I had my mother-in-law to stay and we could only spare one night and wanted to get out of Nairobi so we decided to try Chui Lodge on the Moi South Lake Road, Naivasha. We came away having enjoyed our stay far more than we expected and can certainly recommend it. We left Rosslyn about 12.30 pm on a Saturday....

We arrived at the end of the South Lake Rd to find a beautifully hidden game reserve in the Great Rift Valley. After a short drive we arrived at Chui Lodge, an amazing pound in the front of the main building welcomed us to the wild. The main dining area is Masai inspired and the ant hill like fireplace was...

We went to Chui earlier this year and loved it. We went again and were very disappointed. It's gone downhill in only six months. First of all, the price is the same, $300/night full board at a resident rate - so you are still paying a premium. However you no longer get the service or value for your money: -...

Dear MrsJeff, We are extremely sorry that you did not enjoy your experience at Chui Lodge this weekend. Our accommodation rates have remained the same for the past three years despite a significant increase in input costs over that period. Rather than increase our rates we removed the inclusion of drinks in the package and reduced the accommodation rate by...

They take you to a personalised safari which concludes by a sun downer camp fire with drinks in midst...

Chui Lodge was amazing from start to finish! It has only a few lodges which overlook stunning views of African wildlife and landscapes. We were lucky enough to be one of only two couples staying there so the peace and quiet was wonderful! Chui has a relaxing swimming pool and exquisite lodges with baths, live fires and four poster beds...
