As soon as you cross the sway bridge from the parking lot and cross the gorge to the main restaurant/boutique hotel you feel you are a world away. We went with a small group of people from work for lunch and fun. We played Paint ball - they have a good field, and equipment was reasonable. Kes 1,000 pp. Other... More

Rolf's is a great place to do brunch or a lazy lunch on the weekends. It has one of the most unique locations as it is near Nairobi National Park and features a long rope bridge that carries you over a creek complete with baboons and other wildlife. The food was also good and the portions were very generous. We... More

I came across this place by chance. The road to rolfs place is dusty, but don't judge a book by its cover. Once you get there, there is a crazy bridge(scared of heights), that you must cross to get to the restaurant. That is an experience in itself. For the faint hearted, there are nearby steps that can be used... More

Went there recently & the service was not good. My food order came first without the fries (had to wait for these to be prepared) and my friend had to wait for almost 10 minutes for her order to arrive. We had to share a steak knife since they had run out of them.... seriously! I asked for a doggie... More

My husband and I decided to go for lunch to Rolf's place after hearing all the hype about it, when we got there, the staff seemed to be all over the place and disorganised. After settling down and having our drinks we ordered food, when it arrived, our beef carpaccio was not very good. It looked like it was old,... More

Sweet Place. There is no mentioning a list of places that you can relax and enjoy yourself as a Kenyan would without mentioning Rolf’s Place. Built on the side of a cliff, and only accessible by a roped bridge over a deep gorge, Rolf’s Place is as breathtaking as the stars on a clear night. The service is impeccable and... More

A small restaurant nestled in mountainous terrain overlooking a narrow valley and connected by monkey bridge. The place is a sweet getaway spot for those looking to go far from the madding Nairobi traffic. The place offers a neat place to play football or paintball.

The paintballing experience here was so much fun. There is also an open field for playing soccer or any other game you want to. The accommodation too was awesome. I like the idea of crossing the hanging bridge to get to the place.
