Day 6 – Enasoit, Laikipia – Hemingways, Nairobi – Zanzibar

After a final delicious breakfast of home-made granola, local honey and yogurt we were all very saddened to say goodbye to Enasoit and our hosts. This unpretentious camp had really been taken to all of our hearts.

The drive to Nanyuki gave another opportunity for sight-seeing before meeting our Safarilink flight to Nairobi from the provincial airport.  This prompt and comfortable flight delivered us safely to Nairobi where we were transferred to the newly opened Hemingways Nairobi Hotel for lunch.

Hemingways Nairobi, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, is an elegant new boutique hotel situated in Nairobi’s Karen residential area with magnificent views of the nearby Ngong Hills. This impressive colonial style hotel was well designed and would make an excellent stop-over in Nairobi or a destination in its own right.  It comes as a welcome haven from the usual hustle and bustle of life in Nairobi.

Our hosts, Managers Alastair and Simon, could not do enough for us and after an enjoyable tour of some very inviting looking suites we enjoyed a very spoiling lunch on the balcony before being whisked away to Nairobi airport via the National Park. Hosted by Hemingways in their very comfortable game vehicle this was definitely a very pleasant detour to beat the traffic and not only that it gave us our only rhino sighting which meant we had seen the ‘BIG 5’ whilst in Kenya.
