This has to be the best place to stay in Nairobi. Serene, peaceful and soothing stay just 20 minute s out of the chaos of Nairobi. Within 15 minutes of the airport was in the middle of the African savanah - watching zebras, giraffes, ostriches and wild hogs as we drove through the Nairobi National Park to get to the lodge. The room given to me was on the ridge with a breathtaking view from the balcony and a bathtub overlooking the park....just awesome. The candlelight dinner was also perfect and, as I was fasting, the requested breakfast service at 5 am was on the dot. Overall , it was a perfect stay. Within a day of long flights and jet lag.....I feel reinvigorated and freshened up to take on the Nairobi chaos. Don't miss it if you come to Nairobi.
