The lodge takes its name from the Aruba Dam, an oasis of limpid brown water that forms an irresistible attraction to both man and beast in this otherwise dry dusty Tsavo East National Park. The new Aruba Lodge sits on a vantageous watering site overlooking the Aruba dam constructed on Voi river in 1952.
The lodge, set amongst landscaped gardens, offers a swimming pool and children’s pool, a fine restaurant, a bar, a cultural center, a souvenir shop and of course, wonderful viewing platforms. For the traveler there is also a fuel station.
The park is easily accessible by air and road and it is situated 326 kilometers from Nairobi and 160 kilometers from Mombasa. The nearest airstrip is just five minutes away.
