Claire and Rod's house is situated on the Laikipia Plateau, amidst the beauty of a 30,000 acre private cattle ranch. Claire and Rod designed and built themselves this magnificent Thai Colonial house which is positioned with views of Mt Kenya, the Loldaiga hills and the abundant riverine trees which flank the Nanyuki river. The house comprises of private courtyards where at night you may lie and look up at the stars and moon surrounded by burning candles and listen to the silence of the African night.

Here you can enjoy the sounds of the African night including Hyena and Scops owls. All the rooms are bright and airy with much attention given to ensure the comfort of the guests. Early morning tea and Kenyan coffee is brought to your rooms with freshly baked biscuits.

The cottage nestles within green lawns and sits a short walk from the swimming pool where guests can relax and enjoy the myriad bird life and striking views of trees and bush and peaceful sound of the river running nearby. Claire takes great pride in her kitchen and all meals are prepared to a very high standard using local ingredients and organically grown vegetables from the garden.

Much emphasis is placed on visitors joining Claire and Rod in their life at home allowing a more personal touch to guests visiting Laikipia. Peaceful walks and sundowners on the ranch with views of Mount Kenya and the plateau just a few of the activities on offer. Why not visit Rodís flower farm and see and understand how to grow roses on an industrial scale, providing much needed local employment.

With the neighbouring wildlife areas and Samburu a 20 min flight away there is ample opportunity to see game such as Rhino, Giraffe and Eland. For the more active, climbing and walking, and fishing on Mt Kenya by helicopter. Community projects and wildlife research on our doorstep, interesting and fascinating people all working to make Kenya a better place.

With the airfield a few minutes drive from the house Claire can both fly and drive you to places of peaceful sanctuary in one of the most beautiful spots Kenya.
