We stayed there for some nights and enjoyed it a lot. It feels like being in a family far away from home. The food was excellent, the best we had on our trip. Petra is an excellent host, doing all she can to feel comfortable.

From time immemorial, Africa has inspired in travelers deep feelings of recognition and an inexplicable longing to return because Africa still has what the rest of the world has lost: roots, traditions, beauty, More untouched nature, rare animals and extraordinary people! And it is this side of Africa that will always attract those who are able to dream. Sandai Homestay and Cottages is located in the heart of Kenya close to Aberdares National Park, and here you can live and experience the real Africa in the midst of the beautiful native flora that frames my comfortable farm house and guest cottages.
