Built on stilts around prime grazing ground, the Salt Lick Lodge is one tasty proposition. Located in over 9000 square miles of protected terrain covering Western Kenya the Lodge offers you the chance to view a menagerie of wildlife within a living ecosystem. The lodge has many terraces where you can watch animals come and drink at the nearby waterholes. There are also underground passages leading to camouflaged bunkers so you can observe exotic species as they can exist without humans. Salt Lick is part of a larger animal sanctuary that offers a protective refuge for larger species such as Giraffes, Elephants and Buffalo. At night you can go on ‘game drives’ to observe some of the lager residents and great care is taken not to disturb the animals. The restaurant and bar is the highest point among the lodge’s unique 96 room complex. From there, you will have panoramic views of the ancient birthplace of life on Earth.
