‘Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference’ – Robert Frost

The stunning landscape and interesting vegetation provides great inspiration on a variety of our abundant walks. Game in the area is shy and scattered. It is a home for genets, bushbucks, warthogs, ostriches, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, vervet monkeys, zebras, gerenuks…and soon also elephants which in the past used to live in the cedar forest of Oldonyo Nyiru and now start to migrate back to our area…

Baboons and leopards are often heard close-by in the granite rock cliffs and the fig trees that abound with bird life. In very close proximity to the lodge we have an exciting natural rock slide and a perfect picnic site, a fun spot to spend the midday hours. There are a multitude of walks one can take from the lodge in the dry rugged country on the valley floor or high in the Cedar and Podo forest.
