Masking guests feel at home is our pleasure. Africa is a new experience for many guests so we see it as our role to create a comfortable, safe, homely environment. When we achieve that as well as organising tours and safaris to suit our guests we share the happiness. Very pleased and thank you for your response. More

this is an excellent starting point for exploring Kenya; especially since the owner Trevor is very knowledgeable and able to organize almost any safari experience you could possibly be looking for. Rooms are OK, but not entirely up to modern standards, especially the bathrooms. Location is rather problematic in a shabby area that can make you feel a bit insecure.... More

I am glad you enjoyed the meals and safari. We pride ourselves in looking after safari planning and management and the hospitality in the hotel. Unfortunately there has been construction work going on nearby but this is coming to an end and does not reflect upon security in the area. Modernisation of our rooms was delayed due to the problems... More

Kikuyu Lodge sent a driver to pick us, two females, in the pouring rain from Jomo Kenyatta airport. Plane was circling due to weather and landed late, but the driver waited for us to get off the plane, go through thermal body scan that measured our temperature one by one, buy visas, collect luggage.

We know that your holiday is a special time and genuinely want you to have the best experience of Kenya.
