Enkaji Osiwo, Champagne Ridge
Enkaji Osiwo House is another one of our crowd-pleasers at the edge of the Rift Valley, just 1.5 hours away from Nairobi. This quaint little house sleeps 4 people in one double bedroom and a twin room. The house comes with a cosy living room and fireplace, basic kitchen and a huge veranda, perfect for sundowners and days overlooking the majestic view. It also an outside loo (with a view, as you’ll see).
While you’re up at Enkaji Osiwo take advantage of the spectacular views to soak in the best of Africa’s peace and tranquillity; the large acreage of land is ideal for walking and cycling, or just lounge on the veranda with a glass of wine and watch Africa go by. Enkaji comes with house help, but there is no chef and is run entirely on solar and wind power generation, so please don’t bring hairdryers or high-powered devices to the house. You will need a 4×4 to get to the house (let us know if you need help to hire one!). The simple rustic charm of Enkaji is sure to win you over and make you want to return.
Champagne Ridge lies right at the edge of the Great Rift Valley, with breath-taking views, stunning skies and unrivalled sunset views across the Rift. Less than two hours from Nairobi (depending on traffic in Ngong and Ongata Rongai towns), these amazing houses are the perfect weekend getaways, whether you’re walking and cycling or just stopping to breathe and get some space. Whether you’re looking to get away for a weekend, or a retreat when you need some privacy and space, Champagne Ridge is the place for you… welcome home.
