Kikuyu Lodge sent a driver to pick us, two females, in the pouring rain from Jomo Kenyatta airport. Plane was circling due to weather and landed late, but the driver waited for us to get off the plane, go through thermal body scan that measured our temperature one by one, buy visas, collect luggage. Francis stood there with the sign... More

The guest house was great. Clean rooms and good food, if you wish typical kenyan food. The manager Trevor is doing a great job. He is organising everything for you like Safaris to where you want like Masai Mara or Hell's Gate and also day trips to Nairobi or the Elephant Orphanage. If you request also your clothes get washed... More

We know that your holiday is a special time and genuinely want you to have the best experience of Kenya. There is a lot of negative about the country in the media but these problems are isolated to specific areas. It is a joy to know that people are still coming and finding the wildlife parks, scenery and people have... More

Just tell Trevor Kent what you want and he can design a personalized program for you that's lower in price and higher in quality than any of the tour companies can offer. And Hannah's cooking was fantastic! Not to mention that she unexpectedly did our laundry while we were out. The B&B itself is something of an island in the... More

Very peaceful, welcoming and comfortable place in Kikuyu (just outside Central Nairobi). Trevor organised a 3 day safari in the Masai Mara for me and took all the hassle out of this, and the safari was great. I was given coffee and cake on arrival and made to feel very much at home by Hannah (one of the staff members).... More

We recently spent one night at the Kikuyu Lodge before heading on safari in the Masai Mara. i chose this hotel for its location away from downtown Nairobi and that it is an easy starting point to head to the Mara.

Trevor was able to organise my safari trip, accommodation and airport transfers for an extremely brief & last minute trip to Kenya. He did everything with 1 days notice, without missing a beat. I would have loved to spend more time with him discussing world politics and F1 racing =)
