The wifi was strong throughout the lodge and our room. We weren't able to use the pool due to our safari schedule but it looked nice. The highlight of the lodge...

Kilaguni (which means baby rhino in swahily) is a wonderful lodge with incredible views of the Chuly Hills. From what our guide told us, it is the best option for Tsavo West. Luxury rooms with volcanic stone walls, private terrace and a view to die for. The pool is also very nice and taking a swim in between safaris is...

Kilaguni Safari Lodge provides one of the best Safari Lodge experiences I've ever engaged in. The dining hall is beautifully situated where almost every chair at every table has a breathtaking view of the Chuly Hills and the wide variety of wildlife that comes to the watering hole they've perfectly positioned at the back of their property. There is no...

I first stayed at Kilaguni in 1985 and it has stayed in my memory ever since. I was slightly reluctant to return just in case it didn't live up to my wonderful memories. I needn't have worried as it was just as fantastic if not better. We had room 14 which had an excellent view over the water holes and...
