Location

Meru County, Kenya

We have a wonderful warm and friendly neighbourhood. Mostly small holder farmers who's families have been there for generations. The Boathouse is in the middle of 360 privately owned sanctuary. We have wildlife and birds scattered about the property. You can go for walks and runs within the 360 acres but also take a short drive to one of the famous wildlife conservancies around us. Oljogi, Ol Pejeta, Lewa, Borana. There is lots to see and do.
