A true experience of luxury rustic living. The tree houses are a visual feast and you do feel as if you are alone in the bush despite being in a developed suburb. Excellent and detailed service with charming touches. Being from a city, it can feel a bit too "log cabin" isolated if alone and rattling around the tree house (size of a large 1 bed apartment).
The owner's 3 dogs are a nice addition as is the camp fire lit in the evening together with sundowners. Would recommend having dinner at Ngong House as the chef is very talented. I would return but only with a partner for company during the lonely stroll back to the tree house and to keep company when the hyrax (wild rabbit) screams in the night.
