Chui Lodge, situated in the heart of the Oserengoni Wildlife Sanctuary, comprises of 8 luxurious cottages set in a beautifully manicured garden. Enjoy international standard cusine under the shade of our acacia trees whilst you watch the wildlife drinking from the nearby waterhole.
The Lodge was designed and created by June Zwager; her vision was brought to life with help from the local community and her team of skilled craftsmen. The Lodge is built from simple bush stone, Acacia, Olive and Leleshwa wood all sustainably sourced from within the sanctuary. All furniture has been hand crafted at our onsite wood workshop and every piece is unique and adds to the African flare of Chui Lodge.
The dining room, lounge and bar area feature pillars and murals with intricate African carvings, African antiques and ochre coloured walls creating the feel of an artist's gallery. A short walk from the main building and cottages is a large swimming pool with views across the waterhole and the wildlife sanctuary beyond. Having a refreshing dip in the pool while watching herds of giraffe walk down to drink is a unique memory you will keep forever. With so much space and privacy, time here moves slowly and one can lose oneself in the African bush without disturbance.
"Incredible place, even more incredible people.
I stayed at Chui for two nights and I can not say enough incredible things about this place. The lodge is small and feels very private, the rooms are spacious and beautiful. There is a beautiful pool and the entire property overlooks the sanctuary filled with animals. The activities are amazing, the game drives, our driver was fantastic we even found a couple leopards which was great. The bush sundowner amazing, the bush breakfast and the boat ride. After having lived in Kenya and stayed in countless lodges what stands out the most about this place is the people, I have never encountered more lovely and kind people, you should be very proud of them. 5 stars, will recommend Chui to all my friends and I will be back!"
