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

If you are looking for a comfortable place to relax and enjoy nature, we highly recommend Kongoni Lodge! The lodge was wonderful – room was spacious and comfortable, and there is lots of space in the house and on the lawn for relaxing, talking, etc. We really were amazed at the variety of wildlife that comes right onto the lawn...

The grounds were tranqual and inviting; the food was absolutely wonderful; and the staff were all great. Had an excellent hike around the land surrounding the Lodge and two really interesting game drives in the reserve. By far the best part... More

We stayed here over one night, trying to be away from busy and noisy Nairobi. The lodge is perfect with many rooms with beautiful interior. I liked the room with antique furniture taste and clean/modern bathroom. We love the panorama view towards the lake from the sitting room (we saw many warthogs) and had very relaxed time and tranquil environment.... More

This was our first stop on a Kenya and Tanzania safari and it was wonderfully relaxing and quiet. The staff were caring and responsive, the chef, Purity, made us a a lunch we... More
