I stayed here for two nights and I was impressed. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, nice food and perfect setting. It's located on the edge of menengai crater with breathtaking views. Each tent has a porch overlooking the crater A quite paradise with fantastic service. Will be back

They have too much to improve! The place looks like it had been shut down and opened on the day we arrived! Nothing seemed to work. The swimming pool looked like sewage had found its way into it. One had to run the water for 15 to 20 minutes before warm water could come out of the shower. you could... More

This beautiful hideout just on the edge of the crater is a perfect place to have as basecamp when visiting the surroundings including the Nakuru National Park. Not far from Nakuru but still calm and silent. They gad very friendly and helpful personal, the service was very good from checkin to checkout. The food they served was very good and... More

We arrived in late afternoon via a very bumpy road but we were pleasantly surprised to find a small tent community with a wonderful bar where the food was the best that I had during my stay in Kenya. The setting was beyond incredible as we sat on our porch overlooking the valley. The tents were rustic and charming. The... More

We only had time for one night to rewind from a busy work week, and that turned out perfect! After arriving we enjoyed a 3-course lunch with a nice glass of South African red wine. Then guide Peter took us for a late afternoon walk in thd crater. Great views, not a lot of animals but mainly nice birds. We... More

A jarring ride down what seemed to be the wrong road opening onto a gem of a view. Nice people, outstanding food, and unfortunately poor facilities. The pool had more algae than most swamps; stairs to tents and inside bathrooms were steep and rickety, almost non-existent inside and grounds lighting, and the confusing dichotomy of cold water sinks and scalding...

A welcome reward for just a bit of effort. Maili Saba's view and service rivals the top hotels in the world. Very attentive and genuine staff are helpful and welcoming without any of the western faults. It's location is utterly breathtaking, perched on the edge of the Menengai Crater. The tents are tastefully appointed and the meals are well composed... More

Menengai Crater is like something out of another time. There are no structures save Maili Saba overlooking this vast cavern in which you can see the path of lava flows from centuries before--. Maili Saba is a charming tented camp site. Each tent has a porch which overlooks the other-worldly splendour which is the crater (or caldera if you want... More

Needed an out of town experience with my wife. Risked it and picked an unknown Mailing Saba. Arrival at night might not be the best idea especially the descend from the main road. However on arrival, the staff, food and soft music at the restaurant were more than lovely. The view of the caldera in the morning was stunning. The... More
