Fabulous lodge, personalized and professional service. The adjoining reserve is wonderful - we had a great time on late afternoon game drives, having sundowners in the reserve and then heading back with a night drive to the lodge. Our driver/guide Paul was excellent and catered to a very broad group (young kids, old kids, adults etc). We live in Nairobi... More

Loved. Knowledgable safari driver. Well kept accommodations quiet and peaceful. Panoramic views from most windows. Whether you do an early morning safari or a sunset safari, you won't be disappointed!

Very nice and calm family/couples hotel, their safari arrangements are excellent (dont miss the early morning game-walks which bring you very close to the animals and tve surrounding nature) as is the food! The staff are friendly and service minded and the rooms are decent! Make sure to enjoy some after-safari drinks on the beatiful porch.

We stayed a night here as a weekend out of Nairobi. The House has a great view over the Lake and you can watch a lot of animals (zebra, giraffe, impala, warthog) from the veranda of the main house as you eat your meals. The food was fantastic. Each meal we had was delicious and the portions were enormous. We... More

Kiangazi House is simply stunning, both in terms of location, the accommodation and furnishings, the food and the staff. Michael and John are perfect hosts and Florence takes such good care of everything. Though at the higher end of pricing (perhaps), it absolutely provides value for money. You get what you pay for at this place and we will definitely... More
