My husband and I stayed at Margpher Guest House before we connected our flight to go on Safari to Maasai Mara. The staff at Margpher House were great. The place was very clean and the food was really good. It was definetely worth it.

I stayed at Margpher House as an exchange student from the US. My stay was actually 6 months. It felt like a home away from home. Everyone was really nice and put so much effort into ensuring my stay was comfortable. They have a really good chef who prepared delicious meals. I was sad to leave Nairobi, especially the new friends I had made at Margpher Guest House. After graduation I plan to visit again and bring my friends.

I just want to say "Thank you" so much to the staff at Margpher Guest House. I arrived in Nairobi on April 3rd from the UK. I was very exhausted after an 8 hour flight, but Margpher House arranged for my pickup from the airport and welcomed me very warmly. Thank you so much for the hospitality you showed me when I was there.
