Why not try Sweetwaters - Ol Pejeta? It's a conservancy and they also have a chimp sanctuary. Tented camp, very nice and fab views, food etc. It's really lovely there, I enjoyed it thoroughly. Try the link below

im guessing you have made your plans - but if not, you could try naivasha.

its about 2 hour drive away ...

see this place which has been highly recommended and is very beautiful...


may i add that traffic on a friday in nairobi is hellish so please be prepared, and its end month so everyone who owns a car in the city will be on the road..

in addition we had a city fire yesterday which caused panic and roads were blocked off causing huge traffic delays so the general atmosphere is still very tense. i hope it will be better by tomorrow so staying out of the city would be a good idea!
