Rangers in the Aberdares, Nyeri

High up in the Aberdares is the location of this farm stay in the general Nyeri area.This 3 bedroom house is on a 6 acre farm where Melvin Wahome lives with his wife and 3 children. Their farm offers great organic food in addition to products from chicken, cows, goats and rabbits.

The tranquility high up in the mountains is great for those who have no interest in the hustle and bustle of the town. One is spoilt for choice in this homestay on sights to visit as Aberdares National Park which covers the higher areas of the Aberdares Mountain Ranges is a 20 minute drive away. Catch the elusive leopard, watch buffalo fights or spy on elephants around the watering hole. The area was also the headquarters of the Mau Mau in the 1950s with General Dedan Kimathi’s hideout a place to check out.
