The Kongoni Ranch is a private park, open to all people who want to experience the real Africa, away from the hustle and bustle of safari tours. It is a special place, remaining on the sidelines of beaten paths overrun by hordes of tourists rushing to photograph yet another representative of the African savannah.

Overview



Kongoni is an exclusive safari destination. It offers personalized attention to only a small number of guests. It's located overlooking Lake Naivasha and dwells near a large part of Kenya's wildlife that lives off the vast plains of the Great Rift Valley.

The ranch is located in the central part of Kenya, some 120 km northwest of Nairobi. It includes about 1000 acres of savannah, a beautiful garden, stables, and a holding, whose focal point is a century old farm, once belonging to Margaret Countess De Perigny and her beloved husband, Roger. Their tombs, made of white stones and placed in the central part of the garden, are today a visible reminder of the former owners.

A bungalow, built in colonial style, with spacious verandas overlooking the Lake Naivasha Valley. A small park featuring characteristic Euforbi trees, which resemble seaweed in shape, surrounds the house. Guests can enjoy several spacious bedrooms with ensuite modern bathrooms. They can also make use of the spacious veranda, living room with a fireplace and the pool. The chef serves Italian as well as local dishes.

The estate is located on the migration route of animals and thus the garden gate is left open to allow free movement of the animals. In the evenings the garden is visited by zebras, antelopes, giraffes, hippos and warthogs.

Kongoni is the ideal starting point for trips to Nakuru National Park, Hell's Gate National Park, The Masai Mara National Reserve, (also known as Maasai Mara) Samburu National Park and Samburu National Reserve.

Within 5 minutes drive there is a beautiful crater lake, 10 minutes later we get to Hell's Gate.

Kongoni also has its own runway - it's a good place to make further airplane and helicopter tours. Masai Mara Reserve is located within 40 minutes by flight, Amboseli National Park and Mt Kenya - 1.5 hours.
