Alan Donovan's African arts and crafts collection is legendary and to be able to actually stay at his unique house and live amongst these treasures is an out of this world experience!
His personal tour, with stories of his past exploits is amazing and his staff are very friendly and prepare great meals.
The best time is early evening sitting on one of the West facing terraces with a sun downer, the sun setting over the Ngong Hills and the wild animals clearly visible in the Nairobi National Park.
This is a homestay not to be missed!!!
