Lodge Overview

Escarpment Luxury Lodge boast 16 excellently appointed and private chalets. Each chalet has its own private deck from which you can view the lake below you and watch wildlife as it drifts through the lodge grounds. Abundant bird life fills the trees and bushes which grow right up to your deck - affording you the sense of being immediate with the natural bush of Africa whilst luxuriating in your private chalet.

Wooden floors and wide windows and doors add to the natural feel of the lodge and every effort has been made to ensure comfort and luxury: large beds with sumptuous linen, leather sofas in your own small lounge area, handmade and recycled finishes in keeping with our intention to encourage an eco-friendly environment and a large, deep bath from which you can survey the bush and the lake.

Accommodations

Wake in the mornings to the gentle sound of a wooden cow-bell, straight from the neck of a Masaai cow, take your tea or indeed any meal on your deck and enjoy sundowners as you watch the sun set and the gorges and hills surrounding the area grow dark against the sunset. Artifacts used in Masaai culture complete the look of your chalet where you are afforded the luxury of chandeliers and soft linens and leather sofas as well as the ethnicity of local goods. Each chalet boasts both an inside and outside shower - imagine the glory of taking a shower under African stars as you listen to the night sounds of the bush around you - or early morning outdoor showers to the rising sun and the sound of birds waking.

The lodge invites the incredible beauty of the African bush in - expanses of windows and doors mean that you have nature right around you as you sit in the comfort and luxury of the superbly appointed bar lounge. A spreading deck surrounding the main lodge affords you breathtaking views of the lake and the gorge upon which the lodge perches - watch pelican sweep the skies as you take sundowners, see the sun slip like a segment of orange into the hills and listen to the sounds of Africa nestle up to you as night slides in. Luxuriate in leather sofas and read or play backgammon or chess on handmade leather boards in the evenings after dinner, watch the lake wake up from the deck as you take your breakfast and appreciate the coolth and calm of high ceilings and beautiful d├ęcor designed to make you feel both at home and in a princely place.
