The village walk starts from the Lodge gates towards the village of Kibuweni - this is about a 20 to 30 minute walk. During the walk you will be introduced to the surrounding area by stopping at the main bore hole where villagers get their daily water supplies, a sunflower plantation and a dried river bed. This is home to many different types of animals and plants - many of these plants are used in local medication. You will pass a local farm that has livestock with which you can interact with whilst on the walk.
The Nature trail starts at the north end of the Lodge through a dense forest. It is a great opportunity to learn about the plants, birds, small mammals and herbal medication with our resident Naturalist and Massai Warrior.
The Swahili phrase ‘HAKUNA MATATA’ meaning (No Troubles) was made famous by the Lion King Disney movie. Learn basic Swahili words with our resident teacher, who will give you a one on one lesson every evening at the poolside.

On a clear night standing under the sky is like having a blanket of stars surround you. These are the same stars that guide the Massai Nomads to greener areas for their livestock. However the best viewing of the constellation can be seen from the pool deck. Grab a night cap and join us outside under the African sky.
