Description

Exclusive private wildlife retreat nestled between Lake Naivasha and Lake Oloidien offering an abundance of wildlife and birdlife. The property consists of two historic private houses and a 120 ft tower giving panoramic views over the lake and surrounding savannah.

The manor house is mock Tudor and has been carefully refurbished to a high standard in classic British country house style. It is set in carefully manicured gardens. There are 4 double rooms and 1 single, with areas idea for children. The property can be rented out exclusively or by the room. All rooms are ensuite, there is a swimming pool, dining room, lounge and spa.
