    Hi can you please confirm that this hotel is not suitable for children under 8, it is included in the safari we are in the process of booking, where tour is suitable for children aged 4+. Our youngest will be 6 (7 two weeks after stay) will thus be a problem? Also do you do night time safari, as this is an optional extra, but I haven't seen mention of it in the reviews. Thanks

    Hi, I wanna visit the place sometime before Dec. but really hating the idea of driving for six hours to get there (from Nairobi). Is the lounge accessible through public means or would I need to catch a cab from Voi (and the estimated cost if possible)? Thank you.

    Thank you very much Willie for the information. Much appreciated. Is taking a cab the only public means to access the lounge?
