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, being two adults and a four year old spend a Saturday night at Kiangazi. There are some positives and some not so positives. Overall it is a nice place, well located and with friendly and pro active staff but was just let down by a few things. Upon arrival greeted with cool towels, no problems with check in and... More

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

"Kiangazi House, a real highlight, stunning location with broad sweeping valley views, grand colonial house, elegant furnishings complete with finishing touches like the open fire & huge bouquets of fresh roses in our room. We were welcomed with afternoon tea on the lawns and again breakfast to enjoy watching the wildlife. The service from staff at all times was discreet... More

What a disaster! We booked this place months in advance as the start of our two week trip to Kenya--the first for all in our group. We were so excited. The place was highly recommended by Nairobi based friends, and we were especially attracted by the historical charm of the property. But the horrible treatment started on our arrival--very cool...

A very special place. The service is quite possibly the best we have found after 5 years in Kenya..! The food was truly excellent and even the children left clean plates after every meal..! The game drive with James in the private game reserve was made even more special with a bonfire and sun-downers overlooking the plains... Would not hesitate... More

Been here twice already and will keep going back. The service and welcome I received from Michael and his team was outstanding, chef Richard's food was out of this world and the game drive was the highlight of my weekend. I have been to Kiangazi twice and cannot wait to go back.
