We had the most amazing time at Hogmead, especially after such a long safari throughout Kenya. My husband and I have had the privilege to of been able to travel extensively across the world, and I must say that there is no place like Hogmead.
We were exhausted from the constant on-the-move holiday that just sitting at the Bar, watching the sun set behind the Ngong Hills and enjoying the Warthogs company was pure bliss.
The management and staff were beyond fantastic, always looking after us and making us feel more than at home! What a delight it was being welcomed into such a beautiful and relaxing 'home'. The food was to die for, as if we didn't eat enough during our safari! But we certainly couldn't pass on what they served us.
Hogmead was a great transition back to the 'city life' - but I can tell you that it is far from being a city hotel! It boarders a Giraffe Sanctuary, and the hotel garden is HUGE! You hear lions at night from the National Park not far away, and there are the most amazing species of birds that live in the garden.
Is is a must to stay here in Nairobi, its certainly the best part of the city!
