From attentive staff to nice accommodation to monkeys jumping on the roof, it is a very nice place. It is very well located for Giraffe Manor and Elephant Orphanage, not so for downtown Nairobi (or Wilson Airport). It was our first place in Africa and...More
The folks who work there are so friendly and accommodating. They brought us coffee down to “the cottage” in the morning and had drinks there for us while we sat around in the afternoon and evening. The “cottage” was perfect for the five of us....More

I loved this hotel, actually a bed and breakfast. It was the first place I stayed at the beginning of my safari adventure in Kenya. Grant, the owner could not have been more gracious. The rooms are charming, as is all of this great old...More

I arrived into NBO at night and it was about 10pm when we headed to Macushla House. I was met by drivers from the tour company. It is quite a drive from the airport (40 minutes) but in the dark seems longer. Also, on arrival to the house, there was an area power outage which made it really dark. The drivers were familiar with the area, but the roads were hard to choose. But they found it in the pitch blackness. When we pulled up, a woman from the house happily greeted us with a lantern and took me to my room (which was totally dark so she left the lantern). It was good enough to take a quick shower and unpack a few things until morning. You're very close to the orphanage. I'm sure they can get a driver for you. The company I was working with sent someone for me, my guide, who spent the day taking me to Nakumatt, public ellie visits, Kazuri, Utmanduni Crafts, back to the adoptive parent elephant time, then back to Macushla. Hopes this helps.
