How old are those baobabs?

Stayed there with family (10 pax) including 3 kids under 10. We loved the swimming pools, especially the "quiet" one..although not as quiet as it could have been. The monkeys can be a nuisance. Liked the that they have maintained alot of the natural ambiance around the place. Evening shows were good and worth staying for especially for the kids. Would definitely return.

South Coast Getaway

Nairobi, Kenya

Spacious rooms that could accommodate a baby cot comfortably. The service and food was just awesome. Infinity pool was an excellent scene in addition to the daily evening shows. All inclusive meal plan was just the best within the 3 available restaurants; Maridadi, Kole Kole and baobab. Enough daily sports for one to choose.
