CHILDREN ARE A BIG PART OF THIS FAMILY, THEY ARE ACTIVE AND IMPRESSIONABLE, BUT ALSO LOVE MEETING NEW PEOPLE. ALL GUESTS ARE ASKED TO BEHAVE APPROPRIATELY INCLUDING USING THE RIGHT LANGUAGE AND APPROACH TO THEM.
Resources such as Water and Electricity are really scarce in Kenya, we request our guests to be conscious of this and take quick showers, don't leave the water running and turn out the light when you leave a room.
Finally you are here to stay with us and learn, please have fun, ask questions, we are more than willing to assist where we can. We would love that you are part of the family and teach us about yourself too.
