‘I believe in God, only I spell it Nature’ - Frank Lloyd Wright
The whole philosophy of Desert Rose is GREEN. It uses only the natural sources of energy, from a gravity fed water system to solar water heating and power. It’s made of organic materials, stone and cedar. Not a single tree has been cut for its construction. It’s the only lodge in Kenya where all the design elements, from furniture and fireplaces to baths and toilet paper holders are hand-made.
The closest supermarket is 2 hours’ flight from the lodge. There is no network. Phone calls can only be made on a satellite phone. The remote location and closeness to nature creates a unique atmosphere of spirituality….and attracts not only people but also wild animals, like the friendly leopard which lives nearby and can be heard from a distance in the early morning and at dusk…
The close attention to detail and isolated serenity makes Desert Rose absolutely unique compared to other tourist spots. Desert Rose does not dominate over nature, it’s an integral part of it.
