Ngulia Safari Lodge
Ngulia Safari Lodge is situated spectacularly on the edge of
Ndawe escarpment just below Ngulia Hills, overlooking the Rhino
Sanctuary, surrounded by scenic hills and offering a vast
panorama of Tsavo West's sweeping plains.
Ngulia is an ideal base from which to explore Tsavo West, one
of the world's largest national parks. All of the Big Five -
elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino - can be found here.
Ngulia Safari Lodge can be accessed from Nairobi (260 km away),
through Mtito Andei Gate or from Mombasa (250km away) through
Tsavo River Gate.
Ngulia Safari Lodge has 52 standard rooms, all with bath and
shower and a balcony with a view of the vast wilderness and
floodlit water holes.
It has two restaurants: The main restaurant – built in an
open-air style, has a view of floodlit water holes and the
Leopard dinning tree. There is also the Leopard view bar open in
the evenings before the arrival of the leopard from the
wilderness. Guests can enjoy their meals as they watch the
leopard feast, other animals drink water and the birds compete
in their melodies.
When in the heat, guests can swim in the lodge's pool. After
the dark, the waterloo by the lodge is floodlit allowing guests
to see the nocturnal animals coming in from the bush to quench
their thirst including the illusive leopard.
Here the guests have a rare chance of coming close to the
leopard in its natural environment as it comes for the baited
meat at the floodlit viewpoint, thus making Ngulia Safari Lodge
synonymous with leopard viewing.
