This really is a special place! In the heart of the Nairobi National Park there is the prospect of seeing all kinds of wildlife around the facility, including a resident hippo ironically named "Tinker". For those of a nervous disposition do not fear, rangers and Masai are on hand (and in number) at all times of day and night. The hotel itself is glorious. As you drop down into the valley you're greeted with the main building behind which are the villas, decorating the southern hillside. In the middle of the valley is a small swimming pool and flatland occupied, quite often, by monkeys and baboons. Keep your villa doors shut! A wise word of warning from the owners on arrival. Turning to the owners (Anton and Emma) they and their staff will do everything and more to ensure your stay is first class. The food is top quality, the villas are sizeable, modern and spotless and there is no set routine to adhere to, everything happens when you want it to. That includes a cheeky game drive or two in one of their vehicles. Truly a wonderful and beautiful place run by professional and friendly people. Well worth a visit!
