Ok so the place dates from the 70s but it still has a great deal of simple charm. The few staff are wonderfully hospitable and the food is fine and generous.

It is 3km from Marsabit in a great forest area..after travelling through flat desert to get there (and the following day to Lake Turkana) Go with an open mind and...
