Discover: Shompole Lodge
















Located in southern Kenya on a private conservancy overlooking the Great Rift Valley, Shompole lodge is a conservation minded eco-lodge that is anything but rustic. It's a romantic and chic getaway "off-the-beaten" path that is just perfect for a honeymoon or romantic holiday.

Founded and designed  by Anthony Russell, a Kenyan native and founder of Art of Ventures, this luxury lodge not only supports and works with the local community it also protects wildlife at the same time.  The local Maasai community gets 30% of the proceeds made from the lodge and conservancy, which goes to improve their infrastructure and raise their standards of living. I'm truly impressed by this model of community partnership, so inspiring...
