A visual experience
As you move through the Lodge and its grounds you will meet, and sometimes be startled by, a wide variety of artworks.
You will certainly not appreciate them all; — but we hope they will be provocative or inspiring enough to elicit a thought or two —- and, maybe, an emotion.
Some are in stone, but most are carved from various types of wood. Waakamba carvers did the earlier works; but, subsequently, over the years, our resident carver has added a multitude of pieces; — from simple fence-post figures to much more intricate pieces etched in marble.
Large and small paintings cover most of the wall spaces in the restaurant / bar area.
A well-established Nairobi artist may be sharing the same wall space with a local, unknown amateur.
Genuinely clever and artistic fabrications in sheet steel; they occupy the grounds of the Lodge and are very popular with children and those looking for unusual photos / “selfies”.
The metal surfaces acquire a weathered ‘patina’ that actually enhances the realism of the creations.
