The Eastern Province region
The Eastern Provence of Kenya is close to the vast Mt Kenya Forest and lies within close proximity of the Meru National Park famed for the Conservationists Joy and George Adamson of 'Born Free' as well as Lewa Conservancy well known for the conservation efforts on endangered species. It enjoys moderate temperatures throughout the year with rainfall in the months of March - April and October - December. Meru County is a rich agricultural District and is one of the top producers of quality Kenya Tea and Coffee.
The town itself is a vibrant town and is easily accessible by road or air as it is close to the towns of Nanyuki and Isiolo which both do have an airstrip and a regular scheduled flight from Nairobi the capital city
The town of Meru lies along the Equator which makes it a centrally located hub for the farming community, business and an growing educational sector. The spectacular Mount Kenya Forest hugs the town of Meru on all sides and the presence of two sacred lakes within a 30 minute drive makes it a worthwhile visit. The Sacred Lakes of Lake Nkunga and Lake Thai offer a glimpse of how the original Meru dwellers worshiped the mountain god and revered these sites over a 100 years ago. Meru has one of the highest production of milk in the country and a visit to one of the many Milk Bars is a must while in the area to taste the true taste of Kenyan milk, yoghurt and curdled milk. There are wonderful forest trekking paths as well as fresh mountain waterfalls to admire in this beautiful part of the country too

"Home away from Home"
The love and detail that as been put into this home is felt from the moment you enter the gates. We drove up to the end of the drive and entered the compound and just felt like we'd entered a little paradise. The housekeeper was there to greet us with freshly squeezed juices and tea, we felt very welcome. The beds are just what we hoped for and there was plenty of space and a warm fireplace for the evenings.....just what we needed for a few days stopover!
