We loved the African Heritage House. Furnished in antiques from Africa . Some featured in Out of Africa. Beautiful rooms with comfortable beds and views of the African plains. Woke up on the top floor huge room with views of plains and seeing wild animals roaming. Meals were served on different balconies at different meals and sometimes even at the pool house near the plains. Alan, our host was full of information about Africa and Kenya as he is always involved in opening museums and the like in Kenya. This hotel is an institution and Alan is known throughout Africa.
We were told it was an interesting hotel like a museum and that Alan was a character who is a great introduction to Kenya. He is up on almost everything going on around there. His staff was kind and very considerate. He also had a driver lined up for salaries and tours. This is not a Marriott. This is an African palace that is much more intimate and caters to people who are seeking special ,private and a unique experience. We loved it all. The pool was a treat. The meals were delicious . Please enjoy. He also caters destination weddings and parties of all sorts.
