About Our Lodge

The Main Lodge’s 10 open-plan chalets all feature en-suite bathrooms, and guests can choose between double and family-size chalets. All chalets have their own patio and are conveniently situated near to the main complex. The thatched, central main complex consists of an indoor dining area, an informal lounge area with DStv, and a cosy covered bar area that opens up onto an intimate and rustic open-air boma. Guests have the option of eating outside at the fire or retreating into the indoor dining area.

There is an outdoor pool with a covered shelter next to it for those who love relaxing around the pool but don’t want to expose themselves to the sun’s rays for too long.
