Still a family home, this remote and rather beautiful lodge sits on a cliff overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River which continues to flow and draw game all year round.

Mount Kenya can be seen looming in the distance, and the lodge also enjoys views of the Karisa Hills and Mathews Mountains in the north.

This lovely lodge is not just a stunning place to enjoy the wilderness and relax but also a great way to witness a good example of working closely with the local community to help preserve cultural heritage and to improve their standards of living, education and health care. The community in this area are charming and you will be able to get to know them better during your stay here.

With just 6 spacious open-fronted cottages, this functional home has a really personal touch. Each of the cottages have been built with stone and thatch, keeping you cool and fitting in with the stunning settings. You can enjoy privacy on your own veranda and watch the world go by. Sabuk Lodge also has an exclusive cottage, Eagle Cottage, which has two en-suite rooms and is ideal for families and groups who desire a little more privacy. The unit has its own exclusive communal boma, plunge pool and a dedicated team of staff.

You have a variety of activity choices here which make the most of the landscape. Swimming in the river, fishing, and tubing the rapids are great ways to enjoy the Ewaso Nyiro River and if you want to explore on horseback that is also an option to get up close to plains game. Guides camel safaris are a speciality at Sabuk and excursions into the bush are a great, and surprisingly comfortable way to discover Laikipia Plateau.
