Tsavo West, Taita Taveta, Kenya
This lovely old lodge was Kenya's first lodge in a national park. Timber, stone, and thatch buildings complement the natural wilderness surroundings and when it's not wreathed in clouds, there's a good view of Mt. Kilimanjaro. You can watch game and birds from any one of several viewing decks, or enjoy a drink in the bar carved out of rocks. En-suite rooms are decorated in the ubiquitous African-theme fabrics, but are comfortable and spacious. Buffet meals with plenty of variety are way above the average. You can book all sorts of activities at the lodge, including morning and afternoon game drives, bush breakfasts and dinners, and guided walks.
