We recently stayed here for a week and I honestly don't think Trevor or Hannah could have done anymore for us! Hannah always provided us with amazing food and one day when we come home she even sowed up a rucksack that had broke (and did such a good job we couldn't even tell which strap had been fixed!)

I recently traveled to Kenya with 5 friends from university to complete a teaching placement for a month. We stayed in the lodge for our first week in Kenya and could not have had a nicer stay.

We traveled for our 11 day Kenya to Tanzania safari with my family, we loved all the arrangements made by one Thomas Didige of Affable Tours and Safaris, he recommended this lodge, I must say it was exactly what we were expecting, friendly staff, very nice food. I would recommend it to anyone any-day.

We travelled for 3 weeks in Tanzania and Kenya last year with our twin boys at the age of 3. We generally stayed at 3-4 star hotels but Kikuyu Lodge was our favourite of all the places we stayed. The reason we liked it so much was the friendliness and helpfulness of Trevor and Hannah who both made us feel... More

We stayed for several nights and used the Lodge as a base. We were extremely well looked after as a pensioner couple looking for both rest and excursions. Trevor arranged what ever transport was needed and sorted out any difficulties. Hannah cooked great meals, both local and international and covered all other housekeeping arrangements. This is more like sharing someone's... More

We were on a two week self drive safari. Trevor's contacts in sorting a 4X4, his local knowledge, and willingness to help, with everything from loaning us spare fuel cans, tools, and his personal Sat' Nav', to advice on routes, made our holiday in Kenya the best to date. Staying at the Kikuyu Lodge Hotel is not the sterile, insulating... More

My family and friends (8 people in total) stayed in Kikuyu Lodge for 1 night after our arrival in Nairobi and before departing for Safari. We love the room, garden, food, and everything at the Lodge! The only setback is that the shower in our room has very small water flow but anyway we do not need a waterfall:)
