Lodge in a wonderful landscape far away from all the hustle and bustle of the big city (for example Nairobi). The peace and the silence are amazing on this location. The lodge is well organized by Zac and his team. Excellent customer service from all the staff, good food in the restaurant. John the "fishing guide" was excellent. His knowledge... More

It was an amazing experience. We came to a warm reception and seamless checking in. Rates are friendly ad competitive, supporting major payment forms. We later had a hike, which the owner(s) took it to the themselves to show us around. The hotel has an amazing eco system and support from the local community.

A regular visitor to Aberdare Cottages, I spent this last weekend there with a dozen pals. As always, Aberdare Cottages was an idyllic place to hangout and recharge from the hustles of life. The reception, meals and rooms were excellent. The newly completed fishing lodge bungalows, which are nestled next to the Mathioya river, were a very relaxing place to... More

We had been there to celebrate out Valentine vacation. It is a really nice place with nature all around and make you remember your childhood days of villages. We stayed in Self catering Banda near Riverside. and it was amazing experience there.

We have just returned from a long weekend at the Aberdare Cottages and Campsite. As a group of 12, it would have been easy to understand if staff were overwhelmed at check in. This was certainly not the case, and we were quickly given our set of keys to the self-catered and riverside cottages, a few minutes drive away from... More

The location is amazing and is an excellent place to unwind, given the fact it is just 2-3hrs drive from Nairobi, gives more time to be spent in the resort rather than on the road. Zack and his staff are very warm and welcoming, their service is very nice. We had a great weekend in the location. The food was... More

I had a shockingly nice experience with place. Let me tell you this place is nurtured by purest love and affection of ZAC and his dedicated staffs. It is surrounded by amazing tea plantation and river for tilapia fishing. The air is so much pure and ambiance is heavenly, untouched by human invasion. Everything in this cottage has been carefully... More

This is a superb resort located in the Tea zone in Kangema. It is less than two hours from Nairobi. The food is freshly prepared and the personnel are very attentive to detail. The environment is serene ,only the chirping of birds is to be heard. Its definitely a nice place to unwind over the weekend.
