Lodge Location - Ngerende Island Lodge
Ngerende Island Lodge enjoys a simply beautiful setting. Located within an oxbow on the Mara River, the lodge is surrounded on all sides by water, but for a 100 yard wide section where the river has not quite joined up to become a true island.
The lodge shares its river-side plot with two large pods of hippos, at famous look-out points that have been popular with visitors for many years. These are now exclusive to Ngerende, as they are within the private area surrounding the lodge.
The lodge is situated about 120kms from Narok town (a two hour drive or 4 hours from Nairobi) on the Olchoro – Oirogua Conservation Ranch which borders the Masai Mara Game Reserve.
The Olchoro – Oirogua Ranch covers more than 17,400 acres and is mainly open savannah except along the banks of the Mara River which are heavily wooded and are ideal habitat for wildlife.
The lodge lies at 5300 feet above sea level and is serviced by its own airstrip, just 2kms away, making access very easy, all year round.
