Stayed here on the last leg of a safari package, not quite to the same standard as the Amboseli Sopa, however, rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped. Bathroom window didn't have glass in the top panel just mesh which was a bit concerning as wildlife including monkeys randomly wander around the park. Security will escort you to your room... More

Maybe the problem was we had just come from the Sopa Lake Naivasha Lodge, which was incredible. This was a nice lodge in a rather secluded area near the Amboseli National Park. Except for Sami, the Masai greeter, who was great, the overall check in process was not as welcoming as Lake Naivasha. The accomodations are unique in that the... More

This is another nice lodge in the Sopa group, ignore the roads in and once there enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. Laid out with twisting paths to bungalows, monkeys and animals popping thru. Lovely dining room, great food - with an amazing fireplace & artwork. Local crafts sold on site, pool which we didnt get to use at cooler time of... More

Having come from Lake Naivasha which is part of the same chain I came with high expectations. Unfortunately they died very quickly. The room is pretty standard, no tea making facilities, very dark unless the curtains are open but when getting changed this isn't an option as it looks out onto the pathway. We came on a honeymoon which they... More

Beautiful place with friendly staff near Amboseli park. Free wifi in all places including rooms was a positive point. The quality of food is average. The rooms are clean though the furniture are some what old. Overall we liked the place.

Quite a big lodge and so it is quite nice thats its big enough to take some nice walks just around the lodge. The pool was clean (unlike other lodges we went to in kenya) and a good temperature. You stay in huts which were very spacious and quaint. Wifi reached our room (not at all hours) and also we... More

A wonderful friendly place to stay just outside the Amboseli National park where you can choose to go on Safari or enjoy the stunning views from Hemingway's bar and Resturant. A must to go back to. The food and service is excellent and you can drop in or stay in their very comfortable Cotages.
