Café
“This restaurant is a favourite with the British Army. It is close by, the food is always good and the prices are reasonable. There is an Indian chef solely for the curries which are excellent. There is also a Teppanyaki area and a Sushi menu”

Park
“Wow! a hidden Gem of a conservancy at a fraction of the price of Ol Pej. The landscape cannot be bettered and its wildlife thick, just a bit more wild than Ol Pejeta, so you MUST take a picnic. You can sit out of the car though down by the dam and enjoy the elephants watching you eating your lunch!”

“We often stop here for lunch on our way to or from Nanyuki - the restaurant is set in a huge fig tree with the trout 'pools' at the bottom - there is a little playground. The food menu is limited and service not that fast, but if you're not in a hurry it's a great place to stop.”

“Ngare Ndare Forest is a lush indigenous forest at the foothills of Mt. Kenya. Azure pools glisten at the bottom of waterfalls and 200 year old trees stretch into the canopy supporting a rich variety of bird and animal life. The forest is a vital corridor that links the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to Mount Kenya, and one which elephants have been using for centuries.”
