“Out of the bushes, into The Norfolk”

Tudor-style buildings, private gardens, and a restaurant named after a well-known British East African aristocratic settler … it’s not a stretch to imagine The Norfolk as an oasis, built to offer creature comforts during colonial days. Over a century later, it’s still being used as basecamp for explorers of the great outdoors. African safaris may have their Big 5, but so does The Norfolk: beautiful colonial heritage, peaceful gardens, outdoor heated pool, relaxing spa, and farm-to-plate restaurant Tatu.

Best time to visit : June to October
