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.
