The four luxury tented rooms are set on wooden platforms and raised off the ground, overlooking the waterhole from their private verandas.

On the northern slopes of Mt Kenya, this lodge is perfect for those looking to relax. You can simpy lie by the pool and watch as animals frequent the waterhole. Delicious food is served by resident Masai cooks, and hosts Willie and Sue Roberts make you feel like you’re part of the family.
The game viewing surpassed all our expectations, seeing the Big Five in the space of two hours was phenomenal. To top it all off, there was a herd of elephant refreshing themselves at the waterhole in front of the lodge, when we returned for breakfast.
After an exhilarating game drive to soak in a deep hot bath, that filled up in seconds, was luxurious and spoiling. But my game viewing wasn’t over as whilst soaking I could see zebra, impala and warthog grazing on the lawn next to my bathroom.
