Just under 200 kms from Nairobi, located in Nyeri County is a large estate called Sandai Farm. The biggest influencing factor for me is that they have self-catering cottages, but you can also do a full board booking and eat, drink and make merry with other guests in and around the main farm house.
I booked the Chui Cottage, one of two that sleeps up to 6 guests. We had asked for a grill and found it already set up…..of course we forgot to carry charcoal but a member of staff immediately offered to help us get some. The cottage had 3 comfortable bed rooms, a kitchen, bathroom, a cozy living room with a fireplace and an outdoor seating area.
In addition to the self catering cottages, there is a campsite for those wishing to immerse themselves in nature, while the main Farm house also has guest rooms.
The property is really lovely, spacious and you really get that ‘out in the natures’ feel. The main house is a nice pace to hang out, have a few drinks and socialize with different guests. There is also a ping pong table!
I was very happy with my experience and definitely plan to visit again. The owner is a also very welcoming and responds to inquiries and bookings efficiently.
