The view of menegai crater here is amazing, its on top of the cliff. Tents are becoming run down and there were no mosquito nets, the staff were wonderful with children. Food is standard safari camp food.

Our second stay, still delightful. Sour dough bread delicious. Need more wines though. Also they provide the best picnic hamper of any place I have stayed. Homemade soup was Excellent! Good selection of food, not the standard chicken leg and boiled egg!

We arrived on friday 12th Feb . It was late afternoon and we greeted with such warmth and welcome. We even had our lunch even though it was late for the chef but it was no problem . The tents are fully catered for your needs with toilet, electricity and clean towels and bedding. Sometimes the water did not heat... More

I was assigned Tent #8 which overlooks the crater as does Tent #10. Tent #8 is at the corner of the property and next to the fence, so I felt it was a bit less secure than other tents. It also had an “annex” with two single beds, so would be perfect for a family. Unfortunately there were problems with... More

I was given a last minute R&R break and wanted to find a peaceful place to rest, and Maili Saba was perfect! The property is stunning with its views of the crater from every terrace. What really stands out though is the staff, who are the most friendly I've experienced in my many years of living and traveling in East... More

Stayed at maili Saba to attend my daughters wedding nearby. A more perfect setting you couldn't find overlooking the crater. The staff were so wonderful and caring to us, even singing my daughter from her camp to the wedding cars, placing mats all the way up the hill so her dress would remain clean. Great service, beautiful food and kind... More

I've stayed at Maili Saba a number of times. Sometimes I have passed through and spent the day there eating, drinking and sunbathing; other times I've stayed overnight. The surroundings are stunning - the crater lake is gorgeous, the surrounding area is quiet. It's a perfect place for hiking and watching the sun set and rise. The staff is lovely.... More

It was a great experience mostly aided by the View of the crater and extremely helpful staff. Also a point to note is that the place is actually a trust which shares its income with a foundation helping students for higher studies. Food was average because we were vegetarians :) but the chef made it a point to gut us... More

We checked in on the 24th of December 2014. The reception was fantastic. We were served with welcome drinks then later ushered to our rooms. We needed to take a shower so as to shake off the sweat and dust. This was were our nightmare began. No hot water running from the taps. We were advised to let it run... More
