I stayed at Kongoni with a group of old friends for a little over a week. It felt like a home away from home and so very peaceful. What also made it so relaxing was how fantastic and organised and the staff were. From offering relaxing massages, organising early morning game drives, sundowner drinks at viewpoint and breakfast by the... More

I recently returned from a two week stay at the Kongoni Lodge in Naivasha. Firstly, the ARR reserves (The animal charity that monitors the game reserve) were fantastic. A great variety of landscapes, viewpoints and so many animals. The land os cared for and the animals plentiful, meaning every time we went out for a drive there was countless different... More

Martin and Wesley were knowledgeable about all the Kenyan flora & fauna and also catered to our every need and more. Ed was an amazing host, constantly springing wonderful surprises on... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Kongoni Lodge when we got married there in July. Helen and Richard were extremely helpful and the setting was simply sumptuous! The rooms are immaculate, the epitome of Kenyan charm, and the grounds stunning. I would recommend Kongoni Lodge in a heart beat! In addition to the wedding, we have stayed... More

To be lost in a nostalgic, magical realm of all one’s fantasies of old Africa in a by gone age, is to stay in Kongoni Lodge on the ARR Reserve. It has the atmosphere of a personal home, one feeling a character in its sepia world. The welcoming warmth of all the staff offers a sense of family intimacy, which... More

This is my second time back to Kongoni Lodge on the ARR reserve and as before I was not disappointed. Another wonderful week in a beautiful colonial period setting with all the wildlife imaginable crossing and grazing the lawn just feet away and beyond them far reaching views down to Lake Oliedon and Lake Naivasha beyond that. The staff could... More
