Sleeping Warrior Lodge, a 4 year old, owner-operated camp 3 hours from Nairobi is a great get-away if you want peaceful surroundings with stunning views, good activities and excellent game. We were pleasantly surprised that in 3 days we saw 11 species of mammals, including a herd of 30 Rothschild's giraffes ( of the 100 of these rare giraffes on...

What a great place to stay. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Drinks and washers on arrival. Our cabins were stand alone with great views all around the area and was nice to have some space from other guests. The cabins were well appointed with the bathroom open to the elements which was fun. Ken our host was fantastic and...

A very average camp that with a little better customer services and food could be rated 'good' We had the guest house room, very clean and comfy with a nice view, although it's very far to the lake and you need binoculars to see it. A nice shower outside, hot water was plentiful too. No tea and coffee making facilities...

I stayed there for 2 nights. First, I was a bit disappointed of the views (there are very nice photos on the website) but it was still great. I stayed at Eagles Nest (nice views to Lake Elementaita, the Sleeping Warrior Mountain and you also see some wildlife which is roaming around). The tent was very nice decorated. Food was...

I stopped by the camp while exploring the area. the place is very nice with a breath taking view. the staff is very cordial and nice and the place is incredibly homey. I count to return and spend one or 2 nights in the facility. a walk on the Sleeping Warrior Hill is a must!

Stay here if you are in the area. We stayed here as part of a much longer journey around East Africa, and this place was one of our favorites. Most of the posted photos seem to be from the place we stayed, but there are a few that are some other place, so be clear about where you are actually...

We stayed for two nights, our thatched tent was perched high on the hill, we could see for miles up and down the valley. It was a bit of a trek, but the position was worthwhile. There was a mosquito net over our bed so we slept with our door open to the night. The bathroom was small made of...

I recently stayed at Sleeping Warrior Kenya and I was very disappointed. The photos are nothing like the actual tents! we had a tent with no view, no mosquito nets, no hot water. the food was OK and the view from the eating area was pretty good. Staff friendly.
