Mukima Manor 


Deep in the heart of Laikipia, one of Kenya’s most spectacular game viewing areas stands the perfectly restored, colonial-era Mukima House, with its twin gables, cedar framed windows and large, sweeping verandahs overlooking rolling lawns towards the private dam. In the distance, the snow-capped peaks of Africa’s second-highest mountain.
The Mukima Experience

Set within 360 private acres of African bush and on velvet lawns dotted with lavender and embellished with a shaded tennis court and an oval swimming pools, this timber and stone Manor House could as easily stand in the home counties of England as it could in Kenya’s heartland….. except the windows reflect the jagged peaks of Africa’s only Equatorial volcano, Mount Kenya, or that should you take an evening drive to one of the several neighbouring conservancies, you can be surrounded by elephants within forty minutes. Here amongst the wild fauna and flora, we offer a new form of intimate, immersive, and elevated holiday experience.

  • "Mukima house is quite spectacular and took our breath away the moment we drove in and caught the first glimpse. It was nothing like what we have experienced before! Massive gardens, beautifully decorated rooms (some with fireplaces and freestanding baths!), delicious well thought out meals, wonderful service, loads of activities to keep us and the children busy – it was literally the perfect escape!"

  • "The Mukima house is not only an exceptional property but with amazing service and attention to detail - you have plenty of choices for nearby game drives and hikes or as wonderful is relaxing by the pool, playing tennis or going for a lovely walk around the property. The staff were always on hand for any requests and with breakfast, lunch, tea , sundowners and dinner you can manage the day around mealtimes:) The main house has been so beautifully restored and furnished with all comforts and it really does feel like a true out of Africa holiday. Thanks for the amazing stay."

  • "Beautiful. Healthy. Historical.
    There is something so special about the Mukima House. The staff were so kind, the food was delicious (we asked for a vegan menu!) and the views were incredible. It is now my favourite place in Nanyuki and I can't wait to visit their sister property - the Cabanas in Lamu!"
