We stayed at Chui for two nights in September following a camping trip in the Mara. Our very quirky cottage had a comfortable sitting room with a roaring log fire, a massive bathroom (much welcomed after river water showers and long drop toilets in the Mara!) and a very comfortable bedroom area with a huge and comfortable bed.
The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly and exceptionally hospitable. The food was excellent and way beyond anything we had been led to expect at a lodge - the chef really is very good! It was wonderful to eat our lunch in the company of giraffes and warthogs who could be observed very clearly at the artificial water holes that have been created just beyond the reserve fence
The guides were professional and helpful and took a huge amount of time to make sure we saw a leopard up close and personal! We also particularly enjoyed walking around the lake early in the morning amongst the giraffes, zebras and flamingos - all rounded off with a truly memorable lakeside breakfast.
