Karibuni Lodge
Reviewed February 11, 2010

Very welcoming, especially to a scared solo girl traveller. Staff went out of their way to help me out. Food was incredible. Easy access to town. Lovely comfortable grounds, common areas and bedrooms. Clean and safe and great value for money. Good place to link up with other travellers.

how to describe Karibuni - if you are looking for a swish hotel, air-con and jacketed waiters, then look elsewhere. If however, you seek wonderful food, friendly service, a wealth of local knowledge and terrific value set in the lush Kenyan countryside, then this is the place. Check our their site - www.karibunikitale.com/ - it gives you the real flavour of this wonderful hostelry. We would recommend to anyone.

I was attending a reunion in Kitale in October 2008 and was booked in to the Karibuni Lodge for a couple of nights by the organiser of the reunion since the Kitale Club was fully booked. The Club would have been the better option. Nevertheless the Lodge was adequate. Clean, but room was extremely basic, shower and basin were outside and the toilets basic. This lodge occupies what used to be a white settlers house in the better part of Kitale suburbs. Breakfast was served on the veranda of the main house. Early morning sounds of birds and view over the Cherangani mountains was just great and what Kenya is all about. The lodge is run by a very pleasant couple, which makes this experience that much nicer. Apart from the lodge and the Kitale Club there are no other places in Kitale town that I would prefer to stay at.
