Kimugu River Lodge has come of age and rooms, so not pricy, certainly would do with some renovation. It features a restaurant with excellent and very original Indian food and the friendly and helpful owners and the staff do their best to make clients feel comfortable and welcome. Maybe not a place for travelers who expect luxury but certainly for those who like to do a bit of "time travel".

We did not sleep at this place (unfortunately), but came for dinner and a beer. The food was really the best food we had after two weeks in Kenya! The Indian owner of the place cooks the delicious food herself. She and the waiter were very nice people. We wished we had not already booked another place to sleep, otherwise we would have definitely stayed here. When we went to our hotel after dinner they even arranged that one of their clients dropped us off. Very kind of them and their client! If you are in Kericho, you should really go to this place.

Incredibly beautiful lodge with delicious food and very friendly staff. Had a wonderful lunch and looks very picturesque in front of the Kimugu River. The buttered chicken was especially and the owners had some very helpful local advice.

We spent 2 nights at kimugu river lodge. The owner sarbjit and rekhaben and all the staff made us feel very welcome. We have now ended up as very good friends. They did utmost to help us find our birth place and show the surrounding area which made the stay unforgettable. The food was home cooked Indian food, stunning location by the river and great hosts. The atmosphere was one of our highlights in Kenya.

From the moment we got here we were welcomed and made to feel at home. The food is a highlight and cooked to your requirements. The hosts organised a tea tour for us, it was really interesting going around the tea factory and seeing the surrounding areas. It is in a beautiful and tranquil spot with lovely grounds and friendly staff.
