Tassia Lodge captures all elements of the Kenyan bush and is an ideal escape for those searching for a taste of an unspoiled Africa.
Tassia Lodge is set in a stunning wilderness area, situated on the 60,000 acre Lekurruki Community Ranch. It gives a spectacular and breathtaking view of the Northern Frontier District towards Samburu. It neighbours Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and Borana.
Tassia is perched dramatically on the edge of a rocky bluff, which protrudes from the Mokogodo escarpment and overlooks a valley filled with Acacia and Newtonia trees.
Staying at Tassia means removing yourself from the world as you know it (no tv, no internet, no cell reception) - whether walking through the bush or scrambling up to caves where the Maasai used to live, you will not meet another car or tourist. The Laikipiak (Mokogodo) Maasai, have been the guardians of the Mokogodo forest for over a century. Descending from the Yaku tribe, they lived in caves, foraging in the forest, tending goats and bee keeping.
During the 1920's their lives changed dramatically after they were raided by the Wakamba tribe, resulting in many deaths and theft of their precious ivory. The Yaku subsequently disowned their name, and re-emerged as Laikipiak Maasai, adopting the Maasai's language and way of life.
In the 1940's the people decided to increase their grazing in the forest for their cattle, clearing the bush, thus creating a beautiful Andanguru Plain, surrounded by the primal Mokogodo forest, which guests at Tassia can enjoy today.
