Rolf’s Place

We spent the night at Rolf’s Place, a beautiful mansion and bed-and-breakfast getaway located in Nairobi National Park. It’s situated on a cliff over some sort of a gorge, and there’s this wooden bridge spanning the ravine from the parking lot to the property—quite breathtaking!

We ate a few meals in the restaurant which overlooks the gorge, and we could see giraffes wandering around munching on trees just across the way. There’s not much else to do besides eat, but you can swim, play paintball, and ride horses.

We swam, Cassandra rode horses, and I drank a lot of coffee. It was kinda expensive to stay for the night, but you could always just go for the afternoon and enjoy all the same sights and sounds for a very reasonable price. Even so, staying for the night wasn’t so bad if you consider what you’d get for a similar price at a place like the Hilton in Nairobi’s central business district. Hint: there ain’t no giraffes at the Hilton!

I’ll post a few more pictures later!
