We arrived via train and were picked up by Geoffrey who was our guide and driver for the few days we were there. The lodge is only about half an hour drive from the station, plus a stop to buy park passes. Geoffrey was a lovely man and a really great guide. We were traveling with an 18month old, so not your usual safari goers, but he was happy to adapt itineraries to suit.
The lodge itself is beautiful with amazing views. We had connecting rooms which were stylish and comfortable. We didn’t have a direct view of the water hole, but still had elephants opposite our room one night! The food was great, the veranda bar was a lovely place to sit and have a drink, and the staff were all so accommodating and friendly. We even managed a little time by the pool, which was a treat!
I was slightly concerned about taking my young child on safari, but the staff at Kilaguni made it a wonderful experience for all of us. She got so much attention from them all, loved running around the lodge and playing in the pool. And she slept amazingly well in her car seat in the safari car, meaning we even got some quite good safari experiences!
I’d definitely recommend Kilaguni - thanks to everyone for helping make our trip to Kenya such a great one.
