After a grueling flight from the US, we were welcomed into Alan's beautiful home with open arms! The house itself is full of interesting African art and it is a delight to just soak it all in. Alan gave us a tour of the house and it is amazing just to imagine the life he has lived. The staff is always eager to please and prepared us a lovely brunch upon our arrival to eat out on the veranda that overlooks Nairobi National Park. Our first five minutes out there we saw an ostrich, some giraffe and some gazelles grazing in the distance. Our only regret was that we did not have enough time to enjoy it more.....we only spent one night before heading out on our safari. The evening meal was so delicious and we ate out on the veranda and watched the sunset....it was a lovely evening with Alan who is a gracious host. If you want an experience above and beyond any place you have stayed before, book here. You will be making a memory that will last a lifetime!
