The reception was impeccably special. We were well revived by front office staff led by Christine Muthoga and Irine Njai. Being with kids, they were jovial, hospitable and welcoming. My kids can’t get enough of them. Needless to say we were given a special discount that made me come back three days later! Thank you Sarova PanAfric, Thank You Christine and Irine Looking forward to coming back again

We stayed at the Sarova Panafric hotel multiple times during our vacation, using this as almost our home base to come back to between safaris! Everyone was absolutely amazing the entire staff made us feel like we were returning home when we would come back from our safaris! We walked down to the pool side one night and made comment that we may want to come back down and swim and have a drink (around 5pm). Something came up and we didnt go down tell around 9:30 and when we got down there the bar was about to close but they stayed open when they saw us. We stayed down for a couple hours and when about to leave they told us they kept the bar open for us, because they knew we wanted to come back down. The rooms were really nice as well, the beds were super comfortable. Room maintance was always kept up each day. All the rooms had working AC in them, and though we went in January and it was cold for the locals we were very thankful for this!
