Favorite Kenya Lodges, Hotels & Camps


A collection of my Favorite Kenya Lodges!

Looking for something different than the usual 'straight forward' accommodations? Something that will make your stay in Kenya just that extra little bit more memorable and Special?

You are at the right place!

Kenya offers many different options; you can go very basic and simply pitch your own tent, or do it IN STYLE with a high-end 5 star hotel & spa.

Your choices between tenting and 5-star resorts are really incredible vast and numerous.

For general suggestions please go to Kenya Hotel Directory!

HERE, on this page, I will tell you ALL about the places that stand out and are destined to not wanting you to leave! In short, my FAVORITE Kenya Lodges!!

Sometimes, you just have to treat yourself!!

It will include:

  • Spectacular Resorts, Lodges & Hotels in awe-inspiring surroundings
  • Fabulous Eco-Lodges
  • Tucked away Tented Camps with luxury tents & just the right amount of comfort & tranquility. Trust me, you will NOT have to rough it at those places!!

Note: Being very conscious about the impact on the environment, I research places that claim to be Eco or Eco-friendly.

It's no surprise - Not all of them REALLY are!

So, it's good to look around a bit and pick the one's that come the closest to keeping the human 'footprint' to a minimum, especially in places like the Maasai Mara.

This will be all about my most Favorite Kenya Lodges, with personal recommendations, reader's reviews and suggestions.
