Mwea National Reserve

 
Mwea National Reserve The reserve was gazetted in 1976 covering an area north-west of Kamburu Dam at the confluence of Tana and Thiba rivers. Two islands within Kamburu dam (constructed in 1976) are in the protected area. On the southern boundary is the Tana River, the eastern is the Thiba River and the northern boundary is an electric fence that stops animals from invading Makima settlements. The earliest human settlement in Makima dates from 1914, though wildlife conservation intervention was not until 1972. Mwea National Reserve is today co-managed between Kenya Wildlife Service and Mbeere County Council. Mwea National Reserve Trust was founded in 1991 with the aim of soliciting funds to develop the reserve. Quite a number of project...

Sibiloi National Park

 
Sibiloi National Park National Park - 1,570 sq km - Managed by Kenya Wildlife Services Sibiloi National Park is one of the worlds greatest treasures, where the proof of mans origins was found. It was originally established by the Museum of Kenya to protect unique prehistoric and archaeological sites. In the 1960s Dr. Richard Leakey led an expedition to this remote area near Kenyas border with Ethiopia, and discovered some of the earliest hominid traces ever at Koobi Fora now credited as some of the most important paleontological finds of the 20th century. In the 1960s and 1970s over 160 fossil remains of early man including Homo Habilis and Homo Erectus were discovered, placing mans origins to three million years. Over 4,000 fossi...
 

The Ruins of Gedi

 
The Ruins of Gedi Gedi is one of Kenya's great unknown treasures, a wonderful lost city lying in the depths of the great Arabuko Sokoke forest. It is also a place of great mystery, an archaeological puzzle that continues to engender debate among historians. To this day, despite extensive research and exploration, nobody is really sure what happened to the town of Gedi and its peoples. This once great civilization was a powerful and complex Swahili settlement with a population of over 2500, built during the 13th century. The ruins of Gedi include many houses, mansions, mosques and elaborate tombs and cemeteries. Despite the size and complexity of this large (at least 45 acre) settlement, it is never mentioned in any historic writ...
 

Karen Blixen Museum

 
Karen Blixen Museum For anyone with an interest in Karen Blixen's book Out of Africa or the subsequent film, this museum is a must see. The author lived on a coffee estate in a house known as Bogani from 1914 until 1931. This area has now developed into the modern suburb of Karen on the outskirts of Nairobi. The house is now a National Museum, and is maintained for visitors in its original condition. Those who have read the book, or seen the film (which was filmed on location here) will recognize the house with its sprawling tropical garden and views of the nearby Ngong Hills. Efforts have been made to decorate all of the rooms of the house in their original style. The house itself is furnished with a mixture of original decor a...
 

Giraffe Center of Nairobi

 
Giraffe Center of Nairobi The AFEW (African Fund for Endangered Wildlife) Giraffe Centre is located in Langata, just outside Nairobi. The centre has been ostensibly set up as a breeding centre for the endangered Rothschild giraffe, but now operates conservation/education programs for Kenyan school children. There is good information on giraffes available here, and an elevated feeding platform where visitors meet the resident giraffes face to face. Hand feeding giraffes is an education in itself. You will see, close at hand, how they use their long, prehensile tongues to remove leaves from prickly acacia branches. The AFEW centre is also home to Giraffe Manor, a beautifully maintained colonial home, now an exclusive guesthouse. The centr...
 

Nairobi

 
Nairobi Nairobi Kenya s mile-high capital is only 90 mi/138 km south of the equator. Founded by the British little more than a 100 years ago, the city now has a population of more than 2 000 000.

The city is constantly alive, especially at night. Unfortunately, Nairobi has acquired a reputation of being a dangerous city and petty crime is rampant. Besides being a convenient place to t...
 

Central Highland Kenya

 
Central Highland Kenya Kenyas Central Provence is home to the countrys largest tribe, the Kikuyu. The highlands, composed of Mt Kenya and the Aberdare Range, are among the most fertile lands in the country. The first white settlers saw the agricultural potential of the area and grabbed much of the land, dubbing it the White Hightlands. This, of course, was once of the reasons the Mau Mau Rebelion broke out, and most of the fighting took place in the Central Highlands. Destinations in Central Highlands Nyeri Nanyuki Naro Moru Embu Nyahururu (Thomson's Falls) Isiolo Runyanjes Meru...
