The lodge is situated on the banks of the Athi River , at the edge of Tsavo East National Park. It looks out onto the Yatta Plateau and on a clear day Mt. Kilimanjaro can be seen to the South. The lodge is surrounded by a beautiful and well-tendered garden that contrasts with the arid countryside, so typical of Tsavo. As one would expect, we take pride in providing first class cuisine. Most of the fresh vegetables are grown on a farm nearby and therefore are obtained daily. All our bread, cakes and pastas are home-made. We can vary menus from the traditional to the exotic and can accommodate most diet preferences.

Accommodation consists of 6 luxury cottages. Each cottage has its own individual character, en-suite tiled bathroom locally hand-made, four-poster beds, stylish hand-dyed bedspreads and thick woolen carpets, shingle roofs, private verandah, and built so as to make maximum use of the cool breeze that blows up and down the river during the different seasons. The cottages are located along the river giving each room its own view and sandy beach. One of the cottages is much larger with its own Jacuzzi/plunge pool. The main house consists of a large open circular building that includes a dining room with a large table that sits 12 guests and a lounge cum bar area that overlooks both the river and the beautifully landscaped swimming pool.

Being on the edge of the untouched remote and vast Tsavo East National Park , wildlife is slowly moving into the vicinity of the lodge. Daily sightings include Elephant, Buffalo , Hippo, Lesser Kudu, Zebra, Crocodile, Impala & Waterbuck. Leopards are regularly seen around the lodge and occasionally Lion & Cheetah visit the conservancy area.
Regular sightings of the endangered African Wild Dog are seen on the Yatta Plateau & along the Tiva River inside Tsavo East National Park.

A host of small mammals come into the lodge grounds everyday, including Porcupines, Banded Mongoose, White-Tailed Mongoose, Genet Cats & Bush Babies.

Birdlife is prolific with over 380spps occurring in and around the conservation area.
