Rondo Retreat Centre
About Rondo Retreat Centre
This tranquil retreat in the Kakamega Rain Forest welcomes you for a few memorable days pursuing your hobbies as a butterfly collector, beetle specialist, frog fancier, spider hunter, tourist or bird watcher.
Rondo Retreat belongs to the Trinity Fellowship, a Christian society committed to communication and conservation.
The homestead consists of a main house of clapboard and colonial corrugated iron, and five cottages in the same old style, whose proximity to the forest makes for delightful accommodation.
Accommodation consists of fifteen en-suite double rooms, with an additional three rooms in the main house. All furnished with a vintage flair, that embarks on a combination of old, new and local.
Hearty English breakfasts, midday lunches, and candlelit dinners are served in a brightly cosy dining room, in front of a crackling fire. Tea can be taken in the sitting room, on the main verandah or in your room.
The chapel perched on the edge of the garden above a dramatic drop, and set apart from the other houses for solitude, is ideal for individual prayer and congregational services, meetings, seminars and small conferences. Solar energy is provided for lights, videos and a tape-recorder.
Among the vast array of birds the Kakamega Rain Forest is home to the flamboyant great blue turaco, gemlike emerald cuckoo and the cacophonous black-and-white casqued hornbill. From the monkey family we have the blue sykes, the common black and white colobus, and the rare debrazza’s.
