I had a garden wedding at the grounds, a reception at the same venue and slept there the same night. Well manicured lawns, great discounted rates and delicious food for my guests. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The staff are very professional and very accommodating. I would recommend it to any couple looking for a wedding venue.

Arriving late into Jomo Kenyatta airport, Karen Country Lodge is ideal to stay in if you want to be on that side of Nairobi. The traffic in Nairobi is extremely busy so to make the journey at night is a lot less stressful. The Lodge is secure, clean and comfortable.
