Please understand that this house is in the heart of the African bush and is ten kilometres from an urban area.
As you can see from the photographs, the house is double story with large windows that have no bars on them, sliding glass doors and two upstairs verandahs. Small children MUST therefore, be closely supervised at all times.
Please do not bring dogs with you. Mount Kenya Wildlife Estate has a policy of "No Dogs" as there are Leopards in the vicinity as well as small plains game which can harm dogs, if chased. Dogs are naturally very afraid of Leopards and of course, Leopards love to eat dogs which are easy prey.
Please keep the Front Door closed at all times. This will stop the monkeys, baboons, birds, impala and although unlikely, snakes, from entering. In addition there are wires on the windows to stop the Vervet Monkeys from entering the house. Be very cautious if you unlock the wires on the windows, since these monkeys will enter the house and wreak havoc!
When leaving the house, please remember to close the windows and draw the curtains. This is important as there has been an incident where an impala startled either by its reflection or perhaps not realizing that there was a solid barrier in its way, broke through a door, caused tremendous damage to the house and was so badly hurt, that it had to be destroyed.
When walking, please respect the wildlife and also stick to the paths and roads. If walking through long grass, please be aware that there are Pepper Ticks - tiny ticks that are not infectious, but their bite causes severe irritation to skin.
There are contact numbers for doctors etc. are in the book by the front door. Otherwise for medical issues, please contact Nanyuki Cottage Hospital: Tel: +254 62 2032207
Wifi and Satellite DSTV are provided.
