Growth of Nanyuki Hotels and Nanyuki Town
Nanyuki is the capital of Laikipia County, serving as Mount Kenya’s connection to the Great Rift Valley as well as a quaint but up-and-coming town. Founded in 1907, ever since then Nanyuki has been increasing in size both in economic terms and the number of luxury Nanyuki hotels.
The 1930s saw the town build a railway to link them and nearby Nairobi. What makes Nanyuki notable, though, is that this town serves as a base for the Kenya Air Force and provides a training area for the British Army.
Not to be outdone though, this is far from a simple military town. Game parks, conservancies, ranches, and luxury Nanyuki hotels also make it a central hub for activity.
There over 40 different places to stay in Nanyuki, ranging from 120-room safari clubs to 8-room cattle lodges.
Ol Pejeta Conservancy – Nanyuki Hotels
The Ol Pejeta Conservancy prides itself on upholding three pillars; guardianship, innovation, and authenticity. Guardianship is built upon the foundation of safeguarding every species on their conservancy and making sure that all animals thrive, not just survive. Innovation is what drives the company, leading both their customers and their clients to envelop the mindset, especially where conservation is involved.
Authenticity is what they strive for, providing natural experiences with the local wildlife, while at the same time protecting that wildlife. With many activities to choose from, perhaps the most notable are lion tracking and dog tracking; imagine driving up to a lion pride and being up close and personal with one of the world’s greatest predators. Ol Pejeta also provides information on keeping safe during these expeditions and has a strict code of conduct to ensure the safety and well-being of all visitors.
