Mukima Estate

Mukima House Nanyuki, is a 15 minute drive from Nanyuki. The house stands on a 350 acre triangle, which was once a cedar forest. Evidence of the age and size of the forest can be seen in the timbers of which the house is built. There are clear views of Mount Kenya and the Loldaiga Hills from all corners of the property.

 

An electric fence, patrolled by a group of Samburu warriors, protects the land and its replanted forest of 20,000 hardwood trees from the cattle and goats that were overgrazing and causing erosion.

 

Mukima Estate has trails have been cut through the bush, which are safe to walk and enjoy the birds, plants and insects. A large dam in front of the house, fed by ground water from Mount Kenya, provides safe haven to many bird species, including egrets, ibis, storks, pelicans, various ducks and two breeding pairs of crested crane.

 

A small herd of impala and bushbuck are breeding on the farm, while tree hyrax provide the appropriate night noises and the guinea fowl are becoming tamer.

Nanyuki Town and the Surrounding Area
Nanyuki is the crossroads to many of East Africa's most beautiful and wild areas, sitting as it does in the heart of the country right under Mount Kenya and on the equator.

 

Surrounded by vegetable and flower farms, it is the nearest shopping place for the upcountry, wheat growing, sheep rearing, polo playing Timau ranchers.

 

The climate is brighter than Nairobi and the air clean and clear. There is a very useful cottage hospital; a Lunatic Lane where the last generation of white Kenyan eccentrics gathered; the Trout Tree restaurant; a Settlers Stores to provide all essentials plus local news; the British Army practices; an occasional opera performs; Nanyuki Club provides a 9 hole golf course and is the venue for the annual pony club spectacle, plus another event not to be missed - the East African Womens' League annual horticultural display.
