Shompole Eco Lodge

Shompole eco lodge is located in Southern Kenya on the Tanzania border near Lake Natron, overlooking the Great Rift Valley. Much of the incredible landscape was shaped by volcanic movement. The lodge, situated on a private conservancy, is surrounded by 140,000 acres of Shompole Group Ranch, including a diverse area for wildlife and a buffer zone for human settlement. The lodge was constructed to enhance the natural beauty of the area with flowing water, smooth white walls, and mostly open air.

Each room consists of a cool-pool, informal sitting area, a bathroom, vast windows offering views of the volcanic mountains, and a high canopied roof. The rooms are designed to be open in order to take advantage of the breeze. The main lounge and dining area have a high thatch roof and overlook the Great Rift Valley. Guests can also enjoy their meals in the privacy of their rooms, at the main pool, or in the bush. If you wish to celebrate a special occasion the staff at Shompole can organize a candle lit dinner under the stars, which is sure to be a truly unforgettable experience.
