Moja Juu & Moja Chini

Moju Juu and Moja Chini are our two single bedroom cottages. Each cottage has an ensuite bedroom with a private lounge/dining room, and all rooms open out across an extensive verandah to the river and plains beyond. It is ideal for couples who want a private bush escape or small families who want to share a room with a young child.

One kitchen serves each unit so these cottages are for clients staying on a fully inclusive package only. Each comes with a private guide and vehicle and dedicated waiter and room attendant. Meals are catered to your tastes and standards exactly, and activities are done on your own schedule.

In the cottage you will find an eco-friendly power system to charge your devices, 24hr solar electricity, hot and cold running water in the shower and wash basin, a collection of all natural bath products and soft bath towels.

Mbili

Mbili is the beating heart of Ol Pejeta Safari Cottages. She’s our pioneer cottage and is built largely of recycled wood from the ranch house that once stood here. Mbili is a two bedroom cottage, with an open plan living and dining room warmed by a roaring fire. The bedrooms are both ensuite and sleep two comfortably, or three in a triple room. All the rooms unzip, safari-style to a large verandah overlooking the river and plains beyond

Mbili has its own dedicated kitchen and chef, making it ideal for self catering groups or those who just like that extra touch of privacy. It also comes with a private guide and vehicle and dedicated waiter and room attendant. Meals are catered to your tastes and standards exactly, and activities are done on your own schedule.

Tatu

Tatu was built because we loved Mbili so much. It’s an exact replica and the two can comfortably be used by groups of 8 or 12 as they are within walking distance of each other, but the thick bushes between them ensure privacy when it is required. The long verandah looks out to the river and plains beyond and is an ideal place to relax in the afternoons with a cup of steaming Kenyan tea. There are two bedrooms, both en-suite with a spacious living room and dining area warmed by an open fire.
