One Forty Eight is a beautiful new boutique hotel bordering the giraffe sanctuary in the peaceful suburb of Langata on the outskirts of Nairobi. This bohemian-chic little hotel, set in a wildlife-rich garden, has been converted from a stunning private home and artist’s studio. The eight spacious rooms feature striking artwork and recycled furniture (as well as all the modern conveniences); the food is delicious and the service first class. One Forty Eight is a wonderful and so stylish place to spend a night at the start or end of your safari.
