Chui Lodge is well appointed in lovely gardens looking over a water hole satisfyingly filled, during our stay, with hordes of frolicsome buffalo. We found the rooms clean and comfortable and the food, on the whole, pretty good. The restaurant is eccentrically decorated and the winning floor show for us was a very badly behaved Vervet monkey that made off with our food at every opportunity - to the joy of the other punters! The staff were charming and the attention to detail impressive, down to the lovely bunch of roses we were given as we left. Oserian is truly beautiful in a Garden of Eden-ish sort of way - if not exactly Africa in the raw. Somehow a leopard tucking into a bit of meat that has been stapled to a tree by human hand doesn't seem to quite cut the mustard, though we much applaud Oserian's aim to act as a game corridor.
Chui is a great spot for a relaxing weekend out of Nairobi, and definitely a safe bet for the ageing relative. We would certainly go back for either of the above reasons. We very much enjoyed our stay.
