This is an Exclusive, Luxurious and Outstanding lodge with ten cottages six doubles and four twins, three of them with outdoor showers. Located at the shows of Lake Elementaita, each cottage has a large balcony and More a spectacular view of the lake. Overlooking Soysambu Conservancy. The sunset view from the lodge is a site to behold. Less
