Accommodation is in 2 individual and traditional-styled buildings both offering spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms within an acacia forest filled with wildlife and birds. Twin beds can be put in on request

To comply with the eco-footprint, electricity is generated by solar power, waste recycled, water drawn using hydro power, hot water supplied by efficient 'kuni' boilers, cooking done with gas and eco-bricks from sustainable sources and food sourced from local farmers.

Malewa Wildlife Lodge is located in Gilgil, situated in the Kenya's Great Rift Valley, about 120 Kilometers from Nairobi along the Nairobi to Nakuru highway. The Lodge is set within a glorious yellow fever tree woodland along the Malewa river which attracts over 250 species of exotic birds.

The area is a beautiful double storey structure made up of a massive thatched roof covering games and relaxation areas on the upper deck and a lovely communal sitting area with fireplaces, dining room and bar on the ground level.

There are 5 individual traditional styled buildings with 6 bedrooms, one is a 2 storey family cottage with 2 rooms and 4 stunning river suites on stilts including one honeymoon suite with an outdoor bath, all offering spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms within an acacia forest filled with wildlife and birds.

The beautifully decorated double storey is framed by yellow fever trees and fronted by the Malewa river surrounded by several sitting areas. upstairs there is the reception and 'chill room' for children, downstairs there are 2 circular sitting areas with fire places, dining room and a bar.

We enjoyed our stay but were disappointed with the room allocation as we booked the river-front suites but got the ordinary ones. One of the meals we got served was also mediocre. All in all we had a great stay as the service was great and did a number of activities including the night game drive
