          This was a fantastic place to stay in Kenya in Nairobi National Park. Every need was catered to from the time we landed, to our safari and visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Meals were excellent as well.

          You are practically in downtown Nairobi and the bush, at the same time. Built in 2012 and managed by Anthony Childs (who really knows about Kenya). I was only there one day, but got some of my best photos of wildlife at this location.

          We are looking at a 3 night break. Is this long enough? Does the lodge offer transfers from the airport? How long were the safari drives? How many hours? Were there opportunities for toilet breaks? Many thanks. B
