Kongoni Lodge is a well kept Kenyan lodge that is well suited for a family or two couples travelling together. Whilst quite a long way from the lake, you get lovely views of the lake and the grounds are very nicely maintained. The lodge provides activities - which young children would enjoy. We travelled with our son and his girlfriend - the cottage was adequate with each room having its own bathroom. However, there was no fridge or microwave, despite the cottage being fitted out with a full kitchen. This seemed a little perplexing to us. The reception staff were a little stiff - we inquired about booking a trip to Crescent Island. They indicated they could assist us, but when we followed up they indicated that we should just turn up to one of the boat hire companies that operate on the lake. We asked for a recommendation and they indicated that they could google some suggestions for us. So, in short - don't rely on them to assist you with external activities - make your own inquiries. The beds were a little hard as well. I am not sure I would return to this lodge, however, it was perfectly adequate for our needs and the restaurant and bar staff were very helpful.
