There’s been a new addition to the Lions Bluff family

For all those who may have visited us at Lions Bluff Lodge in the Lumo Community Wildlife Sanctuary,

we’d like to let you know that Lions Bluff now has a sister destination on the Indian Ocean Coast of Kenya.
As of October 1st, we will be managing Asha Cottages on Diani Beach,

which was last week voted the ‘Best Beach in Africa’ by the ‘Oscars’ of the travel industry: The 21st Annual Travel Awards.
As you may know, Asha Cottages is a small, intimate and exclusive beach lodge, lapped by the waters of the Indian Ocean.

As the newest addition to our Kenyan lodge family, however, it will henceforth be known as Diani Blue.
Featuring just six spacious Swahili-styled rooms (all with AC) clustered around a central pool,
Diani Blue stands in exquisite tropical gardens, which are home to our own troop of Colobus Monkeys.
It also offers a charming al fresco dining terrace, a spacious resident’s lounge, private bar, dedicated beach health spa
and a palm shaded beach brasserie – The Edge, which looks out over Africa’s most celebrated bay.

Guaranteeing a symmetry of style, warmth and philosophy, ‘The Bluff’ and ‘The Blue’ will offer
both a complementary and an alternative experience for our guests; and can be enjoyed as stand-alone destinations
or as part of a seamless ‘Beach and Bush’ experience.
The new duo will, however, guarantee the excellence of cuisine, uniqueness of accommodation, variety of experience,
Kenyan distinction and warmth of ambiance for which we are already known.
We are also pleased to announce that the addition of Diani Blue to our family will allow us
to extend the reach of our conservational and local community support even further.

Full details will shortly be available as to our new range of Beach and Bush packages.
But until then check us out below.

We have so many Elephant back in the sanctuary and a huge number of young.
If you are an Elephant lover then just come and stay in our Elephant paradise!
(Unfortunately Lumo didn't survive. Elephants are family animals and can literaly die of sadness)

On my way to work in the eye clinic from The Bluff I always admired this beautiful Commiphora Riperia on Taita Hills Salt Lick Sanctuary.
I had often thought that, as well as planting seedlings, we should try to rescue trees tipped over by elephant.
When I saw that my favourite tree had suffered exactly this fate I enlisted the ever-helpful Sarova Team and, together, we pulled the tree back up.
It remains to be seen whether the Commiphora will recover.
