We welcome you to discover the unique wildlife and cultural experience we have to offer. You will get a real taste of African wilderness, experience our local culture and directly support our community.

The lodge was built by using local materials. All the bandas offer an amazing view on the vast landscape. You can relax at the pool overlooking the area or watch wildlife drinking at a popular water spring.

Our community consists of 700 households with a population of 8000 people. We have built the solar-powered lodge to sustain our community. Besides this we are one of the few community projects in Kenya supporting a Rhino Sanctuary. Apart from the lodge and protecting the Rhino we also run other projects like women enterprises, health, education, water and infrastructure.
