Little Shompole

Lake Natron, Kenya

Prices From: $444

Little Shompole consists of two vast private suites, located within a few minutes walk of the main Shompole Lodge, but positioned with the utmost consideration for privacy and exclusivity. Each suite boasts its own lounge area, cool-pool and spacious sun-deck. Both rooms share a private mess and a stunning horizon pool that overlooks the Lake Natron basin and the volcanic slopes of Northern Tanzania. Guests at Little Shampole enjoy a dedicated team of staff, private guide and butler service.

Being located in a private conservancy, Little Shompole is able to offer guests the chance to enjoy the local flora and fauna on foot with the added benefit of a very experienced guide who is there to enlighten you with information about what you are seeing. Game-viewing in the conservancy can also take place in the specially-modified safari 4x4 vehicles and can often be very rewarding. Wildlife in the area includes lion, buffalo, leopard, giraffe, eland, wildebeest, gazelle, zebra, cheetah, elephant and many more. Night drives also present a great opportunity to see some of the rare animals.

For the more active, Little Shompole has a number of mountain bikes that one can take for a ride, accompanied by a guide. Inflatable canoes are also available for a leisurely afternoon drift down the Ewaso Nyiro River where the banks are lined with yellow fig trees and the peace and tranquility is extremely relaxing. As a community initiative, your Masai hosts are pleased to initiate you into their ways and traditions. A visit to Shompole village on a market day can be a very rewarding and enriching experience.
