Kenya's first and only proper glamping experience. Sleep in beautifully furnished, en-suite bell tents - all with unique, special touches and big views over Borana conservancy and Mt Kenya. Relax in your own beautiful wooden cabin and private gardens, with your own chef and waiter, delicious meals and drinks. We are 100% eco and solar. Rates are for resident adults PPPN on full-board (see Sieku Moja for self-catering). Please enquire for lower rates for only hiring the chef and not full board.

The space
We offer something truly unique in Kenya. Off-grid accommodation is in bespoke, luxuriously kitted-out bell tents, which are imported from the UK, and offer guests a unique and high-quality stay at a good price. The bell tents are made out of waterproof and breathable cotton, with a fully waterproof (and insect-proof!) flooring. The sidewalls of the bell tents can be unzipped and rolled up on hot, lazy days (see photos). One other beautifully equipped double bed room is also inside the main mess tent, and can be secluded from the rest of the tent if you need it. Our attention to detail, small and well-though-through touches and extra little things that make your stay with us as comfy as possible are all important to us. That's why we provide double beds with feather pillows and duvets, cotton sheets; bespoke and new furniture from good local craftsmen; beautiful rugs and mats; specially designed cushions; from organic soaps; fresh flowers etc etc while still giving you a true bush camping experience. The large mess tent is beautifully made and provides you with all the creature comforts and amenities you will ever need - including large sitting room; fully-equipped kitchen with oven and bespoke butchers block; dining room with log fires. Our open air shower and loos-with-very-fine-views enhance the bush camping experience, and the picnic tables, chilling areas, fire pits, barbecue areas and pentanque (french boules) court allow you relax, switch off and enjoy! Oh, and there's a lady that will do all your washing and cleaning etc and a night guard (in case you need him). Firewood, candles and all other small things are included in the costs - no hidden charges!

Where you’ll be

Laikipia County, Kenya

We are in south east Laikipia in Kenya. We overlook a stunning, private conservancy that has the Big 5, and other incredible views and mountains ranges. Our panoramic views also include Mount Kenya which is nearby. We are next to the Ngare Ndare forest - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - which is full of elephants and natural swimming pools, waterfalls and good walking. We are not too far from Samburu park for day trips. We are the perfect spot for the 10to4 mountain bike race and very close to the Lewa Marathon.
