My husband I stayed here for 2 nights when we first got into Nairobi. We stayed here because it was close to the David Sheldrick Widlife Trust. I am so glad that we got to stay here and experience such peacefulness. There were not very many other people on the property other than me and my husband. The rooms and...

Stepping onto the compound of Nyati Hill Cottages is a bit like stepping into a smurf village! The thatched cabins are enchanting, the grounds are well cared for and everything looks neat and beautifully maintained. The compound was very quiet, when we visited, and it looks out onto Nairobi National Park. You can spot the wildlife in the distance! The...

Our family of six stayed at Nyati Hill Cottages over four nights. We stayed in two bedroom cottages (Lion and Giraffe) and also had a kitchen cottage (Elephant) to use for meals and family time. The cottages are beautifully fitted out with a bedroom, toilet and shower room. They are extremely comfortable. The outlook is superb - over the gardens...

If you're seeking some quiet after a long vacation come to this place . The cottages are designed nicely . The national park is your view . We saw some rhinos and giraffes. You'll find what u need for breakfast in the fridge plus a bottle of wine and water . U can still order lunch or dinner from outside.

We stayed for 3 nights at Nyati Hill cottages - the accommodation is really great - really clean and well equipped and in an idyllic setting. The cottages overlook the national park and we really enjoyed spotting wildlife from the terrace including some giraffe and buffalo right outside the front gate! I'd thoroughly recommend for anyone wanting a 'wilder' stay...

Thirty minutes from the city gets to a magical corner next to the Nairobi national park. From the privacy of your cottage you can scan the horizon, watching zebra,antelope, ostrich, giraffe and even rhino. Wonderful early morning and at dusk. Perfect location if you are visiting the Sheldrick trust elephant sanctuary. The cottages (you have two each- one for sleeping...

We spent two lovely weeks in Kenya and stayed at Nyati Hill Cottages all the time except when we were in Masai Mara on safari. We wanted both adventure and relaxation on our first trip to Africa and Nyati Hill provided the perfect setting for both. The hotel is very comfortable with a nice pool and tasteful rooms and very...
