Nyaleti Lodge has three en-suite guest rooms with private patios. They are detached from the owner’s house and share a boma (outdoor fire area), lounge and pool area.

Nyaleti Villa (only 100 meters away) is a separate house with a gorgeous honeymoon suite and two additional en-suite rooms sharing the common areas of the house which include a pool, TV room, viewing deck, and boma.

Both properties are surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens featuring indigenous plants that attract many species of local birds. Some favorites are the entertaining hornbills, woodland kingfishers, the call of the go-away-bird, and the occasional owl.

Everyone has access to the elevated viewing platform which you won’t want to miss. This is a great place to watch the sunset, look for some of the resident animals, or do some great bird watching. There are bird books and binoculars available to borrow in reception.
