My wife and I have just rtd from The Baobab Resort and both agree it is probably the best holiday we have had. Considering we have stayed at some of the best rated hotels in Mexico, Cuba and across the Carribean this is well earned. We stayed at Kole Kole wing and the rooms are splendid. Cleaned twice a day,...

My boyfriend and I stayed here end of July begining of August and we loved every second. We stayed in the Maradadi wing; rooms were lovely and had everything we would need and also cleaned every day.

From the Safari to the accommodation - a truly amazing experience! We don't usually take this sort of holiday, but it was the only way for us to go on Safari! The Safari was amazing (only the rhino didn't "play ball"!), and where the hotel fell down on organisation, the staff made up for it with their cheerfulness and hospitality!...

My sister and I took our families to Kenya for a 2-week holiday and stayed at the Baobab beach resort. Our kids are between 7 and 13 years and we spent many hours online looking for a hotel that was entertaining and safe to our kids. Our search ended after reading great positive reviews about this Hotel. We booked two...

Stayed here for two nights and did not regret it a bit. The rooms were nice, but you won't spend much time in them. The three pools are fantastic; the service is excellent; and the grounds are very nice. My only complaint is that the beer is not up to Tusker standards.

We had a wonderful honeymoon in the Baobab. There was a huge selection of delicious food and very clean throughout the resort. The staff were always so friendly and happy to help. There are three large pools to choose from and lots of activities to get involved in if you wish. We would strongly recommend it.
