Building of the lodge was started in 2005 but it was never completed. Time, dust,& wind has degraded the buildings as they sat unoccupied. Error in technical design didn’t help much either, so it was decided to keep the bedrooms main structure and to make them more open to the outside breeze.
Some of the wood was also badly attacked by `dudus` ( swahili for insects). So frames and doors had to be rebuilt. We thought it would take on more character with some `Masai` flair.
The reception area being opened up to create the new main entrance which was lacking in the original building.
