I thought i would never say such for a place i won't have WiFi and sockets in the room. But if your plan is to get a break from gadgets and the city .. this is the place to be. The cottages are spacious and beautiful, all you need is there if you are taking the self catering option buy...

Nice cottages, out of the way, lovely setting! There was poor signage however, so it was hard to find. We missed the turn because the sign on the main road was missing. Thankfully, a local helped us find it. We had dinner catered in our cottage and it was great! Only stayed one night. We did have some plumbing issues,...

Perfect place to stay if you need to get out of Nairobi for the weekend ....or for a night or two en-route. Loved the open fire place and being so close to the river. Perfect location and lots of things to do nearby.

Peaceful, character filled cottages in a beautiful location. Super clean rooms and friendly but discreet staff. Sounds of the river, monkeys and birds. Cozy cracking fire in the evenings. Lovely place to leave the world behind.

Perfect location - just a short drive to Nanyuki for all your amenities, Ol Pejeta for game drives and some great restaurants. Our cottage was near a stream so we had the sound of water which was so lovely and we bbq'd on the deck under the stars. A perfect escape from the chaos of Nairobi!

We've stayed at Colobus Cottages with family and friends a number of times. It's located in a peaceful and serene part of Nanyuki. Each cottage is strategically placed ensuring privacy. The river flows just below the cottages. Reasonably priced; there's the option of self-catered (all utensils are provided) or you can eat at the little restaurant which serves absolutely delicious...

The cottages are unique and cozy and the hosts and staff are super friendly. We stayed with our two toddlers which was a little exciting at times as the verandahs look out over the steep Burguret valley! With tactical placement of chairs and tables we had no troubles though. I love sleeping there in the cool mountain air with the...

A beautiful location, very peaceful and perfect for couples, families or a group of friends. The staff are always very helpful and will assist with anything you need. Great that it has a self catering option, but it is also great that you can eat in the restaurant. Food from the restaurant is superb and always such good choice and...

We loved our recent stay at Colobus Cottages - the cottage was quirky and cosy, with everything we needed as a family of four ( parents and two young teenagers). We especially enjoyed sitting out on the decked verandah in the sun surrounded by trees, the air filled with the rushing sound of the river just below us. We could...
