You must visit the rescue centre if you visit Mt Kenya region. There is a lot of fun activities and you could learn a lot from there! Great place to visit!

Hands on with wildlife

1000ksh resident entry, make sure you get a guide as they will let you feed antelope, monkey and tortoise. The also let you stroke the tame leopard and buffalo.

Excitement galore
Feb 2021 • Family
The drive from Nanyuki Town isn't long at all and before we knew it we arrived at the zoo! And boy was it anything but a zoo! The animals we saw, some enclosed purely due to their nature, were simply amazing. We managed to see leopards and cheetahs to small antellops and everything in between! If you are in the area, definitely a must visit!

Our kids loved it here. Lots of animals to see and interact with. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Unfortunately the restaurant there is currently closed due to covid, so we had to go elsewhere. Other than that I'd highly recommend this place.

Volunteered for a day, to clean the cages and got a chance to feed a zebra, a lama and an ostrich at the same time.

The work here to protect the habitat and re- establish the forest lands is heartwarming. The inevitable clash between man and environment is being thoughtfully managed by engagement with the local people.

Little bit of paradise
Feb 2020 • Friends
A beau well maintained rustic cabin but with all the misconduct necessary. We stayed for a week but wished we could have stayed longer. Surrounded by Bongos and other wildlife.
