I have now stayed here 3 times and have brought my 2 pets twice. I have a very large dog and a very small one. There is a dog here and they all get on so well together. Penguin House is small, quiet and very comfortable. The staff are super attentive and the food is really good. Nothing is a problem at Penguin House. It is a Joy.

This camp has its own watering hole!

Reviewed By CarrieReadsALot

This was our third camp of five on our safari adventure. At this point, we knew what to expect and were excited to get a look at a more northern location than the previous camps were were at. This was where we also very much appreciated that the staff puts warm water bottles in the bed to keep you nice and toasty as it got a little chilly here. We got to do a lot of exciting tourist-y things on top of the game drives including a visit to the equator, local chimp sanctuary, and visit with the local blind rhino. This was where we saw our first cheetah of the trip I believe, which was extra exciting for us. Accommodations, food, and staff were wonderful as it had been at all the other camps. A benefit to booking this all from the same company was a consistency that cannot be undersold. The communication between camps was really amazing and we got to see them handle some rebooking that a family had to do last minute. Amazing how well things were handled from start to finish of our time there.

AMAZING PLACE

Reviewed By 962sakinak

We had an awesome time at Mount Kenya Regency. It is right next to Ngare Ndare Forest. We could view the majestic Mt. Kenya and the forest from our bedroom balconies. The facilities were superb and staff was very friendly. The scenery is breathtaking and we get one with nature there. I would definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to visiting it again myself.

Hidden Gem in Nanyuki

This is a hidden gem near Nanyuki. The owners and staff couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. We stayed in the two bedroom tent and it was incredible. Beautifully decorated. Super comfortable. Great fireplace. Bathtubs looking out to the forest. Such a good place to base yourself for exploring the region. We will definitely be back soon.

We have a large swimming pool available for our guests to use at no extra charge.

Cozy for 1 or 2 nights

Reviewed By Asim S

We stayed in Bramble for one night on the way back from Laikipia to break our journey to Nairobi. The huts are built in a well thought layout with each having its own private space. Bathrooms are outside so I expected it to be freezing when going after sunset - I was pleasantly surprised at how warm it stayed. The huts are cozy for a night or two but space is limited. Kitchenette has everything you need (except a sink). The mattress and linens felt old. The noise from the main road kept me awake at night. Outdoor furniture was missing cushions so not really useable. It helps that the neighbouring restaurant was extremely flexible and stayed open a little longer than normal and also opened earlier than normal the next day to accommodate our schedule and dietary requests.

Storms Resort & Campsite

A home a way from home gateway, Surrounded by natural vegetation. Exceptional views of mount kenya. Storms resort is 16 km out of Nanyuki town (on the Nanyuki - Doldol road). Neighboring the Ol-pejeta conservancy, Lolldaiga Farm house and Mount Kenya. The main lodge is located on the banks of the Nanyuki river and hosts both indoor and outdoor restaurants and bars. We have plenty of activities such as mountain biking, hiking, bird watching etc.

Nightmare

Reviewed By autosolvautocare

Where do I even begin?! The rooms were filthy, there was no seating provision in the rooms, the water heaters wouldn't work, the chef decided to take leave and we couldn't get a decent bite to eat. We were served with a "meal" we did not order and that too was revolting (had to give it away to the guards without even having a taste) and to add a cherry to the cake, we were forced to have breakfast even when we clearly stated we needed to leave in a rush. Beware, the shining reviews on this place seen properly fabricated as the place is NOTHING like it is made out to be! Horrid... if I could give it negative stars, I totally would!

Comfortable Stay with lovely food

Reviewed By manishsapna

We loved the place. I went with my wife and 2 kids. Breathtaking views of Mt Kenya. Rooms were very nice. Food was amazing with lot of vegetarian options as well. The hosts Zahra & Bashir were very friendly and accomodating. The best part is the Ngare Ndare Forest Trust is 5 minutes away by car. The blue pools and the forest trails was mind blowing. Will definitely visit again.
