GUIDE ON MALEWA WILDLIFE LODGE IN KENYA
From afar, the Malewa Wildlife Lodge seems like a little African village with earthen bandas in roundish shapes with thatched roofs erected amidst a lush yellow fever forest on the banks of the Malewa River. As you get closer, you will be amazed by the care that has been taken to create this environmental conscious rustic lodge that includes all the mid-range amenities and facilities for guests on their safari vacation in East Africa. At the same time, only locally available materials have been used such as sun-dried clay bricks, earth, rocks and grass. Cement has been used sparingly, and the wood used to make the furniture was sourced from fallen dead wood trees. The lodge is located in the 3500 acres of Kigio Wildlife Conservancy, and is sandwiched between Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru National Park near Gilgil town. They take their eco-friendly efforts further by using gas to cook your meals and recyclable bricks for the kitchen. The ingredients needed for your meals are brought in by local farmers near the lodge and transformed into tasty meals served in the lodge’s dining area. The main building is a two-floor structure that has a common lounge warmed by a fire with the dining area and bar on the lower floor. The upper floor has more room for relaxing on lazy afternoons. It is also equipped with indoor games for AfricanMecca families travelling in Kenya with kids. The rooms offered by the Malewa Lodge have either twin beds or double beds with warm coverings. Solar panels generate electricity and low-power bulbs are used to light the rooms. You can also charge your electronics in your room. Every room has a safe for your storing valuables and water for your showers is heated with eco-friendly kuni boilers.
Guests’ bush- touring Lake Naivasha can stay in one of their 5 cottages built on raised stilts, which carry 6 rooms in all. One of these is a complete family cottage with two floors and two rooms. The other four are single-story, and one of them has been adapted as a special honeymoon suite complete with a bath setup on a secluded patio. You could also choose one of the 4 River Suites that are built on the riverfront to accord you beautiful vistas and the opportunity to view more than 250 bird species that are often seen around. The river suites have their own patios and one of them is also perfect for a romantic, honeymooning couple or anniversary celebrators. The location and ambience of Malewa Wildlife Lodge are such that your outdoor breakfasts and lunches also seem like a fun-filled unique experience of your African trip. They organize barbecues for lunch served on the riverbank with the tranquility of the bush land all around you and birds singing in the trees. The community owners at Kigio Wildlife Conservancy prefer low-impact activities with minimal vehicle use to maintain their delicate eco-system. The two main activities are walks and bicycle rides. You could bike in the afternoon where you may view giraffes, Cape buffalos, zebras, dik diks, warthogs, waterbucks, impalas and duikers. Expert bush guides accompany you on your morning walks in the bush and talk to you about the myriad flora, avian and terrestrial animals in its wilderness. AfricanMecca Safaris can also organize day and nighttime game drives for you; however, the accommodation charges extra for any vehicle based activity. You may also safari out to Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru from the lodge, but you require two nights stay at the very minimum to maximize the experiences at Kigio and the lakes. Choose the Malewa Wildlife Lodge for a serene holiday In Kenya in a lodge like no other.
