We spent 2 nights at Kiangazi House with our 2 kids aged 7 and 11. It was an excellent experience compounded by Chris ,our guide for the game drives ,managing to show us the the solitary resident male lion in the Oserian reserve . The highlight of the trip was the sundowners they served around a campfire within the reserve. It was an almost spiritual experience to watch the herds of game on the plain with the mountains in the background as dusk set in while sipping a decent glass of red.
The food served at all meals was excellent. The Chef discussed what we would like to eat at dinner just after we completed lunch. He made kid friendly meals like spaghetti for our younger one while we had more elaborate 4 course meals.
The staff was very friendly and efficient. The house itself has a very relaxed feel and dollops of colonial charm .We'll definitely be going back for a longer stay soon.
If you are visiting with kids I would recommend that you take the garden rooms which are slightly apart from the main house and have attached verandas with a great view
