Ewuaso River Lodge

Ewuaso River Lodge is an intimate and private safari lodge with abundant wildlife set in a remarkable, remote, and little-visited corner of Kenya, Shompole Conservancy, situated in the beautiful and unspoiled heart of Maasai land, and is tucked away by the serene Ewuaso Ngiro River at the bottom of the Great Rift Valley and adjacent to the Rangers Airstrip. The Ewaso Ngiro (‘brown river’), is the main source of water for the region, which flows from Kenya’s Mau escarpment into Tanzania’s Lake Natron.
The flight to the airstrip is approximately 25 minutes from Nairobi and 35 minutes from Maasai Mara. If you choose to come by road, it is roughly a 160 km, 3.5-hour drive from Nairobi, most on a good tarmac road with the last 30 km on rough dirt roads. It is known as one of the most scenic drives in Kenya.
Ewuaso River Lodge features five luxurious en-suite cottages, each equipped with a king-size bed, a modern bathroom, a flush toilet, and a spacious balcony with breathtaking views. These amenities ensure guests enjoy comfort and luxury in the heart of nature. The lodge offers various facilities to enhance its guests’ stay, including a swimming pool, a restaurant, and a conference room. Additionally, there is a bird hide currently under construction. Room amenities include a coffee maker, mini fridge, safe, private veranda, solar power, and high-speed Wi-Fi. Ewuaso River Lodge provides numerous activities for guests to enjoy, such as scenic flights over Lake Magadi and Lake Natron, baboon walks, boma visits, tubing, fishing, and game drives. These activities offer a blend of tranquility and adventure, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the natural surroundings.

Ewuaso River Lodge

Wildlife is abundant in this relatively unknown corner of Kenya, with only Rhino missing from the diverse ecosystem. Animal numbers are increasing all the time – there are around forty lions, a resident cheetah mother with her four cubs, and a leopard too. Elephants are back in the area after many years of absence, and can often be seen early in the morning making their way down to the river to drink.

Large herds of buffalo have been seen and there is a greater density of giraffes than almost anywhere in the region, along with abundant plains game such as zebra, wildebeest, impala and eland, and desert antelope such as gerenuk and oryx. The nocturnal wildlife viewing is good – with many small carnivores to be seen including bat-eared foxes, African wild cats, genet cats, and even the shy caracal making an occasional appearance.

Research has shown over four hundred species of birds in the ecosystem, making this a must-visit location for bird lovers. Nearby soda lakes Natron and Magadi are rich in trona, attracting both the beautiful lesser and greater flamingos.

As well as game drives around the conservancy (self-drive with guide), all set against the backdrop of the magnificent Mount Shompole and the spectacular Great Rift Valley wall, other interesting things to do by vehicle are to visit the Shompole swamps, Lakes Magadi and Natron, nearby waterfalls and to do some tracking (both on foot and by vehicle).

Other recommended activities include :-

Tubing & Kayaking – the Ewaso Ngiro River is free of dangerous predators such as hippos and crocodiles – making it safe for swimming and kayaking – and floating down the river in an inner tube is a unique way to travel when the river is medium to low in level. You pass by huge fig tree roots going into the water, watched by while baboons and monkeys and the occasional monitor lizard.

Walking with Baboons – the nearby Lale’enok Resource Centre, a short drive up-river from the camp, is the base for the Walking with Baboons programme.  Arriving first thing in the morning before the baboons leave their sleeping site, guests are accompanied by Sisco or Joel, the local Maasai baboon experts, and walk with the baboons and learn how they live and interact with each other

Walking with Cattle – travel across the plains with the local Maasai herders as they make their way back home with their cows after a long day’s grazing. Guests come closer to wildlife than usual amidst the cattle and can try to learn the whistles and chants the Maasai use to communicate with their precious cows.

Cultural Visits – with few outside influences the life of the Maasai here remains relatively traditional and unchanging. Guests can visit a Maasai Engang (settlement) and discover more about their customs and way of life.
