In this blog post I share with you an overview of Jumbo Hill Top Lodge, a budget hotel that borders Shimba Hills National Reserve in Kwale County. This overview will include, the general areas, pool and rooms.
The lodge offers free onsite parking for guests. The parking lot has a lot of room to accommodate the lodge’s visitors. Jumbo Hill Top Lodge also allows pets, which is ideal for any pet owner. The lodge is also ideal for large groups, families and people looking for long stays.
On site the lodge offers activities such as table tennis, darts, cycling and the staff can organize game drives and hiking expeditions to Shimba Hills National Reserve. Another onsite service offered by the lodge is free WIFI access. However, at the time of my visit, I could not access wifi from my room and hence went to sit at the lounge.
The lodge gives a buffet menu to its guests with a wide selection of Kenyan foods. If you are traveling as a group, the staff ensure that they have prepared a menu that you as a group can request for before arriving.
The kitchen also gives room service and groceries deliver for long stay clients. There is an outdoor pool that is service all year round. Airport transfer and shuttle services are available upon request and the service comes t an extra cost.
Next to the pool is a children’s play ground a good place for children to play if you are in Kwale for a day trip and generally an ideal location for people traveling with their children.
There are three types of accommodation options offered by Jumbo Hill Top Lodge, double room, triple room and twin rooms all with marble flooring. This is the first hotel I spent the night at the coast with blankets in the room owing to the fact that it borders Shimba Hills Forest.
