About the neighbourhood
We are close to a couple of nice pools with poolside restaurants, an ATV motor cross that will arrange a fun filled tour of the Lukenya Hills (home to several populations of zebras, wildebeests and giraffes), and the Nairobi airport (JKIA). You’ll love the ambience, the location, the quiet neighborhood, the scenic views, the beautiful rustic interiors and the luxurious super-comfortable beds. It's your home away from home! It's a great place for families and big groups.
Getting around
We are around 30km from Nairobi's main airport and also from the Athi River railway station, where you can catch a train to the beaches of Mombasa (a scenic 4.5 hour ride that passes through Tsavo National Park). You can generally take an uber to the house from most places around Nairobi although having your own car will be helpful if you want to get around within the area.
