Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge - Kenya Safari packages

Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge offers an unparalleled safari experience. The entire lodge is raised on high stilts above watering holes and feeding pastures offering a spectacular view of the wildlife from above and all around. The Lodge is situated in the midst of the Taita Hills Sanctuary, a private wildlife conservancy of 28,000 acres at the foot of the Taita Hills bordering Tsavo West National Park, one of the world’s largest game reserves.

The Sanctuary provides a safe environment to over 50 species of mammals and 300 species of birds within 28,000 acres of rolling savanna and woodland habitats. Large numbers of wildlife come to drink at the waterholes, so Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge provides a rare opportunity to view animals at close proximity in their natural habitat. The lobby, restaurant and terraced bar all provide excellent views and photographic opportunities, while an underground tunnel and bunker with ground level windows provides unbelievably close yet safe access to a variety of wildlife as they drink. The waterholes are illuminated by powerful floodlights as it gets dark, to make sure that you witness all the activity throughout the night.

 

The Sanctuary is a success story in sustainable conservation where wildlife - including elephant, lion, buffalo and giraffe - thrive. Game drives are tightly controlled to ensure that animals are not harassed and some areas are completely closed to vehicles. This commitment to responsible ecotourism, which has been so well supported by visitors, ensures that the Sanctuary and all its wildlife will continue to prosper.

 

Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge

 

The Sarova Salt Lick Game Lodge offers luxury accommodation and facilities and is the perfect place in an unforgettable setting to explore the natural environment around.

ACTIVITIES:
Game Viewing
Early morning and late afternoon game drives provide an ideal opportunity to view and photograph the diverse array of wildlife within the Sanctuary. The waterholes below provide a wonderful opportunity to view animals at close proximity in their natural habitat. The lobby and terraced bar offer excellent views and photographic opportunities, while an underground tunnel and bunker with ground level windows provides unbelievably close yet safe access to a variety of animals as they drink.

 

Night Game Drives
Night game drives provide guests with an opportunity of seeing animals not usually encountered on a daytime game drive such as spotted and striped hyena, mongoose, jackal, civet, genet, porcupine and bushbaby. Most predators are more active at night, so night drives also provide the opportunity of experiencing the ‘circle of life’. Our highly trained rangers equipped with powerful spotlights take guests for this experience of a totally different world after dark, when you may have the thrilling opportunity to see a predator actively hunting.

 

Nature Walks
The Sanctuary offers many diverse opportunities for you to experience the unique flora, fauna and culture of this fascinating ecosystem. Take a nature walk with a qualified ranger guide, where the emphasis is on the natural environment you encounter as you walk leisurely through the bush. Marvel at the wildlife normally unnoticed during a game drive but evident on foot, yet still important through their impact on the ecology of this diverse ecosystem.

 

Excursions
Visit a local and authentic village where you can learn about local cultures, spend a day at Mzima Springs in Tsavo West National Park, famous for its thriving populations of hippos and crocodiles, or visit Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary or Lake Jipe, both also in Tsavo West. Alternatively, spend the day in Tsavo East National Park, where you can visit popular sites such as Aruba Dam and Lugards Falls, or make an excursion to the nearby Taita Hills, with spectacular views, indigenous forests and rural markets. The region to the west of the Sanctuary is also rich in World War I history, while a crater lake near the Tanzanian border is a mere 60km away.

 

Swimming
A beautiful free form swimming pool is open all day at the sister property Sarova Taita Hills Game Lodge located nearby.

 

Wildlife Talks
informative wildlife presentation in the evening by a qualified ecologist/ranger is arranged on request.

 

Curio Shop
There is a wide selection of souvenirs available at the Sarova Taita Hills Game Lodge’s gift shop located in the lobby area of the lodge.
