Twiga Campsite & Lodge had your comfort in mind when designing and furnishing our 8 new luxury bungalows and 16 standard rooms with private balconies. Ranging from double to family-size, these rooms are equipped with fans, fridge and satellite television.

Mosquito nets cover comfortable beds and the large sliding windows are fitted with wire-mesh screens. All en suite bathrooms are provided with hot & cold water showers and bathroom/toilet floors are covered with elegant, non-slip tiles throughout.

Our 10 original rooms (roomy, airy, with thatched roofs of modern design and made from local materials) are also supplied with hot as well as cold water.

Twiga’s spacious, neatly-cropped and tree-shaded campsite has its own toilet/shower blocks as well as a special area for food preparation.


The Restaurant & Bar, with wide verandahs, offers a delectable choice of beverages as well as an excellent international cuisine, buffet, table d’hôte, barbecue and a pool-side snack bar. All meals and packed lunches are enlivened with fresh, tropical produce. The adjoining LOUNGE area offers comfortable seating, TV and wildlife video shows for your entertainment. Live traditional dancing is often arranged here.
