Smoking is not permitted within the lodge, due to the fact that it is of timber construction but a smoker's area is provided on the roof-top terrace.
Raised on stilts above the forest canopy, a timbered drawbridge leads from the forest up on to the wooden decks of the lodge. Inside, the impression of having boarded a ship is perpetuated by a combination of log panelled walls, timbered game-viewing decks and winding stairs leading to a selection of snugly comfortable, cabin-styled rooms. The charming eco lodge comprises a total of 41 rooms and facilities on offer to guests include a hotel safe and room and laundry services.
Each timber-built, cabin-styled room has its own luxury en suite bathroom and a private balcony overlooking the watering hole. The décor, which echoes the Kikuyu culture, features handwoven wall hangings, soft lighting and cosily-warm soft furnishings. Hot-water bottles are provided at night. Each room is equipped with a hairdryer and Internet access.
Activities include guided walks through the forest, trout fishing in the clear mountain streams and trips to the high moorland plains of the mountain.
