MPATA DESIGN
Commanding a majestic panorama of Masai Mara, the Savannah of the maasai people, the lodge is astride a plateau gently sloping down towards a rugged, well-defined escarpment.

23 cottages are spread on both sides of the centrally placed common club-house parallel to the escarpment.

The club-house fuses two basically semi-circular, fan-shaped components. Beneath this are various functions which are terraced relative to the sloping terrain.

In the centre is an open patio which serves as the focal generator of the plan as well as a ventilator and shaft for natural daylight.

The structure has been kept open to allow natural cross ventilation, but where there are strong winds, as occurs along the peripheral edges of the dining and bar areas, glass windbreakers have been installed.

Front desk, guest relations office and the gift shop are located in the lobby
