Afew days ago as you might know by now i had a short trip to the Tsavos that i am here to leave a short read about. There isn’t so much to say so am hoping the photos kinda does that for me.

The restaurant and reception area.

Bordering Tsavo west National Park Kipalo hills is perched on the side of idyllic lightly lush green forested mbulia hills in Mbulia Conservancy enjoying extensive views across the Conservancy towards Ngulia Hills and Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance. Intimate and cosy the lodge features 6 secluded tents that are built to take the best advantage of the beautiful expansive views across the plains , a spacious restaurant and an outdoor pool.

Fusing a pared-back simplicity with a rustic edge, Kipalo hills is a luxury hideaway perfect for those seeking a back-to-nature escape affording an opportunity to reconnect and re-energise. Lazy mornings can be spent luxuriating by the pool, before heading out on foot for a guided nature walk or going on an early morning game drive in one of the Tsavos but that comes at fee (10k and you still pay for your park entry, the vehicle and the driver)

Restaurant pool view.

The pool area was equally thoughtfully designed to take advantage of the captivating views of the vast plains. On a clear day Chyulu hills, five sisters, Ngulia hills, Salaita hills and Mt Kilimanjaro are a spectacular view.

A great spot to watch the sunset from also. This’s where i spent all my evenings.
A view from the restaurant.
I stayed in tent 3 which is also used mostly for honey mooners. The views are breath taking. Tent 6 offers equally great views.

Among the things i didn’t like about the lodge was that my bush breakfast coffee was served cold.

I don’t know about your location but the heat over here is unbearable, forgive me if i end this post prematurely, i could use some pool time. Till next time, 🥂

My two cents, there isn’t a place i have visited that i wouldn’t visit again except for Kipalo hills. I wouldn’t go back.
