About the Homestay
I live in Lang'ata, about 25 minutes from the CBD and 5 minute walk to the Nairobi National Park. The closest mall is the Galleria Mall, about 10 mins drive. Also close is the famous Carnivore Restaurant - 15 mins drive.
My house is a 4 bedroom maisonette within a gated community , but also in its's own compound. I have 3 extra bedrooms. 2 are en- suite with hot water shower, the 3rd has access to a bathroom without hot water but a shower head all the same. I have a large kitchen, and a spacious living room with a dining area.
I have a dog - a Spitz-Terrier who loves being petted.
