Day 1

If staying in extraordinary places on your bucket list, this is the place for you. We had the pleasure of staying in Brandy Bus for a night and it was amazing. It's a vintage double decker bus renovated into a beautiful home you would never want to leave. This is a must do if you are in Kenya.

The Rooms 

There are two bedrooms on upper story which are beautifully decorated and has everything that you might need for a comfortable stay. Additionally I really loved the collection of books at Brandy Bus. The rooms are very tidy, neat, comfortable and gives a classic vibe. The lower story has a kitchen cum living room with a microwave, gas unit, water dispenser, and mini fridge. There is even a dining area and little area to relax and chit chat. The lower story is well connected to a washroom with a bath and toilet.

The bus is stationed in a lush green garden with gorgeous flowers. Just outside the bus there is a fire place where you can enjoy the warmth and the ambience.

Also, if you are a dog lover, you can play with three super cute and friendly dogs here on the property.
