I got Chris's number from another website and went there for motorbike repairs. Although Chris normally works on the much bigger bike he did an excellent job sorting my issues out and charged a very fair rate. He has good facilities and tools for working on bikes and is a trained BMW mechanic. Mine was a Yamaha but he handled... More

In addition to the other glowing reviews of Jungle Junction, I really do believe this is an extraordinary facility. It's super-clean, friendly, well located and it fulfils all of the needs of travellers. The wi-fi is reliable and very fast, the owner (Chris) charming and friendly, and the staff polite and dedicated. Jungle Junction is also affordable! The dorm rooms... More

The perfect stop for the independent traveller passing through Kenya. Choose from one of the double rooms or a dorm bed if you want a break from sleeping in your tent or roof tent, whether you are travelling by 4x4 or bike. The large and spacious communal room is kept immaculately clean all day, a log fire lit if the... More

If you are passing through Kenya overland, need mechanical assistance with your bike or car or just need a safe pleasant place to camp up then you need to stay at Jungle Junction. I have been staying with them over the last 6 years on various trips and can only pour praise on the professionalism and courtesy one experiences when... More

I planned to stay at Jungle Junction for a few days to make use of the workshop facilities but the welcoming atmosphere and the collection of diverse, like minded travelers had me stretch my stay to almost two weeks. The expertise of the mechanics onsite and the owner, Chris Handschuh, proved invaluable in getting my bike up and running. Combine... More

Especially a good spot for overlanders, dont go anywhere else. Spacious, clean, quiet and ran by a team of good personnel. Owner is a good help with plenty... More

We stood for a week (Jan 2014) in the Jungle Junction and really liked it. The place moved and is now very safe, the security has been heavily upgrade: 2,5 m walls with barbed wire, 3 watchman at night on duty, 200m to the police station, watch dogs emergency buttons and a armed security company. That's what I call pretty... More
