Lighting is provided by solar. There is a back up generator in case of emergency. A personal chef is available to prepare own food.
The Tassia Eco-lodge is run by Laikipiak (Mukogodo) Maasai. The 6 individual rooms offer en-suite facilities and privacy. The rate include activities- visits to local Manyattas, day and night game drives, bush walks and picnics, camel rides and treks. The lodge has a natural rock swimming pool and natural water hole where animals come to quench their thirst. A unique activity is paragliding at Mt Lossos (7,300 feets). You hike up the mountain in paraglide down. You are likely to see elephants, lions, waterbucks, leopards and hyenas. Loimugi trees, a favorite for elephants grow in abundance in the valleys.
All the profits generated from this lodge go into funding of local community activities- school, mobile clinic and others.
