          A truly special place. You won't get the authenticity, warm welcome or closeness with nature at any other hotel in the region. Highlights were the visiting colobus monkeys, giraffe and zebra. A haven for them and for the guests.More

          How far is Elsamere from Nairobi, how long does it take to travel there and what is the best way to travel. I have 2 nights in Nairobi this Aug/ Sept 2016 but am thinking I might have to save Elsamere up for a return visit.

          It's around 2 to 2.5 hours tops. Best way is to get a hired car and a driver.
