Behind the lake is Mount Longonot. On your right you will see the Mau Escarpment. The house, is located in the Rift Valley in a very safe resort include an 18 hole championship golf course. To the site is an electric fence to keep out the dangerous wildlife. On site and also in your garden you will find zebras, impalas and other friendly wildlife.

Around the golf course has a close and friendly community of mostly European people located in Dutch, English, German, Scandinavian and American descent.
Malaika consists of a main house and a newly added construction.

The main house has on the ground floor a living / dining room with fireplace and patio doors to terrace and garden. Furthermore, there are three bedrooms, including a small bunk room. Through the staircase leads to a loft with a bedroom, a work area, a pool table and a large balcony with the best view you can imagine.

The construction consists of a sitting / dining room with fireplace. The staircase takes you upstairs to a bedroom and adjoining bathroom and a balcony again with fantastic views.
Malaika located on the grounds of the Great Rift Valley Lodge under management of Heritage. This is owned by the President of Kenya.

At the lodge belongs the golf course, where it is never crowded, tennis courts and swimming pools. Here you can also book private safaris.

In addition, the lodge has several restaurants, bars, shops, business centers and other things you can expect from a luxury lodge.

The house is easily accessible by road. You rent a car or van with a reliable company. Here we can assist. Count on 40-50 € per day. Then drive out of the city, continue straight on the A 104. This is an excellent two lane road. After about 107 km you will see a green sign with Great Rift Valley Lodge on the left side of the road. Here, then turn left and drive 12 km along a dirt road until you arrive at the lodge. Here you can ask for the reception of the lodge and there you get the key.

The host, Inske & Marius

Micazu member since April 2014

We are Inske and Marius den Dulk and, as a young married couple in 1972 sent to Curacao. Hence our love for Curacao. We have also lost our heart to Kenya and divide our time between these two wonderful places since our retirement. Two totally different locations, but both places we feel quite at home. We hope you will enjoy as we do these special homes.
