Kenya’s exclusive places where the rich go for holidays
The Royal Penthouse of the President Wilson Hotel

The rich are different, from me and you that is. So different that how they burn their money (like banks on fire) can make the poor weep.

Picture this. The Royal Penthouse of the President Wilson Hotel goes for $80,000. That is roughly Sh6.8 million a night. And sometimes it’s over booked! Let us come back to earth in Kenya where there are also pricey places attracting Hollywood stars like Bruce Wills and Angelina Jolie. Indeed, billionaire Sir Richard Branson and the eccentric soccer manager Jose Mourinho have jeted here for holidays. Okay, when you really get seriously rich, here are Kenya’s exclusive places for you to sample and feel lucky far from the madding crowd:

1. Sirai House One of the most exclusive lodges in Kenya. Situated in Laikipia, it offers access to some Kenya’s natural attractions; Mt Kenya, Lake Bogoria and the Rift Valley. For a week, a group can part with up to $50,000(Sh4.3 million). It is mostly accessed by flight, 50 minutes from Nairobi and upon landing you will be driven for 30 minutes for you access the lodge. The minimum stay is three nights and the house is available for booking all year round. Doubles up as a conservancy. You can eat your breakfast as a buffalo beckons in the background. The ranch also offers game drives, horse riding and walking safaris.

2. Ol Jogi, Laikipia Plateau Snoozing your night off here will set you back $30,000 (Sh2.6 million) inside this 58,000-acre ranch in Laikipia Plateau, 225 kilometres out of Nairobi. If in a group, a maximum of 14, each individual will pay $2000 (Sh172, 000) for the same before enjoying horse riding to massages, swimming pools the following day.

3.  Shompole Eco-Lodge Located in the Nguruman escarpment in the Great Rift Valley, the hotel prides itself for eco-tourism. During peak seasons, nightly rates are $2,225(Sh191,000) and an extra $795 (Sh68,000) for every extra person. Just so you know, this is where Bill Gates, then the world’s richest man came to stay when he came to Kenya in 2006. Shompole was named the ‘Best Honeymoon Destination in the World’ by Britain’s Conde Nast Traveller magazine.

4. Mt Kenya Safari Club Certainly, one of the biggest names in the industry. The presidential suite goes for $1,200 (Sh103,000) a night, but during Christmas the hotel charges a flat rate of Sh1m per family for a week or so.
