Explore the gateway to Kenya’s Northern frontier with a Nanyuki getaway at Sweet Waters Serena Camp, Falcon Heights, Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club or Ol Pejeta House.
This resort town is 0° 01′ north of the equator where the Coriolis Force works it magic – draining water swirls in a circular motion to the amazement of onlookers.
A Nanyuki getaway not only provides you with spirit-lifting views of Mount Kenya and the Rift Valley, it exposes the influence of the British on this market town.
Thanks to the railway line that links the town to Nairobi, Nanyuki is a cosmopolitan destination sporting British, Indians and Kenyans from different tribes.
