“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

Mukima is set in such stunning and peaceful surroundings. Waking up to the view of Mt Kenya every morning is something I will never forget. The rooms are incredible comfortable and the staff extremely friendly. I went with a large group of friends and it catered for all our needs. Whether you decide to stay within Mukima or adventure outside for horse riding, game drives and sundowners, it really is a magical place to be. I highly recommend.

What a Great place to stay,we arrived to a warm welcome by the staff on the terrace. The rooms are beautifully decorated each with its own taste and feel and wonderful views of Mt.Kenya, the lush lawn and the tropical gardens. Meals were delicious and the chef catered for the allergies of one in our party perfectly.The staff are extremely helpful,discreet and catered to all requests. There is lots to do with at the house,swimming pool, tennis court,table tennis,lovely walk and bird watching. The weekend went by too fast and we so look forward to our return visit soon.Great place to stay!!!

Our 3 day getaway was just too perfect for words. Our vegetarian family of 12 were catered for and pampered through and through. It's a beautiful place to visit and the staff is just too amazing. They did not mind our taking over the kitchen for certain dishes which they were only too willing to learn. We would recommend it as a 5 star place for anyone who wants to visit.

This is a really great place to stay - a beautiful location and house with access to all the top game and mountain locations as well as being near to Nanyuki town for shopping and access to good shopping , bank and health facilities if needed.
Very good food and kind support from discreet staff who really are there to help but not intrude in any way
Lovely walks and good bird watching with some game on the small conservancy

Room Tip: Rooms at front give spectacular views of Mount Kenya early in the morning especially

This house is a fantastic place to go for a weekend or more with friends or family or to hold an event.

When you book the place, your group gets the entire house, and it is staffed and catered and everything is taken care of. The staff were superb and made the stay both relaxing and enjoyable. A special mention of Elizabeth, who was our main interface to the staff - she was friendly and professional and ensured we never lacked anything and our requests were handled quickly and even out of the ordinary requests were handled without issue. She knew everyone's names within the first few minutes, and we were made to feel at home by all the staff. We had a vegan with us, and the chef and staff did not miss a beat to ensure these special needs were handled in satisfactory and tasty way.

You can bring your own wine with no "corkage" fee, and the extras such as drinks and massages are charged at extremely reasonable rates (most reasonable we've seen in Kenya).

Everything was easy, from the booking and payment, to the stay and activities. One of the best places in Kenya to go as a group. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are great - choose based on whether you want a big tub or a shower... but since the whole...

We had such a wonderful time at Mukima House. The staff were very warm and friendly and also very helpful. The house itself is beautiful and the rooms are spacious and comfortable with the most incredible views. The food was also delicious and we really enjoyed every aspect of our trip. It is a great place to take children and an amazing experience for them. I highly recommend it and thank you to all the staff that looked after us!
