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

The food is amazing.. the scenery from the restaurant is amazing... the peace, the serenity is amazing. Fun activities for the whole family are to be found in Horse Riding and watching the dairy farming activities. However please be aware, that if you are particular about basic luxury like comfortable bedding and good bathrooms then you may need to recalibrate... More

Great place with a fantastically laid back feel. Granted this is not a "professional" hotel, but neither does it market itself as such. Our interconnecting room for four was fantastic, showers were hot and rooms nicely cleaned. Of course there are Mosquitos around, you are by a lake!!! If you don't like, or can't tolerate a few insects, then you... More

Just love Sanctuary farm...! Super easy to get there.... Stunning views of vulcanoes, hills, lake & game. Lots of game! Grazing on your door step.Food is divine, proper fusion kitchen with the best local products and proper touch of 'river café-cuisine'. Rooms rustique and elegant a la France, creating a proper down time environment.... And when done with your book... More

This is as far as you can get from the big hotels where you feel you are just another revenue generating guest You feel it when you come go this sanctuary. There is a lot of personality here! It is basic but lovely. For ex; The hot water for your morning shower is heated by a wood fire which Moses... More

The location is very pleasant and peaceful, with giraffe browsing among the acacia trees and zebra and wilderbeast grazing alongside horses and cattle. Directions from the gate were poor and it would not take much to erect a few sign posts on the property to make it easier to find the rooms - based on other reviews we were not... More

It was so good that we changed our intinerary and decided to come back after our 2 week stay on the Kenyan coast for an additional 3 nights. On our first stop-over we stayed in the... More
