TAWI LODGE is located on a private conservancy of 6,000 acres just five minutes from Kimana Gate, the eastern entrance to Amboseli National Park. The Lodge is settled at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro (5,963m) - the world's largest free-standing mountain. The community-run conservancy, together with African WildlifeFoundation, promotes and maintains a harmonious development for the wildlife and the Maasai people along the corridor between Amboseli and the Chyulu Hills.
Tawi's twelve cottages all face the mighty Kilimanjaro, and windows afford views of the mountain's craggy peak even from the comfort of guest's bed or bathtub. Each cottage has its own wooden veranda, from which guests can observe elephants and giraffe grazing quite close;the view is unobstructed, as the fence which keeps out large wildlife is in a ditch surrounding the property. The style of the lodge is a harmonious combination of modern comforts and traditional-the walls are rounded like Maasai huts, and the cottages are kitted out with old steamer trunks, four-poster beds, fireplaces and even antique phones.
