About the Homestay
My name is Brenda Ochieng and I am Married to Kevin Ochieng. Together we have 2 wonderful children a boy, Randy Jakes Ochieng who is 8 years and a girl, Janelle Amani Ochieng who is 5 years old. We speak English and Swahili and Randy our son speaks a little of french. We live in Kenya, Nairobi city in an estate called Langata. Langata is 5 minutes away from the Nairobi National park and 30 minutes away from the city center. We are also 6 minutes away to the best restaurant one would ever visit and a huge tourist attraction The Canvior restaurant. It is known for best serving game meat and it famous drink 'Dawa' We live in a 3 bed roomed house with a living, room, a kitchen 3 toilets and two bathrooms. We also have a compound both at the back and front of the house.
We are a great family that enjoy hosting we have since hosted for the past 5 years! we have received guest from Europe, U.S.A, Asia, Australia and Africa. We speak English and Swahili but our son Randy learns french in school. We love and enjoy hosting and whenever we have no guest at home we feel there is something missing. We give full support to our guest in terms of advice for vacation, showing them around and also advicing them on what is right and what is not. We also teach them our culture and stand by them in the case of culture shock. In Kenya you will collect your VISA at the airport and we would love to know your arrival details in advance so that we can pick you up from the airport. We also work with alot of youth so you will have a great time to hang out with us because you get to learn our culture and make friends. We give you an opportunity to visit the largest slum in Africa which host almost 1,000,000 people. We will give you a history of our country and explain to you how our government works. Any help you will need we will be there to help. Welcome to Kenya!
