Stayed here for two nights and did not regret it a bit. The rooms were nice, but you won't spend much time in them. The three pools are fantastic; the service is excellent; and the grounds are very nice. My only complaint is that the beer is not up to Tusker standards.

We had a wonderful honeymoon in the Baobab. There was a huge selection of delicious food and very clean throughout the resort. The staff were always so friendly and happy to help. There are three large pools to choose from and lots of activities to get involved in if you wish. We would strongly recommend it.

Went to Kenya as a group of four to celebrate two of my friend’s birthdays that coincide. It was our first time in Kenya and we were really enchanted.
