Desert Rose is a unique eco-friendly lodge located at 5,500 feet on the verdant cedar forest slopes of Mt Nyiru which towers majestically above the Elberta plains, between Karisia Mountains and Lake Turkana in North Kenya.
From the lodge, there are breathtaking views over the Northern Frontier, the desert, and the distant Blue Mountains.
Desert Rose is about the space, the views, the scenery, and people. It is possible to explore all the craters, volcanoes, and the incredible Lake Turkana by plane on wonderful ‘flying safaris’, returning to the cool green mountain in the afternoon.

There are so many wonderful unique experiences and activities to enjoy, from these flying safaris to visit various culturally important sites and spectacular locations, to nature walks around the mountain, camel walks and visiting the local tribal communities.
Desert Rose consists of five unique houses fashioned out of stone and olive wood accommodating up to twelve people. Houses are entirely secluded, which guarantees comfort and intimacy.
WHY CHOOSE DESERT ROSE LODGE?
- Baboons and leopards are often heard close-by in the granite rock cliffs and the fig trees that abound with birdlife. In very close proximity to the lodge, we have an exciting natural rock slide and a perfect picnic site, a fun spot to spend the midday hours. There is a multitude of walks one can take from the lodge in the dry rugged country on the valley floor or high in the Cedar and Podo forest.
- There are journeys by road, either to the north to the Turkana Lake for fishing and an adventure into this rugged part of the world or towards the Ndoto Mountains for some wild rock climbing.
- The main lounge and a pool area have been handcrafted to blend with the indigenous gardens, landscaped to enhance the dramatic views. In the main lounge, guests have at their disposal a fully stocked bar, a sitting room, and a fireplace.
