I stayed here for 6 nights and don't have any complaints! They accommodated me perfectly since I literally showed up on the spot having never heard of the place and didn't have a reservation. I stayed in a room that had a queen bed and a full bed and it was exactly what I was looking for. Quiet, peaceful, CLEAN,... More

Traveling with a youth mission group and we stayed at the Karibuni Lodge for a couple of nights while in Kitale. Theresa and her team did a terrific job taking care of us. We received a heartfelt welcome upon arrival before dividing up into our individual cabins. It's not plush, but certainly rustic, inviting and memorable. There's a nice range... More

10 of us visited Karibuni Lodge in 2012 before and after our work with churches, schools and an orphanage in the Bungoma County. Just four of us this year, stayed for three nights after our work and it was as good as ever, Theresa, Ibrahim and Elvis, (not to mention the children!) looking after us very well. I had the... More

I can't even put into words how wonderful the staff made us feel during our stay. Everyone was so kind and helpful! They were truly wonderful, would definitely go back to Karibuni lodge again. I felt safe, secure, clean and fed! The food was unbelievable! We cleaned off our plates every night!

For my first time going to Kenya, Karibuni lodge was the best place to stay during my journey. Our group stayed there for two weeks during a humanitarian trip. The beds are very comfy and the cleaning staff keep the rooms very well kept. The showers are wonderful especially the outdoor charcoal heated ones. Ibrahim is an amazing chef and... More

The Karibuni Lodge is a great place to stay in Kitale, Kenya. It is a hidden oasis with wonderful homemade meals and a quiet garden for relaxing. The owners are great - Teresa and Abraham - and very accommodating. The showers have hot water, and there are group houses available. Animal lovers will also be happy to meet the four... More

Wow! What a pleasure staying there! We arrived late in the evening, but the food was still ready and warm on the table for us. Such a pleasant welcome! We stayed there for a few days, and were completely free to do whatever we wanted. The rooms were exactly what you need, the breakfast is served on a beautiful veranda... More

Provided you are not after touristic luxury this place is wow! It is quiet, comfortable, clean, well run and provides good food and ultra friendly advice. It provides a lovely mix of African and Western as the proprietor Theresa is English, married to Kenyan chef Ibrahim. If that that sounds contradictory don't worry it works really well. The Lodge is... More

Karibuni Lodge is like staying with friends, Theresa and Ibrahim, with Elvis and the crew just make you comfortable in surroundings which allow real relaxation after a busy day working. Cancel dinner because of a late lunch - no bother - would you like a some bread and cheese, a sausage or two? Washing gets done quickly - a bit... More

As a group of clergy and teachers we spent different amounts of time at the lodge while travelling and working in Kenya. We stayed 1 night at the beginning of the visit and 2 at the end. The Lodge is the most relaxing place to stay and Theresa, Ibrahim and Elvis provide fantastic service - nothing is too much trouble.... More
