Supporting local community
Desert Rose has been in close cooperation with Samburu community from its beginnings. Most of our employees come from the nearest village, Waso Rongai, located at the bottom of the sacred muntain - Oldonyo Nyiru.
The lodge has been supporting community through many developmnet inititives. We have already built a vital medical clinic and piped the local primary school with water.
Last year, thanks to the generosity of our guests and friends from Poland be bought over 400 solar lanterns for the Waso Rongai people. Gregory - the co-owner of the lodge distributed the lamps to all the residents.
The village which had never had electricity before, lit up for the first time!
