Enjoying a fish lunch here either tilapia or trout.The setup is a great mind where they farm fish and let you sample direct from the source. An ideal stopover on your way to Samburu for lunch.It's pocket friendly.

Great place that you would never expect to dine. In a tree house. The grounds are lush with vegetation and floral and your able to pet Monkeys... that is if they like you.

Feels like coming back home, always worthwhile. Excellent service and even better food. Trout wasn't on the menu due to low stock caused by last years drought but the tilapia fillet was amazeballs.
