If you have made a prior booking, the proprietors, Chemutai and David, will be there to meet you at the gate.
Kips Eco Resort is still in the early stages of development. Accommodation is limited to one house built to resemble a traditional Nandi house and two “bamboo lodges” ---- each furnished with two beds. Their interiors are simple and rustic. They lack a hot shower; but hot water is available in basin or jug. Electricity sockets are there for appliances and charging mobile phones etc. Perhaps the best feature of the rooms is the light but warm duvet blanket on each bed.
Meals are served in the homely atmosphere of David and Chemutai’s dining room”. Advance booking is recommended.
Day visitors to Kips Resort come to relax or take a picnic in the recreational garden which is Kip’s special attraction. The garden is located in a small “wetland valley” accessed by a short but steep descent. Already, though far from finished, it is beautiful and peaceful. It has a fish pond and a variety of birds are residents or visitors, including Ross’s turaco. A small number of sitatunga antelope may be introduced soon.
Wedding, workshop, seminar and garden-party groups may book all or part of the garden for their special needs.
From Kips Resort, day trips can be arranged to, among other places, Kapsimotwo Gardens, Nandi Bears Golf Club, Koitalel Samoei Museum, Kibabet caves, Chemomi wetland picnic site and an operating tea factory.
