Lodges in the wild

Vacations & Travel - - Global Galleries -

The ac­com­mo­da­tion in these wild ar­eas is so much more than a place to sleep, with the ar­ray of op­tions from tents to five-star lodges quite over­whelm­ing. Mwiba Lodge in the south­ern Serengeti has just eight suites by the river, and you can en­joy de­li­cious gourmet meals ei­ther in the din­ing room or un­der the stars.

Even more part of the en­vi­ron­ment is Lois­aba Star Beds, with hand-made four-poster beds perched on raised wooden plat­forms en­sur­ing a night of won­der un­der the African sky. Lois­aba has stun­ning views over the val­ley and wa­ter­hole, with Sam­buru and Maa­sai war­riors wel­com­ing you and adding to the ex­pe­ri­ence.

Sam­buru war­riors will be your guides at the ex­cep­tional Saruni Sam­buru, which has six eco-chic vil­las with won­der­ful views over the Kalama Con­ser­vancy and Mount Kenya. The sa­fari ex­pe­ri­ence with the Sam­buru will al­low you to see the land­scape and the wildlife through their eyes. If this cul­tural in­ter­ac­tion in­trigues you, you can sign up for a spe­cial War­rior Acad­emy ex­pe­ri­ence, learn­ing to track, about folk­lore and the wis­dom needed to sur­vive here, as well as vis­it­ing a Ma­sai vil­lage.
