Accommodation rating: Good Standard
Located in the Lumo Community Wildlife Sanctuary, between Tsavo West National Park and the coast, Lion’s Bluff Lodge has 12 rooms and is a mid-range safari lodge spectacularly located at the end of a ridge. This small, unique lodge, made of sustainable timber, canvas and traditional coconut thatch is both sustainable and comfortable and all the rooms are on a wooden deck mounted high above the sloping ridge, with a jutting, west-facing veranda, protected by wooden rails and furnished with canvas and wooden camp chairs. Sip sundowners with Kilimanjaro as the backdrop and enjoy dinner overlooking a small waterhole, often visited by elephants.
Early morning and late afternoon wildlife drives are the principal activity, as well as nature walks with the Lion's Bluff ornithologist. There are a good number of savanna animals, with as many as 1,000 buffaloes, and about 100 elephants. Predators are less common. There are at least a dozen lions, but leopards are few and rarely seen, and cheetahs are only present in small numbers as they move in and out of the sanctuary. The Lumo bird list stands at 360 species.
