The LUMO Wildlife Sanctuary is a private game reserve. It is located near Mwatate in Taita-Taveta county in the former coastal province, about 220 km from Mombasa. It covers an area of 125,000 hectares. The reserve is formed by the Lualenyi, Mramba Communal pasture area and the Oza Group Ranch, hence the acronym "LUMO".
LUMO is adjacent to the Tsavo West National Park and the Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary and serves as an important wildlife corridor between Tsavo West and Tsavo East. It houses Cape Buffalo, Elephant, Leopard, Masai Lion, Masai Giraffe, Zebra, Hartebeast, Impala, Waterbuck, Thomson's Gazelle, less Kudu, Dik-Dik and other smaller animals, including a great variety of bird life.
The Lions Bluff Safari Camp is located in the Lumo Nature Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is to the right of Tsavo West National Park and to the left is the Hilton Game Sanctuary, with the famous but overcrowded Saltlick Lodge.
On top of the Mwashoti Mountain, the Lions Bluff Safari Camp offers guests a panoramic view of the expanses of the park and the Pare Mountains, the Usambara Mountains, Taita Hills and, on clear days, Kilimanjaro.
The camp has 12 bandas, adventurously built in the mountain. Each banda has its own bathroom and a small terrace where you could spend the whole day, because the view is just terrific. All tents are rustic and nicely decorated.
Furthermore, the camp has a sunset terrace, a campfire terrace and a very spacious restaurant open on all sides.
