In 1997 the Chichlowscy family moved into Fisherman's rest. Since then it has changed from a family home to a family-run lodge, which supports long-standing community programs. Set within an enchanting 500-acre forest with breathtaking views over the Great Rift Valley and our very own nature reserve.
For nearly twenty five years Fisherman's Rest has been working alongside neighboring communities in schools and villages. Today It's a thriving not for profit Lodge and Nature Reserve and NGO, the largest employer in the surrounding area and the wider the local community.
Our vision is to see the districts around Fisherman's Rest thrive, through communities working together to raise living standards, education, and economic opportunity.
From Fisherman’s Rest, we organise unforgettable holidays. We are able to offer a range of day trips and tours to the famous Lake of Stars, the National Parks, and wildlife reserves, using lodges and venues that meet all budgets. We also offer opportunities for individuals and groups to engage with local communities across a wide range of projects in schools, clinics, prisons, orphanages, churches, and villages but at the heart of everything we do is a drive to give back to the local communities around us.
We simply love to provide our visitors with an experience that will be cherished for life through the sharing of their energy, time, and skills, whether you want and relaxing escape or to get stuck in on some of our projects we have something for everyone.
