Client Rating for Kenya 5/5 from 58 reviews

Absolutely beautiful place with stunning views! The lodges were gorgeous, once again the food was delicious. Unfortunately the staff didn’t get the best first impression of my mother who was suffering from travel sickness from the drive from Nairobi. But they were outstanding! Friendly and couldn’t do enough for us Special shout out to Mary The only negative thing I can say was there were no facilities to make a cup of tea or coffee in the lodges. It had to be up in the main building
