Lengishu features six beautifully appointed bedrooms within four cottages, which are situated apart from the main house. All rooms face East over the valley below, offering spectacular sunrise views.

Fish Eagle and Goshawk are standalone double rooms, perfect for couples. The Upper and Lower Cottages work well for guests traveling with young children or couples on safari together, with the bedrooms leading off a shared sitting room that is found at the center of the cottage.

All bedrooms are spacious with fireplaces or wood-burning stoves for the cooler evenings and have en-suite bathrooms with rain showers and freestanding copper bathtubs. Floor to ceiling windows provide majestic views of the undulating plains beyond, perfect for bathtub game viewing

Lengishu is built with locally sourced materials and designed to blend in with the surrounding environment. Expertly crafted by local artisans, the house features beautiful exposed Kenyan timber work while stone for the floors and intricate design features were excavated from the site itself.

The interiors are tastefully decorated in neutral tones with splashes of red in a nod to the owner’s Scottish heritage and that of their neighbors; the Maasai community.

The main house is central to the design with a large entrance hall leading to a study and dining room with two inviting fireplaces and an impressive vaulted ceiling. A covered veranda with a pizza oven is a delightful hub for al fresco breakfasts or sundowners under an African sky.
