When looking for a weekend break, the most sought after place are those that offer total peace of mind…
Kembu cottages and campsite are located on a large 900 acre farm where one can enjoy the freedom to go on long walks, relax or pursue any one of the many activities offered by Kembu. This wonderful high altitude climate means there is no malaria. Crisp clean air and ample space makes for an ideal family sojourn where young children can help feed horses, calves and chickens and burn up all their pent up energy.
Acacia Cottage is perfect for a couple wanting to get away for the weekend and enjoy the tranquility of a country lifestyle. This romantic relaxing retreat is set aside under the largest Acacia lahai in Kenya.
The Yellow Room is ideal for those people who want to escape the impersonal feel of a large hotel and enjoy a home from home after a busy day on the road. We can adapt to your agenda with flexible meal times.
Albizia Cottage, built during the late twenties, has been restored back to a unique but affordable self-catering holiday home. A well-equipped kitchen, a lounge with a cozy fireplace and a spacious verandah (great in the morning sunshine) make for a homely setting. You have the option of full catering on a per person basis.
Beryl's Cottage is a quaint cozy hideaway, a ten minute drive away from Kembu. It was built in 1918 for the impossible daughter of Charles Clutterbuck. Beryl Markham grew up to be a fanatical aviator who was the first person to fly across the Atlantic Ocean against the prevailing winds and is the author of several books.
The Tree House is up in a huge beaugonvillia, and suits those who enjoy the informal nature of the campsite. Appreciate the elevated view from the luxury of your double bed or private veranda.
