Reviewed by Kate Siber

The Laikipia District of northeastern Kenya is home to some of the last vestiges of ancient culture in Africa, and the resident Maasai are the living ancestors of these ancient cultures. One such group, the Il Laikipiak Maasai, took a drastic step toward preserving both their culture and the wild nature of their 16,500 acres of land: They set aside 80 percent of it for conservation and ecotourism and built a model eco-lodge called Il Ngwesi.

Il Ngwesi's community-run lodge looks out over the vast landscape of Kenya's Northern Frontier District—over unspoiled land where not a single light shines out and only the chorus of African bush is heard both day and night. The bandas offer unforgettable views of the vast surrounding landscape and exquisite comfort, while relaxing at the horizon pool lets guests watch wildlife come to drink at a popular water spring.
