          We had a small room but everything we needed for our short stay. Super comfy beds/pillows and very grateful for the early check in. The mini rhinos were a sweet gift and will no doubt have a place on our mantle piece at home.

          The restaurant was really expensive/overpriced - higher than the comparative cost for dinner at Fairmont hotels in Canada but we only had one meal there thankfully. Very high security which was good for peace of mind but unlike anywhere I've ever been to - rather like returning to a cruise ship after a port of call.

          This hotel was really good. The food was amazing and there was a historic vibe to the building. There was a personal trainer and many other luxurious that made the stay special.

          Watch out for the 29% tax surcharge!

          A bit disappointed that the quoted rate was exclusive of Kenya taxes of 29%. This made a big difference to the total charges. The bar was pleasant and drinks prices reasonable. Breakfast buffet price steep, and only on the second query were we offered a cheaper rate (about $US10pp) for coffee and pastries alone. Room was nice, and wifi included in the rate.

          After a slightly more basic flight than we've become accustomed to (oh the shock of no seat back TVs and fully reclining seats) and a medical emergency on board (thankfully all okay), we have landed in the warm weather of Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta International airport. You have to arrange and pay for electronic visas beforehand here at a costly sum of …

          Once again into Johannesburg airport. Think I have this airport worked out? Great flight with SA Airlines and arrived at Nairobi. A little cooler than we thought. An interesting drive from the airport to accomodation. It seemed like there were no traffic rules. Overnight at the Fairmont then off to Amboseli Game Reserve.
