Kenya and the Masai Mara, in particular, are known as the heart beat of the safari, the origins of which date back to the early 1920’s. Ngerende Island Lodge strives to capture the excitement, style and good living of those times but in contemporary style and in keeping with its environment.
The camp is ideally situated to take full advantage of the numerous wildlife for which the Masai Mara is famed so every game drive is an “event”.Resident around the camp are Buffalos, Black Rhinos, Hippos and Elephant. Combine this with a private chef serving international gourmet foods from the canvas kitchen, private butlers, dining under the stars with only the sounds of the night to disturb the peace. It is truly surreal. Ngerende in the Wild is an intriguing combination of the modern with the tradition of canvas but with a special emphasis on comfort.
