FAQ

Do I need to take malaria tablets?

Laragai House is at a high altitude of 6,300 feet above sea level. This means that we get very few mosquitos, and rarely the ones that carry malaria. However we always suggest you speak to your doctor before making an informed decision.

Is the water used for cooking fresh and clean?

Yes, all the food preparation in the kitchen is done using clean, safe water. All our ice is also made from filtered water.

Do you have WiFi?

The house has excellent WiFi across the whole property. There is a small study which guests are welcome to use should you require it.

What power sockets does Laragai House have?

Plugs are the same as those found in the UK and are 220 / 240 volts AC. We suggest you bring adaptors with you as they are hard to find in Kenya and we only have a limited supply.

Is there an age limit for visiting Laragai House?

We welcome all ages at Laragai House. Our staff are great with children and we have a number activities available to keep the little ones entertained. If needed, we can provide a nanny to look after children while parents and adults are eating or relaxing in the evening. We can also make meals for children to be eaten earlier than the adults and adjusted according to their preferences and dietary requirements. We also welcome groups of multi-generations. Laragai House is well laid out for older members of the group, with flat group and minimal stairs. The Valentine Room is often used for older guests as it has easy access and is near to the Drawing Room.

What should we bring to wear?

As Laragai House is at a high altitude, it is good to pack for both warm and cool weather. It is wise to choose clothing in neutral, camouflage colours such as brown, khaki, stone or beige which will make you less visible and able to get closer to wild animals It is also advisable to layer your clothing as this provides more warmth when necessary and allows you to remove clothing during the hottest period of the day.

Should I bring extra money with me?

Your stay at Laragai House is inclusive of activities (with the exception of more than one horse ride per stay, which is an extra $80 per ride, scenic flights and helicopter rides), meals, house wines, spirits and conservation fees. Any extra costs incurred on a visit to Laragai House can be paid for using our card machine. Any extra, smaller costs, including gratuities, can be paid for in cash. Both USD and KSH is welcome.

What is the best amount of time to stay at Laragai House for?

We always suggest staying with us at Laragai House for a minimum of three nights, but even then this can feel too short. With so much to do and see, both in the grounds of the house and on Borana Conservancy, three to four nights can make for a more relaxing stay. In 2020, we released an extended stay special offer of stay for 7, pay for only 6 nights. Please email our reservations team to find out more.
