We arrive at the Safaria Park after a long flight from NY via London. We were part of a 22 person tour group with Smartours. The hotel is on the outskirts of Nairobi so if you want to see the city; this is not the place to stay. We were greeted warmly with wet towels and fruit juice. We were given our room assignments and the porters whisked us and our bags to our room. The rooms were nice; we were in the 500 building--quiet. The room was clean; it had the typical amenities and the beds were comfortable. The grounds are really beautiful and a great place for a walk. The food was typical for a tour group; buffet for breakfast had a good variety including a omelett bar and we could eat all the fruits and vegetables without fear of illness. The dinner we had the next night was just like at the Carnivore Restaurant--all types of meat on skewers (goat, camel, crocodile, beef, chicken, lamb etc.) and a variety of side dishes--exotic but all right. We were also treated to a great show. We also spent one night here again on our way to Tanzania. This time dinner was on our own and we tried the Italian restaurant at the hotel. It was absolutely awesome. It is owned by a expat Italian who we watched make the pasta for the night. Fabulous meal at a very reasonable price. Also the shops at the back of the hotel had the best prices on souvenirs. They have an impressive variety of goods and will baragain on the price. Much better prices than the curio shops we stopped at during our safari in Kenya. All in all it is a nice hotel.
