We stayed 1 night, 2 days at this lodge. Rooms were 'basic' (bed, shower, toilet, sink) but I loved it. You get African feelings. Swimming pool was very nice. You can see some antilopes and baboons from the pool. You can take a hike on the rock that is situated next to the camp. Amazing view! The owners are sweet....

An ideal location for a break during your trip from Nairobi to the coast (ore vice versa). Just branch off in Maungu (near Voi) and drive 10 km into the bush. Rock Side Camp (former Westermann's Safari Camp) is nestled at the foot of Kale Hill, an impressive rock which you can (and should!) climb for the scenic views from...

Nana and Mark were wonderful hosts. We were made to feel at home right away. Accommodation is in chalets that are well constructed and maintained. The view over the plains from the camp nestled below a large granite kopje is amazing. Food and service is excellent. The entire camp is neat as a pin.

A hidden gem in the wilderness, away from the modern & fast moving world. Service & hospitality are key values here. Climbing the "Rock" is a must! great views and good excercise :-) What an experience to take a swim and watch the elephants approach up to 20 meters. advisory!

Perfect peace and quiet, nice chalets, hot showers, cold beer and excellent food, the organisation and staff were perfect. The back drop of the Rock and the view...

Whilst on our way to Mombasa we spent one night at the very friendly Rock Side Camp. The location is superb, with great views over the plains of Tsavo and a waterhole near the pool so you can have a close look at wildlife while floating about. Service is splendid and the food is very nice as well. We stayed...

We have been fortunate to stay in this unique camp on two occasions now and are in awe of the owners who continue to deliver a first rate level of service in a camp which runs like clock-work! Rock Side enjoys a splendid location with stunning views and a surprising level of visiting wildlife (especially the elephants in the evenings!)....

My partner and I stayed here for two weeks and had a thoroughly fabulous time. The accommodation was perfect; very clean, comfortable room, bed and bathroom, and the views from the bungalow were to die for. The staff were impeccable in every way, and far and away the best of any of the many lodges and camps we have stayed...

We spend 10 days during Easter at Rock Side Camp. I was amazed about the location. The views are absolutely stunning. After a 3 days stay at a beach hotel in Mombasa we were pleasantly surprised about this place. The staff was super friendly, very efficient and absolutely trustful. They were very good with our kids. Especially the waiters were...

“We stayed in one of the new stone cottages which are excellent. They have a private veranda with a view, and excellent beds and bathroom. The wooden cabins look a bit dated and dark, so you might want spend some extra on a stone cottage, which is well worth it.”
