Chui Lodge is situated just above the shores of Lake Naivasha within the Great Rift Valley -one of the true Natural Wonders of the World-, set in the privately owned 20.000 acre Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary overlooking a waterhole with the dramatic Mau Escarpment as a back drop. The Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary plays host to a diverse number of mammalian & avian species including White Rhino, Leopard, Buffalo, Giraffe, Cheetah, Grevy Zebra, Oryx and a large number of plains game.
There are eight individual well-spaced luxurious cottages, each with an en-suite bathroom and delightful verandah. The dining room, lounge and bar area is simply unique and features pillars and murals with intricate African carvings, African antiques and ochre-coloured earth walls creating the feel of an artist's gallery.
Chui Lodge boasts a wealth of activities. Professional local guides will tailor the daily activities to guest's wishes and interests to include day & night game drives, guided bush walks, boat trips on the Lake filled with hippo's, horse riding or a visit to the Oserian Flower Farm, one of the largest growers and producers of 'cut flowers' in the world!
Indulge in the comfort of one of eight individual and well-spaced cottages, each uniquely designed with en-suite bathrooms, marble basin tops and delightful verandas. Original batik artworks done on site enhance the earthy colours of the ochre enriched walls, while magical bark cloth lampshades bathe African antiques and fascinating carvings on pillars in subtle light. Artistically decorated windows facing the transcendent beauty of unspoilt Kenya and magnificent four-poster olive wood king size beds ensure the essential touch of luxury to really unwind and soothe the senses.
Encounter 320 bird species and a wide array of wildlife including White Rhino, Buffalo, big and small cats, a large variety of antelope and the Grevy Zebra on your own private and exclusive game drive or game walks.
Along with game drives in our private sanctuary we are also able to offer sundowners (watching the sunset with a drink and fire whilst listening to the noises of the African dusk), truly the only way to end a hard day of game viewing! On the way back to the lodge our guides will take you for a night game drive, this gives a whole new perspective on the sanctuary and using our night lights, greatly improve your chances of seeing Leopard, Lion, Aardvark, Zorilla and Spotted Hyena.
Early morning bush breakfasts, bush walks, boat trips and fishing for Black Bass, Tilapia and Carp on Lake Naivasha are also activities our guests love to do.We are also in the most unique position to offer guests the opportunity to see a fully functioning rose farm including how the various rose varieties are produced and see the show room with over 100 different roses.If you are interested we can arrange horse riding, balloon safaris and even a visit to one of the local communities.

The Chui Lodge is a beautifully laid out camp in the Oserian wildlife sanctuary, built in a traditional African style but with all modern amenities. Guests stay in individual 'huts' in beautifully landscaped gardens. The staff are fantastic and helpful and the all inclusive food and drink is very, very good. Twice daily game drives are superb. Our guide was James, very knowledgeable and full of interesting tit bits. Chui is masai for leopard. There are 9 at the sanctuary. The bonfire and drinks at sundown was superb. No words can describe breakfast in the bush on the banks of the lake with giraffes and zebra grazing nearby! Throughly recommended.
A rustic but classy lodge

The ride is very scenic and the lodge is small but tastefully decorated. The food was exceptional and as one sits on the veranda, the animals pass by to have some salt from the salt lick. We saw antelopes, warthog, rhino, bushbucks, guinea fowls and many baboons. The staff were very welcoming and check in and checkout was efficient.
Great For A Weekend Escape
