Enchipai Campsite and Cottages pulled a fast one for its clients in this year’s Madaraka Day with exciting lots of freebies which were won by visitors.
It was its first Madaraka Day in business, and the management now says it was a breakthrough by all standards.
From June 1 to 3rd, 2018, guests who travelled from as far as Kisumu, Kitale, Nairobi and Mombasa had an opportunity to sample what Enchipai Campsite and Cottages could provide.
Kajiado News Update team was also in attendance and made merry with the guests who danced through Saturday June 2 to June 3 as they wash down meals taken earlier with assorted drinks served at the main bar.
Jane Wamboi, one of the merrymakers had this to say; “This is heaven on earth. Oh My God, I cannot believe this. No one can believe that out here there is a haven of earthly virgins of beauty. I love the chirping birds, the clean breeze and lastly the great food they provide here.”
Wamboi was not alone. Phylis Medza, another guest said she was excited by the cottages made with an African mindset. I have never slept for long hours in many years. This is the perfect destination for merry makers. I came from Taita Taveta to discover this. It is Wauuh!”
Dan Njoroge, a businessman in Nairobi, was one of the guests from the city who came to adventure. He said Enchipai is a perfect destination for ‘lover birds’ and that he had come to discover so he can come over with his wife before the end of June.
“I came, conquered, and now I am going back to my wife to tell the story. While I believe the county government can work on the bad sections of the road from Isinya to Enchipai, there is still the enjoyment driving on the bad road terrain to this place,” said Njoroge.
The management offered the lowest rates ever for guests from only Sh10, 000 for three days, two nights with bed and breakfast.
