Desert Rose is the only luxury lodge situated in the far North of Kenya, overlooking the semi-arid wilderness. Desert Rose is eco friendly and culturally integrated with the Samburu people, a wonderfully charismatic tribe. The main lounge and pool area has been hand crafted to blend with the indigenous gardens, and landscaped to enhance the dramatic views one gets from the lodge.
All of the en-suite bathrooms are open air, and each cottage is designed around natural features. All food is home cooked and home produced. Activities here include camel safaris, wood workshops, fishing on Lake Turkana, staying overnight in a houseboat on Lake Turkana.
There are also journeys by road, either north to Lake Turkana for fishing and an adventure into this rugged part of the world or towards the Ndoto Mountains for some wild rock climbing.Show Less
