The main house comprises a series of open plan spaces. The sitting room has been designed with comfortable contemporary furniture to suit many social configurations, whether you want to sit in the peaceful indoor area or the glassed in “goldfish bowl” overlooking the lake or work at the desk with high speed wi-fi. There is a fully stocked bar open at your convenience.
In the cool evenings, fires are lit to create a cozy atmosphere.
The kids play area offers a space for kids to draw, play games or do puzzles away from the sitting room.
The dining room features a stunning square table that seats twelve and has views of the lake. A dramatic stain glass screen separates the dining area from the kids play area.
Much of the day is spent enjoying the outdoors from the wrap-around deck furnished with a series of outdoor seating areas and a dining area. Sitting out here you feel that you are floating above the lake and you can watch the ever-changing scenes across the water and the islands at your leisure.
Your stay will be hosted by a professional safari guide or a member of the family to ensure that your every comfort and wish will be seen to.
We offer a varied range of activities at Ziwani Island and around the lake: from water sports on the Lake to golf at Great Rift Valley Lodge; from hiking Mt. Logonot to game viewing and rock climbing in Hell’s gate; from flamingo viewing at Lake Oloidien to visiting floriculture farms; from boat cruises around the lake bird and hippo watching to walking amongst the game on our own private game sanctuary. Your days can be as action packed or as relaxing as you want them to be.
Just sitting around the house and enjoying the views satiated by sumptuous gourmet meals may be all you want to do.
Our comfortable speed boat “Fish Eagle” can seat up to 12 people and we offer a range of water sports including water skiing, tubing and fishing. For birdwatching, you might want to take the locally made hardwood fishing boat which is quieter and can navigate the shallower waters. Early morning or evening cruises in the speed boat offer a chance to view the beautiful scenery and wildlife around the lake.
Walks to the top of the hill provide splendid views of the lake and the surrounding dramatic hilly countryside. Sundowners on the hill are a lovely experience at the end of the day.
