conservancy just outside Amboseli National Park. The 13 well spaced cottages have views across the park to Mount Kilimanjaro that at the moment has snow on the summit. The cottages and lodge seem to capture an atmosphere of relaxed but not over the top luxury and as a previous reviewer said the excellent staff are "unobtrusively attentive" - a testament to good management. The lodge is a perfect place to relax in the middle of the day between ventures unto the conservancy and the national park with a large pool and various attractive niches to read or snooze. The food is excellent and our dietary preferences were easily accommodated. As in most Kenya hotels and lodges Covid regulations are strictly observed. Our guide, Julius has an impressive level of knowledge whether it is on the hundreds of elephants we saw, or the many species of birds, insects and trees. We went on a couple of game drives and also on a walk in the conservancy that gives a different perspective. The national park is in good condition and teeming with wildlife. With fewer visitors this is a very good time to visit - we were mainly by ourselves when stopping for animals.
This was the perfect romantic getaway for my boyfriend and I. The accommodation is spectacular with views of the watering hole and kilimanjaro from the four poster bed, spacious bathtub, shower and even the toilet. Food was delicious and plentiful and we loved the sundowners. Pete and Ali were attentive hosts and did everything they could for me when i wasn't feeling well with an upset stomach. Steven was a knowledgeable and friendly guide and we loved everything about our stay at Tawi Lodge.
