Safari Line Africa
We are pleased to introduce Ngerende Island Lodge and Ngerende in the Wild both located in the world's famous Masai Mara, Kenya, an area abundant with wild animals.
Ngerende has been stylishly designed to provide the ideal safari experience where comfort, luxury and outstanding personal service combine naturally with the beautiful wilderness of the Masai Mara. The lodge offers exclusive accommodation, as we can sleep just 14 guests in individual and contemporary designed suites. All seven suites offer stunning views of the Mara River. Whilst in the main building, the dining room extends onto the veranda overlooking the Mara River and the nearby hippo pod. There is an infinity swimming pool overlooking one of the largest Hippo Pods in the Northern Mara and a spa offering therapeutic treatments.
Ngerende in the Wild offers the ultimate in tented luxury complete with double beds, Egyptian linen, and custom made rugs, comfortable seats, hammock, cutlery, and private bar and fine dining in the wild but also maintain a vital interaction with nature blending with the landscape. Each suite has massage showers, flushing toilets and is supported by its own kitchen chefs, butlers, exclusive use of vehicle and experienced professional driver guides.
The Camp and Lodge have initiated projects which support, empower and provide education and a better future for the Kenyan communities not forgetting the conservation of the wildlife and the environment.

We have initiated and funded a community school at Enkerende as it was felt there was a need for a local primary school. Currently the more than 70 children are educated in a church, where they take turns to be taught. In the morning the little children attend lessons and in the afternoon the older children receive theirs. We are funding and are constructing a school which will have enough classrooms to accommodate all the children from the Masai Manyattas within the conservancy to improve levels of education.
The challenge after completing the school will be to sustain funding in order to maintain the infrastructure, pay salaries for the teachers, buy books and other essential items thereby continuing the quality of education offered.
We encourage guests to buy school equipment from Nairobi and we will collect and deliver them to the school through our regular supply vehicles. Cash donations can be made at the lodge or sent to our bank account marked Ngerende Community Projects.
In Kenya waste is a major issue creating environmental problems for the wildlife, marine eco-system and of course health hazards for humans.
We have initiated projects to help the local communities in the Masai Mara and people living in the environs of the lodge and the urban slums of Nairobi to earn a sustainable livelihood. We are encouraging the local Masai ladies and other ladies from other local communities living within the lodge to make bead crafts and products made from recycled materials which we offer to guests staying with us at the lodge, providing the women with an outlet for their crafts.
For the people living in the “Slum”, we have donated a workshop with machinery to produce various products from recycled materials. Residents are free to visit the workshop and if desired create their own products. We encourage the slum dwellers to collect and make individual and unique products such as sculptures, fashion accessories, jewellery and handbags all made from flip flops, recycled waste products such as tyre tubes, sisal or polythene papers which are stocked at the lodge gift shop.
These products, both from the Masai and other communities, and the self-help group, are handcrafted and all products are generously priced to provide reasonable earnings for the otherwise impoverished but talented artisans and sculptors. The earnings allow them to provide for themselves and families in terms of food, medical bills and education.
