Nestled at an elevation of 5,500 feet (1676 metres) above sea level, Desert Rose stands as a one-of-a-kind eco-friendly lodge. Situated on the lush cedar forest slopes of Mount Nyiru, this remarkable lodge overlooks the Elbarta plains, gracefully positioned between the Karisia Mountains and Lake Turkana in North Kenya. 
This intimate retreat features five hand-crafted thatched houses and two luxurious tents, all designed for ultimate comfort and privacy. Each accommodates up to sixteen guests with plush olive wood beds. The houses, nestled amidst natural features, boast private en-suite bathrooms – some open-air for starlit soaks – and charming patios. Electricity is available for essential needs, with a central charging area to minimise environmental impact. The main lounge and pool area seamlessly blend with indigenous gardens, maximising the breathtaking panoramic views. Here, guests unwind in a fully stocked bar, a cozy sitting room warmed by a crackling fireplace, or by the bonfire pit under a canopy of stars. The infinity pool, dining room, lounge, and deck all share the awe-inspiring vista, making every moment unforgettable.
 Desert Rose offers a truly exceptional experience, enveloping guests in a serene and surreal ambiance amid the untamed wilderness, making it a destination unlike any other.

Highlights

  • Desert Rose embraces eco-luxury, harnessing nature's power through solar energy and gravity-fed water systems.
  • Desert Rose celebrates seclusion, offering a unique connection to the wilderness.
  • Notably, a friendly leopard has made its home nearby, adding to the lodge's allure. The captivating calls of this magnificent creature can be heard from a distance during the early mornings and at dusk. 
  • While the lodge is devoid of network coverage, there is a designated spot fondly known as the "Safaricom rock," where one may find some network connection, weather permitting. This unique feature has earned the spot its name.
