Hippo Point Dodo's Folly, Naivasha
About Hippo Point Dodos Folly
The luxurious Dodo’s Tower is a unique building featured in many international magazines such as Architectural Digest (cover), Departures magazine (cover) and fashion magazines like Vogue, Marie Claire and Elle, along with several books such as Taschen’s Great Hotels Africa and African Interiors. The unique architecture, a 115-foot Cypress clad tower, blends with the surrounding forest of Acacia trees. The tower is exquisitely decorated with antiques from Europe and fine hand made local furniture. The Tower sleeps 6 (4 doubles and 1 single room) so very special for families (but children under 12 years old are not allowed at the tower), VIP’s and Honeymoon couples anytime of the year. This is a wonderful place to see Giraffe grazing below from a high vantage as the sun sets on the lake.
There are 4 balconies and a spacious living room overlooking the lake with an amazing view from the top and an excellent five star kitchen serving home grown
and home made food - including our house specialty, which everyone loves, our very own caramelized ginger ice cream!
Dodo’s Tower has five rooms. The ideal number of guests is 3 couples. Dodo’s room - the spacious master bedroom on the 3rd floor is spectacular with a wrap-around balcony with one of the best views in the world so the perfect honeymoon suite. It has a lovely private bathroom just above for long soaks in the cool evening. The two double bedrooms, known as the blue room and the red room on the 2nd floor both have views of the lake. These rooms share a bathroom (giant shower only). Michael’s room is heavenly and sits on the 1st floor has a private bathroom. This room has a view to the fantastic forest of acacia trees and by cracking open your window at sunrise you will be bathed in gorgeous light. The single green room on the ground floor has an adjacent bathroom (used by guides and pilots).

THINGS TO DO
Slow game walks in the early morning
and evening are wonderful and rich with game.
Our sanctuary is not fenced and shares boundaries with a game reserve so it is abundant with wildlife.
The place is also a bird lovers dream with over 500 species of birds.- a feeling of being one with nature.
Thank you for the delightful luncheon at your tower home. It was so generous of you to open your home to welcome us in Africa.
