How much money would you be ready to spend at the lodge frequented by American business magnate Bill Gates?
For many, the sum would be insurmountable. Perhaps even more than Ksh1 million, which would be peanuts for the computer tycoon’s estimated wealth of Ksh12.7 trillion, according to Forbes.
However, regular visitors to the luxurious safari hotel Shompole Lodge spend around Ksh76,800 to rest in the infinity pool while watching elephants and zebras.
The resort, located on the banks of the Ewaso Ngiro River, is a joint venture between the Maasai and the African Conservation Center (ACC).
The large, 250,000-acre area allows visitors to see Kenya’s abundant wildlife as well as the border in Tanzania’s Crater Highlands. Tourists might benefit from the Great Wildebeest Migration.
According to the official website, the resort provides varied cultures from Africa, India, and Europe.
According to the report, the lodge’s construction cost a whopping Ksh146 million, which was partially funded by a grant from the European Union’s biodiversity conservation program and private investors.
