After traveling up a long path off the main road, appeared a well manicured, beautiful oasis waiting to welcome us. We had arrived at the Manor! We began our welcome with a warm greeting from the delightful and informative Roddy along with a much needed glass of lemonade. Roddy gave a great tour of the property and its history. The... More

We stayed mid-safari for two nights at the Manor, and it was exquisite. While we traveled with our three young adult/older teen children, my husband and I happily had our own cottage. The rooms are especially pretty and romantic with sweeping views of the adjoining coffee plant laden hills, interior and exterior fireplaces, an enormous bathroom with claw foot tub... More
