We were on a two week self drive safari. Trevor's contacts in sorting a 4X4, his local knowledge, and willingness to help, with everything from loaning us spare fuel cans, tools, and his personal Sat' Nav', to advice on routes, made our holiday in Kenya the best to date.
Staying at the Kikuyu Lodge Hotel is not the sterile, insulating experience of the usual large hotels in downtown Nairobi. It feels part of the local community of Magana; about 20 mins from the city centre. You will hear some noise from the local community, be that traffic, goats, chickens or children playing, but the payback is feeling that you are actually in Kenya, not some "corporate managed" hotel environment.
We stayed three nights at the beginning of our trip, and two at the end. We were made to feel very welcome, meal times arranged to suit us, Trevor's friendly company during evening meals, and Hannah's ever cheerful presence to make us laugh.
Highly recommended if you want to feel part of Kenya, and why would you come to Kenya and not want to be!!
