We stayed here during the holidays. 3 different families; 11 people and 2 babies. Each of us loved this hotel, and we had an amazing time as a family.
The lobby is nicely laid out with the lounge area facing where the animals gather. The wifi didn't always work but it didn't really matter. The restaurant staff were great. The babies didn't sit still and each one of them was so friendly with the babies. They remembered their names and what they needed each time.
The rooms look like other tented camps I have been but I still loved them. They provide cribs for babies as well. Shower pressure was good. Water temp was good. Hot water bottles at night in the rooms were perfect. Fyi - no mosquito nets and there are a few mosquitoes. i was bit at night but not my husband.
The grounds were great for kids too. We had four plus the two babies. They had plenty of space to play ball and run around.
Wonderful view of Mt. Kenya. Great animal viewing. Pretty good food. Nice staff. I found this place to be a piece of heaven and I would love to return.
