Activities that can be booked at the lodge include guided nature walks and game drives conducted in specially adapted open-sided safari vehicles, perfect for spotting the Big Five game animals as well as the famous herds of elephants. Other activities include Maasai dancing and cultural displays. Specially arranged culturally-interactive trips to local Maasai villages and/or schools can also be arranged to learn about their rich culture and traditions. Sundowners, bush breakfasts, lunches, and dinners are great ways to take in the spectacular scenery while enjoying a delicious meal or a cocktail.
The main lodge is set within mature wooded gardens with a wide variety of trees and plants which include thorn trees, acacias, aromatic frangipanis, colorful bougainvillea, and giant cacti. These gardens are also home to numerous species of birds as well as monkeys, mongooses, squirrels, duikers, the occasional gazelle, and sometimes a leopard. The domed reception area is made to look like a traditional Maasai house. The main area houses the lobby, Maasai handicraft market, Kibo Restaurant, Hemingway Bar, Mawenzi Bar, and Mawenzi Terrace. There is also a pool and pool bar with views of Mount Kilimanjaro.
