Description

Built in the old traditional style of local stone and timber, Kiangazi House has three double en-suite bedrooms within the main house and two further double en-suite bedrooms just beyond the swimming pool. A sitting room, dining room, bar and library are found within the main house and guests can also enjoy a spot of tennis or relax by the pool.

Kiangazi House has panoramic views across the Great Rift Valley and the shimmering waters of Lake Naivasha. Kiangazi House lies in the Oserian Wildlife Corridor connecting the lake shore and surroundings with Hells Gate National Park and Maasai land beyond. Adjacent to the corridor is the 20,000-acre Oserengoni Wildlife Sanctuary complete with a fascinating diversity of wildlife including rhino, leopard, cheetah, Grevy’s zebra, giraffe, greater kudu and hyena.

Sweeping views from the veranda have changed little from the bygone days of the early pioneers who settled in this area at the turn of the century. Below the house, guests can explore the lake shore with its masses of water birds including pelicans and flamingos as well as game drive in the yellow barked acacia forests looking for leopards seeking out their wary antelope prey. With inviting waterholes below the main house it’s possible to view a procession of thirsty big game at close quarters.

Trained chefs prepare international cuisine and appetising breakfasts and lunches which are often taken outside in the lush gardens or on the expansive veranda. Game drives and sundowners in the Oserengoni Wildlife Sanctuary can be organized and you can also drive or walk along the beautiful lake shore.

Accommodation

Kiangazi House has five beautifully traditional rooms - all en-suite. The four-poster beds and fresh cut roses in each room create a romantically colonial feel. The magnificent furniture, carved from the Leleshwa tree root, has been hand crafted in their workshop. There are three double rooms in the main house and a further two doubles close to the swimming pool.
