I stayed here for a night with my family. The rooms were cosy and the food excellent. Our evening walks around the lawns were therapeutic. The swimming pool in the morning was a perfect exercise for the morning. I'd recommend it for anyone who wants a relaxing weekend.

This was a wonderful location to hold a workshop. The conference facilities were excellent. The restaurant was outstanding and what a beautiful place to relax and play at the end of the day. The boat trip is a "must do", it is essentially a water safari, you will see birds and animals on land and water. the guide was very... More

When I visited Sawela Lodges I was desperately in need of some time away from the city to just rest and reflect.Somewhere easily accessible and not too far from Nairobi. Sawela was perfect! Our room was spacious and the bed was very comfy with crisp clean sheets; biggest plus: the room had a bath tub!! I loved waking up to... More
