Above Lake Naivasha set in the heart of a private 18,000-acre wildlife sanctuary and nestled in an indigenous forest overlooking the Mau escarpment lies Chui Lodge, Naivasha’s best-kept secret.
Chui Lodge is magnificence at its peak in Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary overlooking the dramatic backdrop of the Rift Valley and the Mau escarpment.
Chui Lodge is easily accessible from Nairobi by road in about 1 and half hours along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway. The Lodge also has its own airstrip nearby and charter flights from Nairobi take around 20 minutes.
Chui Lodge was designed and created by June Zwager; her vision was brought to life with help from the local community and her team of skilled craftsmen. The Lodge is built from simple bush stone, Acacia, Olive and Leleshwa wood all sustainably sourced from within the sanctuary. All furniture has been hand crafted at our onsite wood workshop and every piece is unique and adds to the African flare of Chui Lodge.
