THE RESORT

Kanyawegi Dala Resort is built on a site where there has never been built before. A natural spot in the middle of a local agriculture and cattle breeding area. We’ve built it predominantly with the natural stone that can be found in the local grounds. Often, those were big boulders that were made manually into smaller stones.

The people who worked for us all came from the local area and from the surrounding villages. The design of the cottages is inspired by the African round houses with thatched roofs. The design and layout of the buildings were panned out on blueprint by Kadogo, Hans and a Kenyan. The manner of building is local. The masonry is a puzzle work with pieces of natural stone that are joined gracefully with grout. For the concrete, the rocks were beaten very small and used as gravel. The iron braiding for the gravel is also being done manually in an easy way. The pouring of the concrete of the eating room and kitchen is done by a group of men who form a football team together and work as construction workers.

The result of this manner of building are playful and colorful buildings that fit beautifully into nature. The water for the construction proceedings has been delivered from Lake Victoria with donkeys or caught as rain water. For safety reasons the cottages are outfitted with corrugated iron instead of thatched roofs, which is also to catch rain water in large water tanks ranging from 3,000 to 10,000 liters. The rounded roofs of the cottages were a challenge to build. Now we catch enough rain water to ensure our own water needs. The garden surrounding the buildings has been planted with a variation of fruit trees, such as papaya, avocado, mango, passion fruit, limes, bananas, local fruits such as tomados, zambarao and moringa, herbs, and of course all kinds of tropical plants, such as lemongrass, bougainville, palm trees, whistle trees etc. and our own local vegetables, such as sukamawiki, kunde, suga and mrenda. All these vegetables and fruits have been incorporated into dishes from our kitchen.
