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.
