Kenya Private Reserve | Ngutuni Safari Lodge
Ngutuni Lodge is a luxury safari lodge located in the heart of a 10,000 acre private game sanctuary, surrounded on three sides by Tsavo East National Park. The lodge overlooks a water hole and is set against the spectacular backdrop of the Sagala Hills, only 2.5 hours drive from Mombasa and its international airport.
Once home to the infamous 'man eating lions of Tsavo' who preyed on men constructing the railway line between Mombasa and Kampala in the nineteenth century, the sanctuary and surrounding national park are best known today for their fantastic variety of wildlife including lion, cheetah, elephant, buffalo as well as a huge variety of plains game and bird life.
Spectacularly constructed from large timber poles, with plunging thatched roofs and waxed timber decking, the lodge skillfully blends traditional African design with the modern comforts of a luxury lodge. From the moment you step into reception and gaze through the open plan restaurant to the savannah beyond you begin to realise why this is such a special lodge.
Life at Ngutuni follows a delightful routine, early mornings and late afternoons are spent game viewing as this is the best time to observe animals foraging for food in the surrounding savannah. Evenings are spent relaxing with safari companions; time to enjoy a sundowner overlooking the softly illuminated waterhole before a sumptuous dinner. Finally enjoy a few quiet moments under star lit skies as you savour the lights and sounds of the African bush.
