Laikipia Conservancy Areas, Kenya
Tailored to the discerning traveller, this lodge provides an exclusive hideaway in the vast Ol Ari Nyiro Conservancy. Immersing you in wild Africa while also offering exquisite accommodation, it’s an ideal retreat for celebrating romance, or as a private getaway for friends and family.
There’s something reassuringly expensive about Mukutan Retreat. You can sense it in the indigenous wooden features and glorious extras, as well as the outstanding personal service. The four cottages are handcrafted from local stone and dappled with antiques from around the world. They gaze out onto the Mukutan Gorge, an otherworldly setting of orchids and waterfalls.
Everything is designed as a retreat, right up to deliberately not installing WiFi. Safari activities will introduce you to a range of smaller plains animals but you don’t come here for Africa’s giants. You come to get lost in an enormous tract of green wilderness that blurs the boundaries into the surreal.
All programs are tailored individually and there’s lots of choice, with walking trails, secluded hideouts overlooking the waterholes, game drives, plus plenty of activities for children. For a really special experience, spend one night in the roofless cottage which has inspiring views of the stars.
