The Tower is a cute 2 storey cottage next to The Castle on Champagne Ridge. This quaint, quirky and just a little eccentric cottage is perfect for a couple looking for a getaway destination that is stunning yet affordable.

Enjoy amazing views of the Rift Valley while gently swinging on the suspended day/night bed upstairs, soak in views of the Ngong Hills while BBQing steaks or enjoying an alfresco breakfast on the private patio. Only 1 hour from Karen makes this an ideal quick getaway.

The space
We are continuing to welcome guests and are committed to ensuring we are all kept healthy and safe (guests and our local Masai community). We have implemented a 24 hours time lapse between guests leaving and new guests arriving. This is in addition to a strict sterilization cleaning protocol between guests. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have on your travel plans if your preferred dates are not available. We hope to resume back to normal as soon as possible.

We will maintain a ZERO CONTACT policy with our guests, this includes check in and check out. Once you arrive and park we will direct you to your accommodation where you will find the key to let yourselves in. All communication will be through phone or WhatsApp throughout your stay.

Fawlty Tower is a cute and compact cottage. The ground floor boasts a lovely private patio surrounded by flowers and stunning views of the Ngong Hills. The perfect place to enjoy breakfast or a sundowner alfresco style. From the patio french doors takes us to the small compact kitchen complete with gas cooker, grill, fridge and warming oven. There is also a dining table for 2 next to the kitchen, a very comfortable queen size bed and a separate toilet and shower.

Take the custom designed open staircase to the upstairs living area where you will be wowed with the King size suspended bed complete with inbuilt bookcase! But that is not the best part. Roll up the plastic tent window to showcase stunning views across the valley, climb on the bed and gently sway while gazing at the view. The day/night bed has extra large fluffy pillows to complete the total relaxation experience.

Once you have made a booking you will receive confirmation from Airbnb along with written directions. Please use the written directions to get to our place as these are correct. Online map systems are not accurate in this area and are likely to take you on a magical mystery tour.

Guest access
Guests staying at Fawlty Tower have access to 10 acres of natural African savannah in addition to thousands of acres of unfenced bush to explore. Feel free to bring your bikes or hiking boots and enjoy.

Our area is in the heart of Masai Land meaning it is incredibly safe to bike and hike and explore!

During the rainy season (April/May and Nov) you may need a 4x4. We get significantly less rain than Nairobi so most days the last 12kms from Kona Baridi on the murrum road is bumpy but fine for all cars, occasionally it does rain making the road a little slippery in parts.

Other things to note
Fawlty Tower runs on a unique stand alone 12 volt solar power system to run lamps, LED lights and USB charging points. There are is a standard power point downstairs in the guest house.

Fawlty Tower is situated near our 2 wind turbines which provide electricity. Upstairs can be a little noisy if it is a windy night hence we have provided 2 sleeping areas. Upstairs and downstairs. Downstairs with the french doors closed offers great insulation from the noise from the windmills.

Kiserian, Kenya

Situated in the middle of Masai Land, Champagne Ridge is 1 hour from Nairobi. The area is classic Africa with Acacia trees, zebra, eland, antelope, gazelles and the occasional ostrich roam freely throughout the area.

Fawlty Tower on Champagne Ridge is immediately adjacent to The Castle and is not far from Kiserian, Ngong, Ongata Rongai or Karen in distance but feels like an entirely different World.

Away from the hustle and bustle of city life we enjoy a chilled relaxed rural lifestyle. We are only 8kms from the new Champagne 4x4 Rally Park where several 4x4 off road and rallying events are held throughout the year. It is also home to the amazing Masai 7s rugby event!

Originally from Adelaide, Australia I have lived on the African continent since 2003 working in tourism as well as running our own community solar power project Napenda Solar Community. I have spent the better part of my working life outside of Australia and living all over the World. Our place in Kenya is our refuge, a place to relax and recharge the batteries. I love to cook so spend my free time in the kitchen working on some new recipe or simply experimenting with various ingredients and textures. We have a small organic garden which we try and grow some veggies, our area is semi desert so this poses as a challenge during the dry season. We have 5 German Shepherd dogs; Sally, Stella, Beau, Zanny and Pikey who are thoroughly spoiled, although they may not agree! They love their daily walks, swimming in the dam and playing soccer (football). Sally and Stella are adopted, while Beau and Zanny are rescue dogs; and Pikey arrived on our front lawn in Dec 2019 begging for food and never left! I live with my husband, Tim, and 5 dogs; we love traveling and the dogs love camping! The Castle is open to all regardless of religion, culture, sexual orientation or nationality. After all, variety is the spice of life.
