Kenyan Homestays

Mwalo's Homestay, Nairobi

The Mwalo’s live in an apartment in Langata and in the neighbourhood of the only nature reserve Nairobi National Park (NNP). They love travelling, are avid movie watchers (theatre works included), art and paint lovers and interacting with foreign cultures. Other pastimes include board games, listening to music and surfing online.

Couples or small groups will love their homestay as it is secure and is within easy reach of the NNP, Giraffe Centre, David Sheldrick Elephants Orphanage, Bomas of Kenya just to name but a few.

This homestay has 2 rooms with 5 beds available to host guests quite comfortably. Room one has 3 beds while the second room has 2 beds, with both being furnished with inbuilt wardrobes, mirror, table & chair and completed with their own separate bathroom. The beds are double deckers & double and single beds.
