Just tell Trevor Kent what you want and he can design a personalized program for you that's lower in price and higher in quality than any of the tour companies can offer. And Hannah's cooking was fantastic! Not to mention that she unexpectedly did our laundry while we were out. The B&B itself is something of an island in the...

Very peaceful, welcoming and comfortable place in Kikuyu (just outside Central Nairobi). Trevor organised a 3 day safari in the Masai Mara for me and took all the hassle out of this, and the safari was great. I was given coffee and cake on arrival and made to feel very much at home by Hannah (one of the staff members)....

We recently spent one night at the Kikuyu Lodge before heading on safari in the Masai Mara. i chose this hotel for its location away from downtown Nairobi and that it is an easy starting point to head to the Mara.

We are always pleased when guests are happy with their stay and it was nice to meet and talk a while about their travels in Africa. Our location is improving with the construction of the new bye pass which will reduce traffic while improving our access to the airports. Your review was much appreciated

Trevor was able to organise my safari trip, accommodation and airport transfers for an extremely brief & last minute trip to Kenya. He did everything with 1 days notice, without missing a beat. I would have loved to spend more time with him discussing world politics and F1 racing =)

Nothing pleases my staff and I more than when a guests says that they thought of our hotel as their home whilst in Kenya. Safaris are wonderful but when you need to return to base you need somewhere relaxing and comfortable and that is our desire. Many thanks for your review.

I have stayed with Trevor and Hannah a couple times now, and each time it feels as though I am returning home.

“One thing to note is that the lodge is near a busy highway so there is some traffic noise (this didn't bother me as I'm from Sydney so used to it). There is a bypass being built at the moment so this will help alleviate this in the future.”
