I was travelling alone and found the place too quiet (I was the only guest the three nights I stayed there). But could realise it's rather convenient for families or groups looking for a base camp for a weekend or a whole week.
The main attractions of the region are nature (hiking rather than animals) and culture (pokot villages and towns).
If you are already in Kenya, you may want to call John at the reception office: 0702267252.
See my pros and cons summary below:
- Lovely place to stay, beautiful location and surroundings.
- Basic needs of safety, bed, good food, electricity and cold water covered at reasonable prices.
- Well-informed staff, ready to advise, compensating the lack of proper tourism information in Kenya and in this region particularly.
- Acceptance of payment in USD, GBP and EUR, a part from Kenyan shillings.
- No WiFi available.
- No signal for Telkom cards, and little signal for Safaricom cards.
- Transportation from and to the centre must be arranged and paid by the user, no regular matatu or bike service in the centre.
- No extra material provided for any activity: no sports material (balls or rackets), no projector, no musical instruments.More
