Bashay Rift Lodge Highlights

Bashay Rift Lodge is situated on top of Umbwe Hill in Bashay village in the Karatu District. Built on a large piece of land, the lodge has kept almost 90% of the wilderness as it was before construction began, the remaining 10% having been turned over to coffee plants and a beautifully manicured garden with rolling lawns. Located on the edge of the escarpment is the main building, restaurant and bar. Here, guests can relax in the cosy lounge or bar or watch the sun go down from the large and impressive terraces facing Oldeani Mountain and Lake Eyasi. Fine cuisine including fresh produce from the lodge's own garden is served in the dining room.
