We needed a quiet place near the centre of Nairobi for a rest after the long flights and to attend to some pre safari commitments such as buying supplies and other matters.
We chanced upon this place and were not disappointed. Booking by Email was straightforward and the Airport meet and greet worked well despite the early hour.
We arrived way ahead of official check in time but they did their best to make us comfortable until the room/tents were ready.
A very well managed place and very accommodating. Food was excellent and Beer supplies seemed inexhaustable. There was a good supermarket within walking distance for our Safari supplies although we used a car to pick up the bulk of this.
There is a 'resident' car driver available and we booked him for the day for all the errands.
Our tents were large enough and extrmely comfortable. It was like being on Safari already without the bumpy roads.
Definitely one to return to although there is news that they are building another place a bit further out.
