Years ago this was the locale around which such famous writers as Ernest Hemingway and Robert Ruark spun their stories of big-game hunting in the wilds of Africa. This too, is part of Maasai land, and it’s not unusual to see the proud Maasai warrior or small children tending their cattle as you traverse their territory. In this land, animal and man have learned to coexist and thrive together, despite the harsh conditions.

With Kilimanjaro 19,340 foot snow-capped summit presiding over the landscape, the setting is unrivaled. All around the lodge roams the wildlife that has made East Africa legendary – lion, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, baboon, gazelle, and wildebeest. The lodge is influenced by native Maasai architecture, and is in perfect harmony with its environment. Beautifully-landscaped gardens, unique guest services and exceptional amenities enhance the distinctive ambiance. The uniquely constructed Ivory Class guest rooms feature en-suite bathrooms, that are individually appointed with authentic Africana murals painted by a renowned local artist and convey a distinctive Maasai Manyatta mood. The rooms are grouped in the manner of a Maasai village, each room enjoys a view of either majestic Mount Kilimanjaro or the expansive Amboseli plains which are home to herds of elephant that feed on the large, feathery acacia trees. Overlooking the saltlick and floodlit waterhole, the open air dining room serves guests sumptuous international menus, buffets and barbecues alongside authentic African dishes. A full service bar and refreshing outdoor pool are some of the other luxuries one is expected to find at this lodge. (B, L, D)
