The house is good for nature lovers, couples, solo adventurers, business travelers and families and is available for short and long stays. We have a dining area and a well equipped kitchen for self-catering (you can prepare own meals) or use our professional in-house chef at a small fee. The five rooms – Care, Comfort, Content, Co-existence and Natural are themed on the five animal freedoms. The home provides a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi. Nestled in a pristine, native forest, intentionally preserved as it naturally existed before development. We have two friendly dogs and three cats that live within the compound. Our chef and Housekeeper also live within the compound and are available when you need them.More
