I have lived in the area for a while (about one year) and have been anxiously waiting for the restaurant at Ngari hill to open ever since I first stumbled upon this lodge on the hill on a weekend hike. It was well worth the wait; Rudolph, the owner and manager is welcoming and an informative host, and has opted for quality over quantity at his lodge and restaurant. I went for a Saturday lunch with a friend, arriving dusty and hot after climbing up to the top of the hill from the center of Maralal town. Staff were waiting, and directed us to a lovely patio overlooking Maralal and the rolling plains and vegetation. This is where you can really see the result of the hard work that Rudolph and his team have put in over the years; 15 years ago the area had no trees and hardly any bush and now the hilltop is covered with a variety of hardwoods that offer cool shade and a refreshing change. Had a selection of lovely wines, a delicious (and homemade) lasagna, and creative dessert. Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting either to stay the night, or even just to enjoy a slow-paced western-style meal in a relaxed and inviting environment.
