I've been going to Kongoni camp since its inception almost 10 years ago. I have seen it grow from a simple establishment that was originally in an old barn to this magnificent place that is a 'must go to' place when visiting Nanyuki. From the gardens to the pool area, the dining room to the coffee shop, the lounge and... More

Great place to grab dinner while in Nanyuki. Sampled their Indian and Italian foods and it was amazing. That combined with the interior decor provides for a great night

We went for a Valentine's Dinner and were very happily surprised. The tables had been beautifully decorated with flowers and rose petals in heart shapes. There was a very yummy Valentines Dinner Special but we stuck to the normal menu, as we know it well and knew what we wanted to eat. Everything was good - delicious and good sized... More

Had a very pleasant evening here recently. Delicious food, eaten at the bar for convenience (football on tv) Very attentive barstaff/waitstaff. Lovely, interesting premises. Well worth a visit.

A friendly team run this nice hotel amid the bush just outside Nanyuki, along the road from the British army base (officers seem to come along to use the pool). The food's not bad, the rooms are simple but fine and if it wasn't for the dogs which seem to start barking at 5am you'd get a great night's sleep.

I stayed three times at Kongoni camp, twice for the Lewa marathon and last time befre travelling on to Loisaba conservancy. Nice cosy rooms, good value for money and a very nice restaurant with friendly staff. From here you can access a large number of conservancies or the Mount Kenya national park easily and Nairobi is just three hours away... More

Food is excellent so is their fully stocked bar with any drink you can dream off. The accommodation however is dated and old fashioned.

One of the best hotels for family and the food is not only one of the best in Kenya (for western food) that tastes exactly the way it should but served by staff that are there for you.

Have been a few times - dinner and the tepanyaki grill. Service can be slow (depending on how busy they are) however the food is always very good. The tepanyaki was very nice but perhaps a bit too much seafood for my liking. The samosas and pork ribs are tasty! Good beer selection too.

Description
Kongoni Camp is situated less than 2 km North from Nanyuki Town off the Meru road. Set against the dramatic slopes of Mount Kenya, and nestled in indigenous forest with olive, cedar and relics of other tree species, Kongoni Camp has a peaceful energy about it. Tucked away in a tranquil surrounding, Kongoni is unique and rustic.Despite its proximity to town Kongoni is designed in a way that brings you closer to your environment by having you dine, have coffee or stay in a place surrounded by the wild, creating an attachment to the bush. The main building housing the bar& restaurant is laden with history. Originally built as a barn in the early 1960’s, it served as a storage for exclusive hunting safaris, and has been carefully restored maintaining its original character. Kongoni’s spacious facilities make it an ideal venue for big groups and smaller parties. Kongoni is situated in a picturesque landscape, and home to many bird species. At least 75 bird species can be found on the extensive grounds.
