Shepard Huts, Nanyuki
The simply delectable Shepard Huts are located right opposite the Nanyuki airstrip, 10kms from Nanyuki town. The four Huts (Bramble, Oak, Holly & Ivy) were lovingly handcrafted in Nanyuki, based on a traditional Somerset shepherd’s hut design from the UK and come furnished with beautiful fittings, on authentic British Oak chassis with cast iron wheels. The huts all have added decks where you can enjoy the magnificent views and gardens and a bathroom to the exterior, adding a little more space to each hut. Holly and Ivy are positioned close together near to the swimming pool, and Bramble and Oak are close together, within walking distance of the other two.
Each hut can comfortably accommodate 1 – 3 people and offers a perfect retreat with stunning views facing Mount Kenya. A fridge, microwave, kettle & toaster is available in each hut but there are also some excellent restaurants and cafes right on your doorstep. If you don’t want to eat out we suggest cold meats, cheese & wine, or use of the communal barbecue facilities. There is also an amazing communal swimming pool at the premises.
Known as the gateway to the north, Nanyuki is ideally located for you to access the wonders of Laikipia, Shaba and Samburu. Nanyuki also offers a close base to explore the world-famous Ol Pejeta wildlife conservancy, to experience the Northern White Rhinos, chimpanzees of Sweetwaters Sanctuary, and the other abundant wildlife at one of Kenya’s foremost conservation zones. If you’re looking for more adventure, why not head into the forests around Mount Kenya and the Aberdare National Park and get lost in the forest trails and spot rhinos and giant forest hogs, or experience some of the best fly fishing in the country on Mount Kenya’s lakes or the rivers of the Aberdares. Or simply load the car with a few friends, or the family, and just take the weekend for yourself? Whatever your Nanyuki adventure is, we have a base for you.
