The Library is a vaulted-ceiling rotunda of 50 feet diameter built into the living rock. Surrounding its central pillar is a rosette of hand made Kitengela stained glass which forms the floor of the deck above. So at night, the deck floor is illuminated through the glass.
The Library is our “club room” area where you can read, write, relax or chat with fellow guests and hosts. There are comfortable sofas and lots of books and games coupled with stunning views over the rolling hills. There is also a DVD player and we have a good collection of Africa-themed movies and documentaries.
It’s a lovely place to have your pre dinner drinks, sitting around the fire and catching up on all your days activities and adventures! We encourage guests to have a private dinner in here one night, it’s a lovely space at night and with a really warm, welcoming and relaxing ambience.
This is also the space where guests taking exclusive use of the entire lodge can have group dinners.
Above the library is a beautiful open air viewing deck which has a fire pit and a bar. Lots of guests have lunch up here; pre-dinner drinks under the vast starry skies sitting around the fire is also a favourite pastime of our guests! Our New Year’s Eve parties held here are legendary.
