Nkoteiya Eco Lodge

Nkoteiya Eco Lodge is located on a rocky outcrop set high above the Ewaso Nyiro River.  With amazing views in every direction, the lodge offers the perfect location to sit, unwind and relax.  Raptors circle the lodge on the thermal winds; hyena laugh in the distance and you can watch the elephant traipse down to the river below.

Nkoteiya has a large and comfortable mess area which can be used to simply sit and relax but is also perfect for small groups to meet and have a small conference or a corporate retreat whilst still having access to an excellent phone signal.
