Set within the Kakamega Forest is Rondo Retreat; a tranquil homestead designed as a place of retreat and relaxation. It has evolved over time from a youth centre, to an orphanage and even the setting for the film ‘Kitchen Toto’. Within the retreat, the peaceful gardens are alive with different species of birds, butterflies flickering about. It offers an opportunity to those interested in hobbies such as a butterfly collection, beetle collector, and frog enthusiasts, spider hunters or bird watchers. At night you will be treated to the beautiful African Symphony. The homestead’s main house made of clapboard, charming English chintzes and soft furnishings exude an air of warmth and comfort from a bygone era. In addition there are five cottages in the same old style, whose proximity to the forest makes for ideal accommodation. There are fifteen en-suite double rooms within the retreat centre and three more double rooms that share a bathroom in the main house. No two rooms are designed or furnished in the same way. The bedrooms, sitting rooms and dining room have all been decorated and furnished with flair using things ‘old and new’ – antique prints and photographs, local paintings, crafts and fabrics. The sitting room is the perfect place for quite reading or after dinner conversation. The Retreat is not a typical hotel and owing to its Christian background does not serve alcohol nor allow any for smoking. However the meals are quite delicious. Category: Exclusive Guest House
