Fodor's Review

This lodge sits plumb in the middle of game-rich Laikipia, on a 300-meter (984-foot) plateau that looks south to Mt. Kenya with stunning views across the Laikipia plains. Built of cedar, stone, and wood, this lovely lodge is nestled among gardens of aloes, succulents, and flowering trees. From the veranda of your en-suite room, gaze out at the dizzying views or just watch the water hole below with its passing show of animals. If you fancy something even more special, opt for one of the star beds (closed in November), which have been created with the local community. Don't expect a meager stretcher under the stars. You'll stay in an en-suite "platform" with half-covered thatch roof, handcrafted furniture, and wooden floors set among big rocks. The Kiboko star beds overlook a water hole, whereas the Koija star beds overlook the Ewaso Nyiro river. Every evening your friendly and attentive Laikipia Masai attendants will wheel out your double bed under the star-studded clear night sky, where, carefully shrouded under a mosquito net, you can watch the world turn. If you're looking for something even more different, go for a quad bike ride.
