My husband and I recently returned from a wonderful adventure in Africa organized by Goway Travel. One portion of our journey included a 14 day safari through Kenya and Tanzania. Throughout the 14 days we moved from one lodge to the next every 2-3 days. One of the lodges arranged for us in Kenya was the Malewa Wildlife Lodge. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Peter (a young man who reminded me so much of our son) who would serve as our host for the next 2 days. We were surprised to learn that we were to be the only guests at the facility during our stay but were totally amazed at the incredible treatment we received. Each day that we were there Peter took us for afternoon walks and provided us with a wealth of information about the abundant flora and fauna found in the reserve. The dining staff went to great lengths to provide us with exceptional service and wonderful food. The staff spared no effort to provide us with everything we could want or need and took great care of our safety and comfort.
The setting was beautiful, the accommodations were great and the staff were exceptional!
Truly a place well worth visiting!

Room Tip: I expect they are all great!

we, too, were "gate1ers" who spent one night at the malewa. i will second what has been said previously by other reviewers. they have a great staff and funky architecture. the rooms are adequate and the bathroom huge. we never did find the hot water in the shower and managed to flood the bathroom while looking for it. needless to say, the cold water shower was invigorating. our nature walk was interesting and the night game drive was also.

What a wonderful Eco lodge. I won't repeat everything said in the other reviews, but I agree with with what they said. The staff was great, the activities informative and fun. The cottages were roomy, basic but nicely appointed. I commend Gate1 for finding this gem.

Tripadvisor has this listed in Nairobi, however it is actually near Gilgil which is several hours away. It is a very nice lodge, the staff is awesome and it only has 10 cabins so it will never be crowded. We did a night game drive and saw all kind of different animals EVEN a Leopard, which is a very rare sight. We really enjoyed our say and I highly recommend this place!

A beautiful and peaceful lodge that is well off any main highway. The accommodations were clean and comfortable, with the hot water bottles in the beds at night. The staff were welcoming. Our guide was knowledgeable about the plant life as well as animal life. The food was great. This is the place for anyone who really wants to get away from city life and become one with nature. Animals seen- zebra, nubuck, wart hogs, giraffes, hyena and one that I had not heard of before- a dick dick.
