“Great Koroga ! And not too far from town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2012

Osoita Lodge is just before Rongai town ( the same road that takes you to Rolf's, Nazarene University & Masai Lodge, which has since been tarmacked :-)) It will be on your left where the road takes a slight dip.

The food is great and they are famous for their "Koroga" They provided the raw ingredients (chicken, fish or mutton, plus the spices and stuff) and you do your own cooking (You will need to call them a day earlier if you are going with this option.

They have bandas that can sit about 8-10 people comfortably in their very serene gardens, time just flew !

When we went they were redoing their rooms and had no live in guests, but gave us a tour anyway. The rooms by the pool were much better. Though in my opinion a wee bit over priced (They are asking for about Kes 5,000 - 7,000 PP,) They offer discounted rates for groups. You can call and discuss.

They have a swimming pool, well, more of a dipping pool as there is a huge sign saying "No Diving' :-) From its location, i think its only for residents.

Room Tip: I liked room number 1 :-) Take a look at the pictures

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Osoita Lodge is named after the Maasai word 'Soito' meaning 'Stones'. Osoita Lodge was designed and built by the owners themselves and that personalized touch is evident all across the lodge. All raw materials used in construction and furniture were extracted from the very ground where Osoita Lodge stands today. Osoita Lodge is located in Ongata Rongai, (also locally known as Rongai or simply 'Rongaa'). Rongai falls in the Olekassasi township which is a settlement in Kenya's Kajiado County, located between the Kaputiei plains and the Western slopes of the Ngong hills. Osoita is conveniently adjacent to the Nairobi National Park plus close to other major tourist attractions around Nairobi. Osoita's design is based on a traditional setup but with a modern twist. The lodge sports makuti thatching and makes use of traditional building materials and beautiful rustic furniture that brings out an authentic African touch. The lodge is setup within a tranquil, lush green environment with the seasonal River Kandisi running at the very edge of the lodge. A picturesque, rugged typography with a cool, homely feel characterizes the surrounding and ambience at Osoita Lodge. Osoita Lodge has a total of 27 rooms. 8 Balcony rooms on the upper level overlook the swimming pool and 11 standard rooms all built with natural materials bringing out a rough, rustic exterior, whilst the interior finish is cozy and contains all the modern comforts you might need. In August 2014, we also opened our newest wing with 8 new rooms that stay true to the spirit of Osoita by fusing tradition with modernity. All our rooms are equipped with private bathrooms and toilets en-suite, digital safes, reading lamps, mosquito nets and free, strong WiFi Internet. ... more   less
