Osoita Lodge is just before Rongai town ( the same road that takes you to Rolf's,
Nazarene University & Masai Lodge, which has since been tarmacked :
It will be on your left where the road takes a slight dip.
The food is great and they are famous for their "Koroga" They provided the raw ingredients (chicken, fish or mutton, plus the spices and stuff) and you do your own cooking
(You will need to call them a day earlier if you are going with this option.
They have bandas that can sit about 8-10 people comfortably in their very serene gardens, time just flew !
When we went they were redoing their rooms and had no live in guests, but gave us a tour anyway.
The rooms by the pool were much better. Though in my opinion
a wee bit over priced (They are asking for about Kes 5,000 - 7,000 PP,) They
offer discounted rates for groups. You can call and discuss.
They have a swimming pool, well, more of a dipping pool as there is a huge sign saying "No Diving' :-) From its location, i think its only for residents.
The restaurant is very nicely designed. The food is Kenyan
indian, with nice curries and nyama choma (roast goat). Prices are very fair
for the quality.
There is also a small hotel with a plunge pool. The rooms are basic and clean, and fairly priced by Nairobi standards. Traffic jams to both Nairobi airports can be bad however.
Access to Nairobi National Park is however only a few minutes.
The staff is extremely helpful, and will make your stay really pleasant, whether it is for a meal or for overnight stay.
