We spent 5 days here over Easter with 2 kids and other friends and will not forget this holiday soon! The landscape with the stimulating views on the perfectly shaped volcanoes, the lush vegetation and animals are really magic! We loved the family cottage, the infinity pool and the kids entertainment, as well as the interesting discussions with the owner.... More

Another perfect weekend at the mystical Sleeping Warrior camp, named after a Masai legend. I can't believe how lucky I am to have such a beautiful place a couple of hours out of busy Nairobi. The welcome from the perfect hosts, the view, and the resident hyraxes all mean I am looking forward to my next visit.

Great place to stay. Would recommend that you have a 4 wheel drive or a car with some clearance. You'll get in in a normal car but it does have a couple of tricky places to get through. The restaurant was a great place to just sit and relax and watch the animals at the watering hole. We stayed in... More

Really beautiful place. So much attention to detail from the warm cloth and juice when you arrive, from someone turning back your bed at night time. The people were so warm and friendly and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble and we all sat together and ate as friends with the owners. The food is fantastic and you get a... More

We went to spend our New years there. Got there on 31st and left on the 2nd. The view at the Lodge is spectacular to the least. There was a very loud group that came which kind of messed it a little for us but they only stayed one night... thankfully. New years was fun and we stayed up till... More

The game package was very good value and we enjoyed our Sundowner game drive, a bush breakfast and very satisfying afternoon game drive through the Soysambu conservancy. Tyhank you to Lawson and his... More

Our experience at the sleeping warrior camp was remarkable. The food was incredibly good, and the eating area was on a patio surveying a wide range of animals and plants. If you are a hiker, the sleeping warrior mountain is a great place to go, and the pool beside the lodge is very pleasant for those not so adventurous.

We stayed at the camp for Christmas and were not disappointed! We were in the 'guest house' which isn't a tent but we were very happy with the spacious rooms and the amazing view from the outside shower! We did not suffer from cold water as others have mentioned. The food was delicious, excellent breakfast (having lived in Africa for... More

It was my second stay in Sleeping Warrior Camp not the Sleeping Warrior Lodge which is around the corner. I have to say it has really run down and the rooms have not been renovated in the last two years. Showers funny without hot water. Very poor food without any variety. If you like talking managers who interupt your conversations... More

We had a wonderful time at sleeping warrior camp! We stayed in the eagles nest unit which has a breathtaking private view of the Sleeping Warrior Mountain and the valley. The room and bathroom were small but very comfortable and clean, and the food was good. Although less fancy than the lodge accommodations, the camp was simple and beautiful. I... More
