Overview of Tawi Lodge

Tucked away on the southeastern border of Kenya with Tanzania, Tawi Lodge lies in the shadow of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro in Amboseli National Park. This extraordinary destination boasts diverse landscapes, from acacia woodlands and giant palm forests to dusty dry lake beds and lush green swamps nourished by the snowmelt of Kilimanjaro. Set in the heart of its own expansive 3,000-acre private conservancy, Tawi Lodge offers flexibility to extend your afternoon game drive into a night drive, as well as enjoy guided walks in the reserve.

As an eco-award-winning lodge, Tawi combines innovative green practices, unpretentious luxury with complementing accents of contemporary style, allowing you to enjoy the lodge and surroundings with a minimised carbon footprint. The lodge overlooks a popular waterhole and offers exceptional views of the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro. Whether shrouded in clouds or revealed in all its glory, Mount Kilimanjaro captivates with its snowy peak, a sight that defies its equatorial location.

One of the true highlights of being in Amboseli is that the park is home to Kenya’s largest elephant herds. The sight of these gentle giants strolling gracefully and across the landscape creates a breath-taking scene and offers incredible photographic opportunities. Amboseli National Park is popular for good reason, but by basing yourself at Tawi Lodge, you have access to game drives in the national park and away from any crowds in their private concession.

    Dining

    Start your day with a delightful tray of hot tea and coffee delivered to your cottage at sunrise, preparing you for an exciting game drive. Never to miss an opportunity for a snack stop, your guide will pick a spot while out on the game drive for coffee and a light breakfast picnic. Head back to camp where the chef will be ready and waiting for your brunch orders, which can be enjoyed out on the lodge deck in the shade of the towering acacia trees.

    In the afternoon, you can look forward to a sumptuous high tea before your afternoon game drive. A delicious spread of sweet and savoury snacks to give you the kick start you might need after a relaxing few hours spent at the pool or spa. The blanket of stars that grace the night sky brings on a delicious star and lantern-lit dinner. Each meal is made from the freshest ingredients, including organic greens grown right in the lodge’s kitchen gardens.
