Health & Safety
Important security information: please read
In the interests of ensuring your safety whilst you are with us, please take note of the following points:
The lodge is located on a wildlife conservancy – which means that potentially dangerous wildlife has access to the grounds (which are gated but unfenced) at any time. Naturally, such visits are extremely rare BUT in times of dryness, buffaloes DO enter the grounds in search of water. Extremely dangerous and unpredictable, buffalo are exceptionally dangerous.
Never leave your room at night.
Always request an escort to the main lodge after night has fallen – simply specify the time you wish to be collected and one of our security guards will come to your room.
To obtain an escort please call the duty manager on
0733851000 or 0733385156.
Never wander beyond the boundaries of the lodge grounds.
Never get out of your vehicle while on the conservancy without a guide
Never allow your children to play unsupervised in the wilderness that surrounds the cottages and the lodge.
Remember that fires in this area are easily started – so be particularly careful when discarding cigarettes or matches.
A fire extinguisher is provided in your room.
In the case of fire please make your way to the main lodge and assemble in the car park area.
In the case of emergency, in the event that you have a cell phone – call: 0733851000 or 0733385156.
Whilst the lodge is sufficiently high to be outside the malarial areas – precautions against mosquitoes should still be taken.
A first aid kit is available at the lodge. In case of emergency call 0733851000 or 0733385156.
The Wildlife Code
- Respect the privacy of the wildlife, this is their habitat.
- Beware of the animals – they are wild and can be unpredictable.
- Don’t crowd the animals or make sudden noises or movements.
- Don’t feed the animals – it upsets their diet and leads to human dependence.
- Keep quiet – noise disturbs the wildlife and may antagonize your fellow visitors.
- Stay in your vehicle at all times, except at designated picnic or walking areas.
- Keep below the maximum speed limit (40 kph/25mph).
- Never drive off-road –this severely damages the habitat.
- When viewing wildlife keep to a minimum distance of 20m and pull to the side of the road so as to allow others to pass.
- Leave no litter and never light fires or discard burning objects.
- Respect the cultural heritage of Kenya – never take pictures of the local people or their habitat without asking their permission, respect the cultural traditions of Kenya and always dress with decorum.
