"Lives up to the Desert Rose legend"
A beautiful location - not a wildlife destination but great to be in the midst of nature and with very good service from Mercy and the team. Lunch by the waterfall was very special." See all these reviews: 10n in Kenya
"Wonderfully Relaxing Stay"
The chef was wonderfully accommodating, and sent us off on Monday morning with the best packed lunch of the whole trip!
As there were no locks on doors, or safes in rooms, we would recommend that other visitors make sure that their money is secure." See all these reviews: 12n in Kenya
