The food was ok, but nothing special and the wine selection was pretty simple. But, that said, it is a place far from the nearest shop and you can't expect a 7 course meal in such a place.... More

Great place to go for a day or few days from Nairobi. Good thing you are able to walk in the park next to zebra's and giraffes.

This place is impressive, beautiful!! It is hard to get here, you must either walk for hours or rent a private matutu if you don't have your own transport... The lunch there is very average and extremely expensive.. Skip lunch, go straight up to the crater and walk around, you could have a tea on your way out for sunset...... More
