The Amazing Kenya Retreat-Maanzoni

The Amazing Kenya Retreat just by the name recommends it is exceptionally astonishing. Only a couple of kilometers from Nairobi you will branch at Maanzoni. Consequently you should experience some minor security checks before you make a beeline for the hotel. I preferred the way the environment gives you the safari feeling and there numerous natural life creatures around that you will get the chance to see like zebras, elands, giraffes' and gazelles. 

The hotel has a decent perspective of the savannah fields from the rooms and when the weather is clear you can see Mount Kenya which is one hundred and fifty kilometers toward the north. It is truly an unwinding place for both tourists and Kenyan residents as well. Just from taking a gander at the website I knew what was in store and I wasn't frustrated when I arrived at the hotel.
