Petra treated us like family from the moment we arrived. My husband and I and 3 kids (ages 8,11, 14) loved our stay in the beautiful, Eco-friendly Chui cottage. Her guests were from all over the world and we ate amazing meals together and played games by the fire afterwards. She arranged personal tours of Aberderes and Solio ranch with... More

Following a recommendation we stayed for 2 nights in one of the self-catering cottages with views of Mount Kenya in the front and the Aberdares behind. The circular banda was beautifully constructed and furnished inside, with a nice veranda to watch the comings and goings on the farm. Petra was a lovely host and we wished we could have stayed...

My husband daughter and I only had one night at Sandai, but wish we had planned for a longer stay. We were the only guests, had a lovely cottage and had our meals with Petra, which made it even more special. Peaceful, beautiful, nice staff and great dogs.

My partner and I went to Sandai for a weekend away from Nairobi. It was incredibly calm, peaceful and beautiful. We stayed in the Zawadi self-catering cottage (but arranged dinner at the lodge one night - convenient to have both options). We woke up each morning with a perfect view of the peaks of Mt Kenya just outside our window.... More

Every few years I spend several weeks in Nyeri and always try to spend a week-end or 2 at Sandai. Being there is perfect bliss. I always stay in one of the original rooms and spend hours sitting on my little porch enjoying the peace and beauty and, in the mornings, drinking coffee and nibbling on biscuits. The food is...

We lived in Kenya and loved this place. Petra is amazing and the place is amazing. Her advice is truly valuable and she knows where and when to be here or there. Although we knew what we wanted to do we listened and learned a lot from her years of living there. The food and accommodations were amazing. Her son... More

We stayed here 2 nights. It was like you was family to them. Eating all together that's what you don't expect but was so nice. The lunch was not what I like so they made me a separate one and asked me what I wanted at the dinner and that for both days. So friendly. When we came home from... More

Relax, enjoy and feel at home! I can highly recommand an excursion to Solio to watch both Black and White Rhino in an amazing landscape. Experience a guided horseback safari meeting Zebras, giraffes and antelopes. Don't forget to have a look in the gift shop.

I've been here twice, and both times Petra has simply outdone herself with hospitality. She goes above and beyond to make sure that you feel absolutely at home in the lodge, providing massive quantities of treats, caffeinated beverages, toys, games, and nature guides in English and German. The rooms are very private and utterly gorgeous. I stayed in the self-catered... More

We went twice at Sandai and we loved it! We keep talking about it to all our friends and they are as enthusiastic as us after they went there. Petra is such a wonderful lady and her farm is a paradise: organic garden, bird watching, etc. The breakfast is unforgettable. You can seat on big couches in the living room... More
