Perched on the rim of an extinct volcano above Lake Nyinambuga, this family-run lodge was built by a British tea farmer and has the wonderful atmosphere of an English country home. The setting is amazing, facing the Mountains of the Moon, and the eight simple cottages feature four-poster beds with mosquito netting and en suite facilities with hot running water and flush toilets. Candlelight and oil lamps provide a romantic “Old Africa” feel, as there is no electricity in the lodge, and no noisy generators to disturb the setting. The cottages and main lodge have solar lights. The dining room opens onto Lake Nyinambuga, and meals are served family style.
