Tassia Lodge, Lekurruki

The perfect secluded getaway, Tassia is a gem nestled along the ridge of a small escarpment with endless views of the Lengishu plains and Nesarge and Lossos hills in the distance. Created out of rock and wood, the six bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, offer stunning views with all modern comforts yet seem to blend seamlessly into the wilderness itself. The rooms can also be adapted for families, couples and single travellers. The side of the room facing the view is completely open, giving a clear view of the wilderness and wildlife below.

The large open lounge, bar and dining area is perched above the infinity edge pool that overlooks the elephant watering hole. With a wonderful team of chefs, housekkepers and waiters to ensure all your neds are catered for, Tassia is just magic.
