          This is a great place to base your safari. Very relaxing but close to the action in the bush. Great pool overlooking the river with views into the distance. We saw elephants, monkeys, baboons, gazelle & even Maasi cows passing through. Great staff everywhere. Good...More

          This property is on a river where animals are constantly coming to drink or cool themselves. The pool was warmer than most, and the pool keeper kept your belongings safe from the monkeys that wanted to steal them.

          My brother Nigel Hobson built the original lodge. I understand that in the years before the flooding in 2010 a plaque was erected at the lodge in his memory. Can anyone tell me if this plaque was rescued from the floods and can now be seen on the new building? Thanks. Cherry Denison
