After a three hour delay in Gatwick and a tiring flight and transfer we arrived at the Baobab to fresh face towels and a warm greeting and told to go to the buffet and have some lunch while our bags waited with the porters. After booking a standard room we were given a superior bungalow which was nice but we...

We returned for a week and were delighted to be greeted like members of the family by the staff - who remembered us by name. They again made our stay perfect. This year the archery was up and running twice a day with tuition. The step/aerobics/stretching classes were also even better led than last year. Our glass bottom boat and...

We stayed at the resort for 10 days at the beginning of November. The airport in Mombasa is not air conditioned so bear this in mind, and wear really light clothing. We purchased our visa's in the UK, but this saved no time in the airport, we still had to wait ages to clear customs.The coach trip to the resort...

Baobab, oh how I love thee, let me count the ways. I'm a miserable traveler. I travel for a living and don't particularly enjoy it. So when I go on holiday with my family (active boys, 2 and 4 years old) I want it to be stress free. And by a good holiday, i mean- good food, good bed, good...

Having read reviews here, we booked this hotel with an upgrade to a superior room in the Maridadi wing. So we were looking forward to seeing in flesh how good it was. Upon arrival, after a long flight followed by a near 2 hour transfer, we were welcomed with cold towels and a cool drink which was very welcome. A...

We were in the Maridadi wing and had a ground floor room 2002.Little disappointed that the "sea view" we had paid for,was a distant glimpse thru the trees and over the Maridadi pools and restaurants, but the room itself was extremely comfortable with a huge bathroom.

We spent ten days in this lovely resort as part of our three-week holiday in Kenya this October for myself, my partner and his parents both in their late 60s.
