Mara: Leleshwa Camp
Lamu: Shella Royal House Hotel
Tanga: Mkongo Hotel

Thanks for any reply

Fairview excellent going from strength to strength. Used to be an upcountry persons hotel but very suitable for tourists nice pool, great sandwich bar, safe location and best security in nbi with israeli embassy across the road. Believe they have a new wine cellar too. Still family run by Charles Szlapack and his daughter and son in law. Dont really know much about the others. Except I believe that Lellshwa is owned and operated by Joe Charleson used to be at Cottars. I believe it is on the orribille near Siana Springs. A nice hideaway but not so pretty ride into the park through Sekenani Gate.

The Fairview is a lovely family run hotel with beautiful gardens that are perfect for outdoor meals. As mentioned the security is excellent, but some opt not to be across from the Israeli embassy - security or not. It hasn't stopped me for staying, but has to be a personal decision.

Can't comment personally on the others props, but do recall their mention some time back. You may want to do a search on this board. Use the box at the top of this forum... input Leleshwa (or Shella or Mkongo) click the search button to the right. Threads containing information will appear in the left column.
