I loved this place sooo much! Its a pity we were there for only one night. So quiet, excellent food and service from all the staff. I really cannot single out any of them for special mention as they all made our stay so pleasant. The rooms were very clean and the hot water bottles were a gem given the... More

This property in Kenya is real cool and calm place to stay. Ideal for family and honeymooners. We stayed in room 11 and the tent was great. The sundowner at the cliff overlooking lake elementiata was splendid. The setup of the bar and restaurant was great. Not much of wildlife. Meldred, the restaurant steward was very good at her job....

There's not much I need to say except that I loved my stay here! Great food, great service, beautiful scenery, amazing rooms....all of it is amazing. I would definitely recommend it! Just go, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. And for those who love horses and wildlife, the horse riding around the lake was quite spectacular.

The strong hearted can enjoyed the night game-drives that offer a unique opportunity to spot nocturnal creatures including the curious-looking aardvark and elusive leopard but of course being Me, I opted to keep it safe where I can see my animals in full day light. Being cryophobic, I opted for Room service dinner instead of the Atmospheric bush dinner on... More

Another Serena Group Gem.... a new addition to their hotel chain.... Fantastic Location... great rooms.... Extremely tranquil.... great food.... outstanding Service.... Smiles all the way.... I would rate this as one of the best camps in the Rift Valley.... not much game to see it's just purely for a nice break away from it all......

Amazing place with amazing views. The rooms/tents were very spacious. The food was really good and the service was really good. I would highly recommend it, and wish to go back soon. The breakfast by the lake was an amazing experience.

This is an amazing place to visit, The customer service is excellent. We especially loved the great ambiance and the fact that it is just about 2 hours drive from Nairobi. This is a perfect place to go and relax. However a bit cold especially at night so please carry warm clothing.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were clean well serviced even had water bottles to keep the blanket warm. The meals were incredible too, from the presentation to the variety to the service. We loved the seclusion, i think any couple will enjoy their time here. Wish we had the time to take the nature...
