Perched on a panoramic hilltop, with hundreds of miles of sun streaked savannah spread out below, Mutamaiyu is a spectacularly refined retreat in one of Africa’s last great wilderness areas – the 49,000 acre Mugie Wildlife Conservancy in Laikipia. These rugged plains and lush woodlands are home to some of the richest diversities of wildlife on the continent including elephant, leopard, cheetah, the rare Grevy’s zebra and stunning birdlife.
Mutamaiyu House has 6 superb luxury cottages, to reserve individually or in exclusivity, built to take full advantage of the spectacular views. This gracious manor house, the private home of Nicky and Gaby Hahn, boasts historical furnishings from the family’s art collection, high-ceilinged patios and a large dining room, where arguably Kenya’s finest cuisine is served. Private lounges, with fireplaces are the perfect place to curl up on a couch with a glass of wine. A flower-lined path leads down to a heated cliff top infinity pool.
Mutamaiyu offers its guests a unique opportunity to live their own African dream: participating in ranch life and vital conservation work, watching ancient Pokot ceremonies, tracking the lions at the centre of the fascinating Laikipia Predator Project as well as memorable game drives will keep even the most intrepid traveller thoroughly fascinated.
