We've been around 10 times, and always bring out of town guests when we have the chance now. Restaurant: The lunch is excellent, heaping with fresh seasonal vegetarian dishes, mostly Ottolenghi style salads and veggies. Personally, my favourite lunch in Kenya. Dinner is also excellent, and a bit more intimate as it's not a buffet. More warm dishes that suit...

The KES 2,500 buffet lunch had one single warm dish which was non-veg: despite us having booked for vegetarians too. The rest three salads and two starters. Very disappointing considering the price tag. All options were tasty, though. Some may enjoy the view but I personally found it very sleepy and tepid: basically overlooking a big lawn with some wildebeests...

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The rooms are quite large. Ours contained 2 queen seize beds. The beds were OK but not super comfortable. Maybe the matrasses could be renewed? The rooms itself were nicely decorated and there's an outside sitting area where you can view the wildlife that roams around the sanctuary. The...

This is a great location with great accommodation in converted old stables. You feel as if you are in the wilderness. Animals are free to roam around and for example we woke up one morning with a Giraffe on our patio. Loads of monkeys, zebras, giraffes to be seen. Also really worth taking the boat tour on the lake to...

A very beautiful lake, full of wildlife, highly recommended for bird watching, but also with hipos, giraffes, wildebeest and zebras. We slept in nice safari tents near the lake and in the middle of the animals.

What a beautiful place!!! We spent a weekend there in June. Accomodation is arranged in a rebuilt stable and the rooms are very nice. Each room has a small porch with a nice view including giraffes, gazelles, buffaloes, zebras and wildebeast. It is possible to take a ride around the properties as well. Half board includes a lovely breakfast on...

A viewing tower cum restaurant gives one the chance to sip on a coffee (or something stronger ) and watch animals go by. There are zebra, wildebeest and water buck a-plenty and so the odd giraffe and buffalo wandering by if you are lucky. It's a good place to unwind after a morning in the gorges of Hells Gate.

Best Day Trip Ever = Sanctuary Farm We were in Nairobi on business and only had one day to ourselves. We bee-lined to Naivasha for a Horse-Back Riding Safari, and easily found Sanctuary Farm. I didn’t realize Sanctuary Farm was, indeed, a working farm and not “just” a safe haven for wild animals. I ended up reliving childhood memories of...

After a long drive around the south lake and looking at all the accommodation available we kept going back to the idea of staying at sanctuary farm. And we waited until some guests checked out at the end of the day and eventually got some rooms, to say that this place is a little heaven is understating it! It's one...

We have converted a stable yard into ten beautifully and originally designed contemporary rooms. Two small twin rooms with an interconnecting door, three small double bed rooms, three large triple rooms each with a kingsize bed and a single bed, two triple rooms each with two queen size beds and a single bed.
