We spent four nights at Sanctuary Farm with our seven year old son and we could not have asked for a better holiday. We stayed in the converted stable block, which was very comfortable and within a stone's throw of the pool, which we took advantage of. Wildlife is abundant and two highlights were the boat trip and horse riding...

We stays here for 3 nights with the kids and had a great time. The children had freedom to explore and they loved the pool. We could relax, lie in the hammock, chill out completely. Boat ride was great. Food was excellent!!! Will be coming back for those amazing salads!!! Thank you Sanctuary Farm - will be back!!!

Calm, spacious, teeming with (apart from the monkey that stole the sugar bowl!) well behaved animals. Perfect for a few quiet family days. Food splendid, wonderful service, very friendly. And did I mention the space?

When I first arrived, I had no idea the extent of this AMAZING nature preserve! On my morning run I ran amongst giraffe, antelope, monkeys, zebra, and water buck! Great accommodations and the view in every direction is distractingly beautiful. Additionally, everyone I interacted with was simply amazing. Thanks Sanctuary Farm!

Sanctuary Farm has everything you could want on a weekend get away to Naivasha. The wildlife- its everywhere, and you can see the natural roaming patterns and habits of the animals of south lake as they are free to foam as they feel. The food- Julie and her staff at the clubhouse can NOT be beat. Every meal is fresh,...

Sanctuary Farm is a beautiful, peaceful and wonderfully preserved place. Zebras, wildebeest, giraffe, water buck, antelope and countless other animals roam the fields. Birds sing in the trees and if you are lucky you will spot a baby giraffe on an evening stroll. The horseback riding is excellent and makes you feel like you are one of the animals. The...

The land is beautiful--many acres with all sorts of wildlife, from giraffes eating from trees outside your room to hyaenas you can see during night drives. It's also a great place to socialize with a big group of friends on the weekends.

Sanctuary farm is not a resort, but rather it is a small and charming location for a quiet getaway. Our room was beautifully appointed (with fantastic hot shower) looking onto a grove of trees and grazing impalas, zebras, wildebeest and giraffes (and frolicking monkeys). The quadrangle of rooms are converted stables and it is a short walk to a modest...
