The charming Otter Cottage is nestled within Naivasha's 80 acre Kilimandege Sanctuary ('Hill of Birds')- treasured home of the late wildlife documentary film pioneers, Joan & Alan Root.

Whether you're yearning for a well-deserved break or need a central base to begin a Naivasha adventure, Otter Cottage and its giraffe are ready to welcome you into its little secret.

Indawo
Hosting- and boasting- over 350 species of birds and wildlife, the house observes an explosion of spots, stripes and tweets that roam free across the grasslands and lakefront of the sanctuary.

Left to the foundation by Joan Root, the area is steeped not only in Kenyan history but also international significance: acting as both treasured home and project HQ for Joan & Alan's internationally acclaimed and groundbreaking work for the National Geographic, the 40-year spanning 'Survival' series and numerous independent wildlife films and adventures.

MAY 2021 UPDATE: Kindly note that VegPro, a nearby farm, have sadly plopped their lake pump just the other side of our boundary. It's recently been sound-proofed (hooray!) so the noise shouldn't impact your stay. We are still trying to convince them to disguise the structure, maybe as a giant sparkly unicorn. Other suggestions welcome!

Secondary teacher turned farmer: came to Kenya, got the bug, still here! I am lucky enough to co-manage a beautiful farm on the shores of Lake Naivasha with my ridiculous I'm-going-to-take-things-apart-and-probably-not-put-them-back-together-again husband. Sharing an office with one's spouse can be challenging so we both love a wee side project to make life just that little bit more ludicrous... Love: elephants & mayonnaise. Hate: ostriches & mustard.

Alternatively, he is equally happy to be your go-to-guy for everything from serving tea to lighting BBQs.
