Best places to stay in Kenya
Like many popular safari countries in Africa, Kenya offers a high standard of guest accommodation, from comfortable to very luxurious. The country boasts a wealth of open-air, sophisticated canvas-style tented camps reminiscent of classic 1920’s style luxury or Moroccan elegance. These include spacious guest tents with fans or air conditioning, ensuite bathrooms, outdoor decks or even private plunge pools. However most importantly of all is location – for the best game viewing experience. We offer a portfolio of hand-picked safari camps and lodges which offer exclusivity, good guiding and good game. We also have a select range of boutique country and city hotels. Quite unique is the renowned Giraffe Manor, a grand manor house built in 1932 in the Nairobi suburb of Karen.
