Just twenty minutes drive from the capital, Nairobi, with the Nairobi National Park on its doorstep and the home of Karen Blixen close by, Macushla is a welcome alternative to consider, providing the amenities of a hotel yet the warmth and character of a private home.
The Lodge style home offers peace and comfort with facilities for conferences, seminars and workshops on a small scale. The overnight accommodation is spacious with ensuite bathrooms for a maximum of ten guests. Open beamed ceilings, natural woodwork, log fires in the lounges and views over one of the last pockets of indigenous forest, complement the serenity and style of Macushla. The private study offers the business traveller a quiet corner to connect with their laptop or the exercise bicycle - or both?!
A bedroom at Macushla.
Macushla House has limited rooms and plenty of room!
The bar and dining room take on an ambiance of intimacy yet have been host to many a celebratory function and informal business dinner. The food at Macushla will leave you in no doubt that you are in a private home and not a hotel. Meals are prepared with the freshest of ingredients with particular care being given to presentation and simple but wholesome cooking. The terrace and swimming pool are regular venues for guests to relax, choose a tasty dish from the daily menu offered throughout the day and evening, or simply a traditional tea with a hint of indulgence - scones, strawberry jam and cream.
The gardens are left to natural growth and indigenous flora and bird life. The Giraffe Centre is within easy walking distance and a short drive will take you to Kazuri Beads Workshop, Utamuduni Crafts for Conservation and Daphne Sheldrick's orphanage, home to numerous orphaned elephant and rhino.
Macushla House is a welcome alternative for safari and business traveller alike, whether overnight or long-term and the staff, Carrie and Grant, are on hand with that personal touch.
Transport can be arranged on request to and from the airport or downtown Nairobi.
