There is a separate sitting out area area/ coffee terrace under the trees and own access to the pool. The cottages are particularly well suited to a family with children and grandparents or taken with the main house, which would attract a discount. More

It was a very relaxing stay. The surroundings are very quiet. Out of the way and beautiful views. Beware that the dogs are active but do calm down and are friendly.

About the neighbourhood
Green Park is pivotal to a range of day trips and amenities. Apart from the 18 Hole championship course 5 minutes from the house, and our own pool and tennis court, the area is renown for its bird and wild life. Lake Navaisha is 3 miles below the house, and a muram road circumnavigates the Lake, which is about a 3 hours drive. There are a number of day trips you can do from boating to see the pelicans and hippos, enjoying the giraffes and plain's game at Crater Lake over lunch on a small floating restaurant, to Elsemere House, the home of Joy Adamson or a trip around Hells Gate National Park to see the wild life. There are also several private conservation parks, which are well worth a visit. Navaisha, 40 mins away, has the usual african curio shops and a large supermarket. Nakuru Na...
How to get there
Lahai is on the north coast of Lake Navaisha about 1.5 hours drive or 20 mins by air from Nairobi. It sits on the north side of the spectacular Rift Valley at about 7,000 ft. The Owner can recommend car/safari vehicle hire, although for cost and peace of mind, it is recommended to take a driver, which is often less than self drive, who also acts as a guide. He can stay in the staff quarters at Lahai. Such a vehicle is not expensive. There are four airlines that fly direct from Europe, BA , Virgin, Air France and KLM. There are numerous routes with stopovers and usually a little cheaper. It is always better to try and arrive in Kenya in the morning, so that you can get up country in the day. Night time arrivals would necessitate an overnight stay in Nairobi. Safarilink have a once ...
