This is a luxurious lodge owned by a European couple who were both born and raised in Kenya. Offering comfort and adventure is their specialty. It might be hard to identify this lodge because it is hidden in the forested kopjes of Lake Mburo National Park in a manner not to hurt the natural biodiversity. Accommodation is currently offered in twelve (12) luxury tented rooms with no two similar rooms. They are all privately situated in different locations. The only difference would be that they all offer gorgeous views of the park but even these views are private and dissimilar. Some visitors get to see the kobs and impalas while others have views of the buffalo and antelope salt licks; this was done intentionally. All rooms feature an architectural style with a deep reflection on the true African wilderness. The rooms are powered by solar energy which also runs the water heaters permitting tourists to enjoy showers of their desired temperatures. The lodge also intends to open up a bush camp very soon. Delicious foods are prepared at the lodge with many of the ingredients being sourced from its own garden. The lodge adds to Lake Mburo’s uniqueness with its horseback safaris and child bush activities, not forgetting their activity called “out of the ordinary”. Breakfast is brought to each individual room so that tourists can catch views of the park’s animals early as they enjoy a cup excellently brewed coffee or tea in the comfort of their balcony.
