Sanctuary Farm

You are Here: › Sanctuary Farm

Sanctuary Farm in Naivasha is excellent place, very family oriented.

The bandas are very comfortable and the addition of the kitchen means that you can stay there on a self catering basis...

Great for a horse ride in the morning or a boat trip on Lake Naivasha to see hippos.

Guy and Julie are wonderful hosts...

Sanctuary Farm Naivasha Kenya is a sanctuary for the wild animals of the area and a treat for travellers, one of our top picks in Kenya and relatively unknown.

Reasons to go there: escape the canned tourist experience of lodges and tented camps; get out of your vehicle and wander the farm on foot or horse, viewing the herds of impala, zebra, wildebeast, waterbuck slipping under or over the fences; enjoy the relaxed, comfortable home stay with wonderful hospitality from Julie and Guy, and the very best food we had in Kenya (really, the only great food we had, despite what all the expensive lodges boast); all for good value.

For us the difference between the usual tourist lodging and Sanctuary Farm was immediately apparent when we arrived - to sit down immediately to tea and delicious cake on the veranda with Julie, Guy and a couple others, while three giraffe sauntered through the garden gate and started browsing the acacia right in front of us.

It just got better from there - great conversation, real warmth and personal attention to whatever we were interested in doing.

Really fabulous food (oh, the duck dinner!!) - everything fresh and homemade, including all the breads and jams and juices.

If I'd known how great it was going to be, I'd have booked us there for a week and used it as a base to go to Nakuru as well.

We are the first tourists to have taken them up on the opportunity to ride their beautiful, well schooled, CALM Thoroughbred horses into Hell's Gate National Park - can't recommend it enough.

WOW! Later that day we rode around the farm down the Lake Navaisha, where Julie had arranged us a boat ride around the lake and over to the famed island to walk among the wildlife (more great giraffe time there).

Great birdlife, hippos, knowledgeable guides. We highly recommend Sanctuary Farm - lovely people, lovely place, fantastic experience.

Won't miss it next time we're in Kenya.
