Forty years ago Eldoret was a charming small town. Now it seems to be so big and so busy that I don't really recognise anywhere so the hotels I used to like (Waggon Wheel etc.) have changed. Naiberi was recommended to us by Teresa at 'TA Tours and Travel' and we thought we'd give it a go. Teresa is never wrong.
We went top end but you can camp and I think there is a bunkhouse as well. The main bar/lounge/dining room is terrific. They have taken a huge area and put a roof over it. Inside there are little bridges to walk across to split the bar from the dining room etc. So much space. Big fire at night. The food is very good and we had a group of 16 all ordering different things.
It seems Bill Gates has stayed there and the rumour was that the same was true of 'Brad and Angelina'. Of course they may have heard the same about me.
The rooms are very comfortable indeed and so are the bathrooms.
The only reason I've not given it five stars is because we weren't there long enough (one night, moving on the next day) to check out the birdlife which is another reason for it being built. I suspect though that one more night and it would get its five stars. One tip is to go to the bottom right corner of the garden and get a position to see the stream. There is a Malachite Kingfisher living just on the other side. I was only able to have a quick scout around before breakfast but I think I just scratched the surface in terms of birdlife.
