Description: Kongoni Camp is situated less than 2 km North from Nanyuki Town off the Meru road. Set against the dramatic slopes of Mount Kenya, and nestled in indigenous forest with olive, cedar and relics of other tree species, Kongoni Camp has a peaceful energy about it. Tucked away in a tranquil surrounding, Kongoni is unique and rustic.Despite its proximity to town Kongoni is designed in a way that brings you closer to your environment by having you dine, have coffee or stay in a place surrounded by the wild, creating an attachment to the bush. The main building housing the bar& restaurant is laden with history. Originally built as a barn in the early 1960’s, it served as a storage for exclusive hunting safaris, and has been carefully restored maintaining its original character. Kongoni’s spacious facilities make it an ideal venue for big groups and smaller parties. Kongoni is situated in a picturesque landscape, and home to many bird species. At least 75 bird species can be found on the extensive grounds.

Very enjoyable breakfast - top quality. I remember particularly tasty mushrooms! Dinner was also good.

Ate there twice this trip. T'bone steak the first time and "double super burger" the second. The food is excellent and the portions generous but the wait for your meal is farcical. The knock on is a choice between having a starter (meaning that you are unlikely to finish your main) or not and staring hungrily as other meals are brought out during your half hour wait. The best solution seems to be to go for a shared plate of nachos just to keep you going.

But the food is worth the wait and reasonably priced for what you get. Sadly the drink is less reasonably priced so don't go there with a thirst!

I have been there on many occasions for the last three years and I must say that any time I have tried a different type of food, it turns up to be better than the last. The staff are efficient and friendly while Edwin - the owner is there to make sure everything flows as prescribed.

Loved the food. You have to try their chicken curry and salads

I didn't like the cocktails - I ordered a margaritas and it was served in a regular glass and the lemon tasted off I had a couple of sips and told the waitress it was off - they refused to refund me or give me another drink.
