Only 4 kilometers away from Bamburi Cement Factory, a small nature sanctuary in a completely unique “out of Africa” environment. Rain-fed ponds are inhabited by fish and birds. Large Doum Palm crowned by Leopard Orchids are scattered in the grassland.

We got married at Nguuni Sanctuary in February 2011. We had all the animals around us during our ceremony and even managed to arrange to have the Masai tribe with us for the whole wedding. Everyone involved were all lovely, highly recommend!
