This accommodation is set on a working farm with gentle views across a verdant part of the Rift Valley, around a half hour's drive from the Lake Nakuru National Park. We stayed in Kenana Cottage which was clean, spacious and pleasantly furnished. Great breakfasts on the veranda. Hosts Andrew and Zoe were very welcoming and helpful. Food, which is served...

It is a beautiful place in beautiful landscapes! We stayed in the Acacia Cottage which is beautiful. Good food, friendly staff. The only drawback is that there is no WIFI althoug we did not really miss it since we had a local phone card

Great place to camp on green grass! The ablutions are clean, there is hot water and you can order fresh farm stuff in the morning which you will get in the afternoon. Staff is friendly and was very helpful towards us. Would definitely recommend.

We enjoyed our stay at Kembu very much! We travelled with 4 small kids and stayed in the Accacia Cottage! Really spacious and nice furnished setting, with everything one needs! Kitchen fully equipped with all you need for basic cooking. The owners welcomed us warmly and gave us a great start with inviting the kids to feed an orphaned Reedbuck...

Such a contrast to our home in Nairobi, Kembu cottages offers a wonderful time in the beautiful countryside as a relaxing retreat from the hussle and bustle of city life. Andrew and Zoe couldn't have been more hospitable and kind. We had a wonderful stay and are looking forward to going back again. The staff were wonderful and very helpful....

We chose a treehouse with a double bed and it's own bathroom. When we arrived the boda guys dropped us at the gate which was a good 15 min walk to the...

Customer service is terrible at Kembu! I wouldn't recommend this place at all! It rained hailstorms when we were there and we (3 adults and 9 kids) were told to 'wait it out'. No dry area available in sight, and we drove away looking for a place to sleep for the night, in the morning, no refund, credit was offered....

Kembu cottages is a little paradise just three hours from Nairobi, I stayed twice in eight days for a night at the beginning and end of my holiday and to be honest I would have been happy to spend my entire holiday here! Run by Zoe and Andrew this is a working farm where their beautiful cottages make you feel...

We booked to stay at Kembu cottages over the phone with the owner. On reaching the premise Patrick who was to check us in was busy with other guests and asked us to wait to be checked in by her Colleague Catherine which took so long, due to the price of breakfast we agreed to order from the snack menu....
