A remarkable new safari lodge balanced on the rim of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, where the sky melts into the endless plains in a vista so wide it takes your breath away. Where the romance of canvas combines with dramatic guest areas, this is a fresh approach to safari lodge design.
This beautiful piece of land overlooks what many safari travellers deem the loveliest game reserve on the continent, Kenya’s Maasai Mara. Sitting snugly across three kopje’s of the escarpment, the third kopje is perhaps most well-known as the site of many of the most memorable scenes from the film Out of Africa.
Guests are accommodated in spacious Tented Suites, which have been designed for guests’ comfort and are reminiscent of a classical African safari, each with a view more lovely than the last. Every detail has been considered: end-to-end glass frontage, sweeping canvas, decks overhanging the Mara, and inside – polished parquet floors and just the right amount of furniture.
The lodge consists of two totally separate and intimate camps, each with a guest area sitting atop one of the kopje’s. Inspired by the old-world atmosphere of Nairobi’s famous Muthaiga Club, guests can dine, read, relax, and enjoy a drink in a place where indoors and outdoors merge into one. The architecture is filled with drama, the red brickwork inspired by local Maasai techniques.
Simply put: perfectly cooked and presented dishes using the best, fresh local ingredients. Food that is always delicious, unfussy but oh-so-good to look at; generous and joyful; sometimes surprising; honest and true to who we are; and lastly, food that celebrates Kenya’s finest produce – beef, vegetables, fruits, coffee and tea, amongst others.
