It's accomodation in Nairobi - nice big house with rooms available and also able to camp there. Very good facilities (wifi etc) and good place to service your bike or do repair work. Chris (the owner) is very knowledgable with BMW (ex BMW mechanic), and I'm sure he knows his way around other bikes too. Relaxed place and lots of other overlanders there to get some good info too.

I spent 2 months there on and off waiting for parts and it is by far the best overlander/rider place in Africa. Chris (ask him how his remote control plane is going!) is cool, doesn't take any shit, and keeps the place running well (Friday BBQ is very tasty). Duncan (the reception guy- tell him that David asks if Duncan is Done? Oh, and tease him about having more kids!) is also cool and good for getting little things done- ie tent zipper fixed, etc.

Sure, I sound like a cheerleader but there has rarely been a nice hotel since that I wouldn't trade in a second for a tent at JJ's.

Another JJ cheerleader here.

The local Kenyan mechanic who works there is a great guy too. Did some work on our Honda for free, and always chatty and friendly.

Everyone I know who has stayed there (author included) ended up staying longer than intended as it's such a great place to be. Always lots of overlander traffic to share a and a tale with, and camping isn't too expensive. It's the perfect central African place to take a breather, get things fixed and shoot the breeze.

I found it difficult to locate, drove past it half a dozen times, and it took about 3 hours just to get to that point. That's my problem for not having a map of Nairobi really. It's only got a little JJ sign on the gate, so is easy to miss.

One tiny negative, and that is that some people while I was there had problems with Duncan trying to rip them off. It was sorted out pretty quickly though.
