Join us for a weekend at Ngororo Guesthouse. Situated 8km from Nanyuki town, this unique and spacious private house with family pets is ideal for a peaceful getaway. The property hosts a large variety of birds and visiting Colobus and Sykes Monkey’s. It is surrounded by lush vegetation of indigenous trees and plants, has a large fish pond, and a Gazebo situated at the river. It is ideal for bird watching and nature lovers.
On Saturday, we leave early from the Museum to arrive at Ngororo Guesthouse for lunch with an afternoon visit to the Sirimon Cheese Factory to see how their cheeses are made. Sirimon has made a commitment to work within the community and with the small shareholder dairy farmers to support them and to reduce their ecological footprint. Dinner is at Ngororo Guesthouse.
The Ngare Ndare Forest is 40 minutes away in the foothills of Mount Kenya and we plan to visit the Forest for a day trip on Sunday. (http://www.ngarendare.org/index.php) The activities at the Forest include a canopy walk, forest walking, or bird watching depending on your interest. The canopy walkway is a 40 ft. high aerial bridge of wiremesh and cables meandering through the tree canopy and extending 450 metres long. The walkway ends at a wooden platform 30 off the ground where there is frequently a great view of buffalo and elephants in the river. We’ll have a picnic lunch at the Forest. Sundowners at the Gazebo by the river and dinner at the house will end the day. On Monday, the plan is to visit a raspberry farm on our way back to Nairobi.
