The River House is set in a remarkably natural setting over looking a river and with beautiful nature walks on your doorstep. It is beautifully decorated in a boho-chic fashion from its twin baths with a chandelier, cozy fireplace and impressive library. Just next door is the 5 star Hemingways Hotel where you can watch the sunset over the Ngong Hills with a cocktail. Set on one of the prettiest roads in Karen and only a short distance to great walks, restaurants and shopping.

Nairobi, Kenya

The River House is situated in a quiet, peaceful neighbourhood. However, there are an array of restaurants and shops on your doorstep if you need. Why not explore Kazuri Beads, which is also very close by. Take a tour of the factory and watch the beads being made by hand.
