Are you looking for a quiet bush retreat, look no further! This rustic bush cottage is set in 150 acres of private land, nestled in the Malepo Hills, halfway between Nairobi and Namanga, just 8kms from the main road, this is a perfect get~away from Nairobi or as stop over to or from Amboseli National Park or Tanzania.
It is quintessentially quirky, extremely comfortable with the feeling of camping but with no need for the tents!
'Leave nothing but footprints' definitely applies to this property. This is a "bush" cottage in the true sense of the word, it is totally off~grid; with solar lighting, bucket showers and 'drop' loos.
Cooking is on gas, there is an outside fire pit perfect for sundowners and bbq's. There is no fridge so, you will need to bring cool boxes to keep fresh produce and drinks in.
We are very conscious of our environment, the wildlife, our neighbours and would like all our visitors to do the same. Once you book, we will give you a list of the 'Do's and Don't' of the place so that you can be a part of conserving this beautiful part of Kenya.
