This is Kenya’s Lake Nakuru, a soda lake nestled into the ancient Rift Valley and a feeding ground for thousands of flamingos. Only two and a half hours from Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, the lake is protected by the surrounding national park, a mix of woodlands, bush, savannah and volcanic cliffs that make it a perfect habitat for four of Africa’s Big Five. Not wanting to waste the view, the tent is spacious and the freestanding bath looks outwards. While the exterior environment at The Cliff is pure Africa, the room interiors combine organic chic with international design to create the understated style of a modern boutique hotel. Each tent is built on solid foundations at the edge of the cliff, and faces the lake, allowing guest’s 180 degree views of the panoramic paradise, yet maintaining privacy.
