Ngulia Safari Lodge

Tsavo West, Taita Taveta, Kenya

High on the edge of the Ndawe escarpment with panoramic views of the plains below, this unassuming, basic lodge offers all the generic game park activities (not included) plus spacious en-suite rooms all overlooking the wide savanna. Thatch and wood bandas (thatch and canvas bungalows) raised just above ground level, each with its own veranda, blend in aesthetically with the bush environment. Inside they have tiled floors and brightly colored soft furnishings. There's a pool surrounded by flowering shrubs and trees, two bars, and a restaurant with good home-cooked food. Because the lodge is in the park, you don't have to travel far to see lots of big game: lions, cheetahs, a leopard if you're lucky, elephants, buffalos, and hundreds of pretty little gazelles.

PROS

  • lodge overlooks a watering hole
  • you have a good chance of seeing a leopard

CONS

  • bathrooms are dated
  • pool area is not shady
