Desert Rose is hosted by Emma Chen who gladly shares the thrills and pleasures of this wild and very remote part of Northern Kenya with you. The lodge is set at about 2000m on a cool side of Mt. Nyiru close to Lake Turkana. The mountain peak is about 3000m and the area supports an incredible range of flora and fauna with climatic change in altitude. Guests can enjoy fascinating hikes on Mt. Nyiru and possibly encounter wild boar, hunting dog, greater kudu, baboon and at night leopard, serval cat and aardvark. Accommodation is offered in five individually designed and furnished houses which are carved out of locally acquired rocks and timber and have flush toilets and open-air en-suite bathrooms, offering amazing views of the surrounding country side. The main dining room and library have been hand-crafted in locally quarried slate and finely finished in cedar and olive woods. Both overlook and subtly convey the peace and stillness of their surroundings. Category: Classic Camp
