This reasonably priced, self-catering government guesthouse is 8 km (5 mi) from the Mtito Andei Gate, an easy 240-km (149-mi) drive from Nairobi. Built of red brick and red tiles, it has four clean, sparsely furnished bedrooms. Linens, soap, towels, and basic kitchen implements are provided; bring drinking water and firewood. You are allowed up to 10 guests; it's a bit of a squash, but worth it for the proximity to attractions such as Mzima Springs.
