"A pleasant surprise"
The rooms were spotless and beautifully furnished, though we were disappointed not to have hot water. The staff were distressed to hear this, and quick to instigate repairs." See all these reviews: 12n in Kenya
"Marsabit Lodge in Paradise"
Rono (the manager) & his staff worked really hard to look after us and made us most welcome. The location is beautiful - indeed Paradise Lake is well named - and one of the staff took on the role of ad hoc guide which he performed really well.
Don't go expecting 5 star comfort but to stay there in such magnificent surroundings is one of the great experiences of life and one not to be missed." See all these reviews: 11n in Kenya; 5n in Tanzania
