Chui Lodge
is located in the Lake Naivasha area of Southwest Kenya.

During the Colonial Era, the picturesque Lake Naivasha was used as the main airport for the country, an essential stop on the flying boat mail service which connected London with Cape Town. Soon the aristocratic settlers were building fabulous mansions around the shoreline, becoming the infamous 'Happy Valley Set', renowned for their debauched lifestyle which has since been immortalised by Hollywood.

Situated inside the 70 square kilometre Oserian Ranch to the southeast of Lake Naivasha, this lodge enjoys an unusual level of isolation in this otherwise busy area. The design is funky rustic, especially in the public areas, which lead out to a swimming pool with views out over a waterhole. Guest accommodation is in just 8 rather pleasant detached cottages.

Activities include gentle vehicle safari and walking safari on the ranch. Lake Nakuru can be accessed on a really decent day trip, there being a dirt road shortcut through attractive farmlands direct to the quiet southern gate, meaning the that guests can enjoy the spectacular scenery and a lavish picnic lunch whilst avoiding the worst of the safari traffic and the busy main road. Other trips further afield include some great hiking, notably up to the mysterious hidden crater of Mount Longonot, as well as tours of local villages and the industrial flower farms.

The main potential downsides are that the lodge is far removed from the lake itself and, more importantly, that this area has recently become heavily urbanised in parts and the southern side of the lake is now dominated by huge commercial flower farms, geo-thermal power plants and a rash of lower quality lodges, although these elements are largely avoided when staying here.
