Situated on 50 acres along the Ngobit River, Laikipia District, adjacent to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the Lodge was originally built in the early 1960’s as a Club and has now been carefully restored maintaining its original character.
The landscape is a combination of dry forest and relics of riverine forest trees with views of Mt. Kenya and the Aberdares. Paths have been cleared along the riverbank for walking and bird watching. There are two resident groups of colobus monkeys.
We have started to restore the tree cover which was depleted over the last 25 years when much of the land was leased out for small scale vegetable farming. A grevillea woodlot has been planted for a sustainable supply of wood for our use and we have also planted several hundred indigenous trees specifically including species known to be food plants contributing to the natural diet of colobus, birds, bees and butterflies.
