Osoita Lodge is located on the outskirts of Nairobi, a place called Ongata Rongai which is southwest of the main city. The staff are friendly and attentive and the setting could make you believe that you are nowhere near a huge, bustling city with all the trees and plants surrounding. A huge thatched roof, spacious hut, houses the main reception area. There is a candlelit dining room with many firepots for those cold winters. The lodge is built next to a seasonal river, which can make for a dreamlike experience, especially when eating overlooking the river. The name of the lodge is based on the Masaai word for Rocks ‘Soita’, this is as a consequence of the lodge being built in a rocky area. There are even bandas available for those people who are partial to a bit of outdoor cooking.
