Maanzoni being next to the road is convenient conferencing facility. It remains conferencing until you take a walk around. Then you realize it is much more than what you imagined. It's romantic, extra large and acoustic rooms. Just the best

A great place with a private zoo with cheetahs, lions, ostriches, buffaloes, rare eagle. THe buffalo was scary. They allowed us to touch the cheetahs.

This sanctuary is located in Machakos County, Kenya. One house drive from Nairobi. Its home for plain game, giraffe, Lions, Elephants and may other wildlife. Great for stop over or weekend visit. This is also home of Maanzoni Lodge.

I loved the clean ladies washrooms at the reception and the friendliness of the atmosphere there, yet the privacy given to visitors... All speak in a quiet but friendly manner. No loud bold tourist shouting Jambos from the workers. I just loved it very much

Went in the long rains season when wildlife was plentiful, moderate sized herds of grazers which you could get quite close to thanks to the numerous trails. Plenty to see all day, but best times early morning or evening.

The rooms are spacious, but a bit chilly. The grounds are amazing. The staff could be a bit more welcoming towards guests. All in all, a place I would visit over & over.

Was great to see the lions.. 4 of them but sadly the rates are not well defined or indicated, appeared discretionary and thankfully diverted into the individual's pocket since no receipt was issued. Appears a little run down for a place keeping wildlife. More needs...More

one freely watches wildlife like the gazzele, girrafe, wildbeast and several others for free. The area is surrounded by beautiful hills in the horizon that gives it a great ambiance
