Sandai Homestay and Cottages is located close to Aberdares National Park neighbouring Solio Game Reserve and faces Mt. Kenya with its snow capped peaks. Despite its altitude of 2000 m above sea level, the climate is mild and dry. The homestead consists of a farmhouse and two guest houses with four rooms, each with shower/bath tap and toilet. There are two more guestrooms in the main house sharing a shower and toilet. The kitchen and dining room is in the farmhouse while the living room is equipped with an open fireplace. Guests usually share the delicious food with the small family of Petra Allmendinger, the farm owner. Enjoy game drives in the neighboring Solio game reserve or Ol Pejeta Conservancy, bush walks and exciting horse riding excursions that can also include a visit to the local Mau Mau caves where the Kenyan freedom fighters used to hide. Petra can also take you on a sight seeing flights in a light aeroplane. (Driving times: Sandai-Solio Ranch & Aberdare National Park: 25-50 mins; Sandai-Ol Pejeta Conservancy: 1.5 – 2.5 hours)

Absolutely charming in a lovely location but it was rather cold and dark, and lacking in hot water, due to weather and the fact there is no electricity apart from a few hours each evening

Pleasant host and comfortable rooms - the weather didn't help as the cloud was down and it was cold at times. In warmer weather would be much nicer
