Ol Bobongi’s cinema has a large flat-screen TV with Netflix and literally hundreds of DVD movies for all ages to choose from. In total, 800 square metres / 8000 square feet – meaning there is lots of space and privacy for guests to relax and enjoy themselves.
The house and property are beyond belief, especially arriving after a long, dusty day on safari. We were astounded and I got a lot of brownie points for my choice! It’s huge, beautifully appointed, and has so much to offer. One could easily make a weekend of just staying at the house! Not that one would, what with all the wildlife to be seen in the area. Francesca, the chef was also very kind and on point with her general help. We highly recommend this place and will be back.
Ol-Bobongi is incredible – elegant, comfortable, magnificently decorated, thoughtfully organized and breathtakingly beautiful! Literally every detail was perfect, from the bouquets of roses left in the master bedroom and front hall, the delicious and ample breakfasts, the wonderful cooking of the kind and caring staff, the polite, affectionate and well-behaved pets, and, most of all, the tranquillity and beauty of the surroundings. The house’s gorgeous wrap-around veranda looks out over gardens lush with flowers – so much fragrant lavender! – up to Mount Kenya. The bathtub in the master bath is exquisite, and there is an entire film screening room with hundreds and hundreds of DVDs to choose from! We had each meal of the day at a different beautifully-set table. It was a chance to feel like a well-cared-for millionaire for a weekend!
If you are looking to get away and have a comfortable stay, especially with kids, this is the place to go. Plenty of water, power and internet. Great game room set off from the rest of the house, so they can be loud and not affect anyone else. The movie room was also a hit with everyone there is a huge DVD collection as well as Netflix. The staff are incredibly well trained to take care of you and prep the house each evening and morning. The whole house is beautiful and comfortable. With a large outdoor veranda with plenty of seating facing Mt Kenya, you could spend the whole day there. Seating for meals inside and out, also you can enjoy a fire inside and out.
