Peaceful, personal and beautiful. I had the pleasure of staying on Sanctuary farm for 2 weeks whilst doing some research and saw a whole range of ways to enjoy this wonderful place. The clubhouse is the perfect stop-off when travelling through Naivasha. The restaurant is situated by the lake with a large stretch of grazing out the front. It's location... More

Driving into Sanctuary Farm you see dozens of wildebeest, zebra, and various other wildlife. The property is fairly large and you are allowed to walk around and get very close to the animals on the property. People have said the rooms are rustic and basic, but I don't know if I would necessarily give that same description. The rooms are... More

Despite a couple of hiccups with the room (dodgy light and a leaking toilet) our stay at Sanctuary Farm was peaceful and relaxing. The food was very good and the location was excellent. A particular highlight was finding zebras munching grass outside our room door. Overall a most relaxing experience.

I spent a day at Sanctuary Farm. I went on a 2 hours horse ride, boat ride, and ate lunch. What a wonderful place. Everything was perfect, from ability to book horse ride and lunch via email (and receiving a very prompt response); to happy and well cared for horses, to immaculate grounds with freely roaming zebras, giraffes, wildebeests, and...

We came here for lunch after walking around crescent island. Was very impressed with the home freshly prepared food. The creations were inventive, showed a fabulous use of ingredients, and also, great skills of the chef(s). There were quite a few dishes, laid out as a buffet, mainly salads including butternut squash, roasted aubergine, and I forget the rest, but... More

We were 3 women, two toddlers and a couple. Overall an amazing place. They were so accommodating with food and meal times with us and the children. It is beautiful with all the wildlife out the door. Great for kids to run and play. Ideal with toddlers. The rooms are simple but nice, my room had low lighting, but otherwise... More

What a fantastic place! Wildlife all around, peace, quiet, great food, great service, friendly people, nice rooms and lots of fun stuff to do. We went to the hot springs at Hells Gate NP and on a boat trip. You can also go horse riding and other stuff. The only thing to be improved is the WIFI: slow and only... More

Sanctuary Farm is an incredibly peaceful easy get-away from Nairobi. The food - especially at lunch - is phenomenal - the food is fresh, creative and varied. (And what a cheese board!) The grounds are beautiful and calm - and it's a treat to be that close to animals. The one note of caution however is that the rooms are... More

10 out of 10! Wonderful for all ages. My husband and I and 3 kids (8, 11, 14) met my cousin and her fiancée there. We stayed in the rooms and camped one night. Both accommodations were wonderful. Incredible way to start our 3 week adventure. Walk with zebras, monkeys, wildebeest, antelope and giraffes. Eat amazing food! Take a boat... More
