I grew up in Nairobi, attended St John's Seminary School, where I planned to become a priest, but later changed my mind. After my high school, I joined Rutgers University in NJ for my undergraduate and recently completed my MBA(2012) from Kutztown University in PA. I currently reside in Allentown PA USA with my wife and daughter. I purchased this penthouse as a vacation property where me and my family stay while in Nairobi. We have spared no expense to make it as comfy as possible for my family and hopefully your family will enjoy it too!

FURNISHED PENTHOUSE IN LAVINGTON

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived from the airport at 9:00 in the morning the property gave the impression as a substantial development with a security gate guarding a larger inner courtyard. The unit is large with three bedrooms, two in-suites, a half bath, and large open eating, kitchen and living area. Well-furnished and very clean. As well, it is located close to Valley Arcade which has currency exchange, a bank and an exquisite little Italian restaurant. Given Nairobi's huge traffic problem, the unit is located close to James Gichuru Road which is a fast way over to Riverside Drive and then Uhuru Highway which cuts through the centre of Nairobi thus avoiding traffic jams on Ngong Road or Kenyatta Avenue. A tremendous advantage. It is also fast to Chiromo Road off James Gichuru leading out to the Rift Valley and such towns as Naivasha, Nakuru, Kericho, Eldoret and Kitale and on to Uganda. Everything works out well for location. The owner/manager George is very accommodating as he arranged for a rental vehicle for us and provided numerous timely responses to all our queries. There is no question that we would stay here again. The only small detail is that the kitchen tap needs repair as it is quite loose but Tony the caretaker now knows about this and it will be fixed. Al in all, a terrific apartment in a secure area of Nairobi with quick access to Nairobi centre using James Gichuru Road over to Waiyaki Way.

WE LOVED THIS HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. Everything was superb and Tony was a great help. The house was large, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The kitchen was well stocked. It was a nice, safe neighborhood, close to shops, restaurants and a supermarket. I enjoyed talking to the neighbors and the security guards. We would absolutely recommend this home to anyone.

• Nairobi National Park:

A safari tour in Nairobi National Park is a must when staying at Nairobi.

Nevertheless, you should not cheat yourself and miss a tour in the park and the chance for an up close look at the wildlife – including lion, giraffe, zebra, rhino, cheetah, ostrich and of course the Nyati – Swahili for buffalo.

The Langata Giraffe Centre is located on the edge of the Nairobi National Park. The Giraffe Centre is a sanctuary for the rare Rothschild’s giraffe. Here you can observe, hand-feed or even kiss the giraffes.

• Karen Blixen Museum:

Only about 15 kilometres from Nairobi you will find the Karen Blixen Museum.

Especially people from Denmark visit the place and house where the famous Danish author lived until 1931. The place became even more known after the film Out of Africa with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford.

The museum is one of the most popular sights in Nairobi. From the garden you can admire the wonderful view of Ngong Hills.

Experience the coloured glass art at Kitengela Glass.

Kitengela Glass is located opposite the Nairobi National Park. The owners of Kitengela Glass are also the founders and trustees at the Rudolf Steiner School Mbagathi. They have worked for and supported the school for many years.

The wildlife of the Masai Mara is extensive. Here you will find the so-called ‘Big Five’ of Kenya – buffalos, elephants, leopards, lions and rhinos – along with the Maasai people, whose pastoral lifestyle and colourful garb and culture have made them Kenya’s best known tribe.

The lake is located about 170 kilometres north east of Nairobi at an elevation of 1,754 m above sea level.
