Fodor's Review

This lodge organically created out of local thatch, stone, and wood clings to a hillside on the northwest of the Laikipia Plateau. Overlooking the ever-flowing Ewaso N'giro River, the lodge offers spectacular views and great hospitality. In between activities, lie on your uniquely designed handcrafted big bed in your charming open-fronted room and gaze out at the river below. If you can't tear yourself away from the view, then just move into the bathroom, slip in the deep

stone bath, flip water over the edge to the rocks below and keep gazing. The comfortable main open-sided lodge ensures you're never far away from those memorable views. On chilly nights a roaring log fire keeps you cozy and warm. Food is plentiful, fresh, and delicious with superb breakfasts on the viewing deck. Spend a night out under the stars at a fly camp after a day's camel safari, go walking, birding, or fishing, or try tubing down the river. Game is plentiful, and you should see elephants, lions, leopards, giraffe, Grevy's and plains zebras, and much, much more. Because there are no fences, the game can wander at will.
