I’m a big fan of Laikipia county,it’s actually my favorite of the 47 county’s of Kenya. There is a lot you can do in Laikipia,lots of attractions and a whole lot of places to visit  like this .Trust me when you are done with them all,the county will have a special place in your heart too. Travelling is a great way to rejuvenate and through it we get to learn a lot.

A 42kms drive from Nanyuki town along Rumuruti road led me to this very beautiful place, Jambo Mutara Camp. At first i could have sworn i was lost. How is it even possible that such a beautiful place could be found in such a remote area in the middle of nowhere? I remember keeping on thinking i was lost or i had missed a junction while driving down the road. It’s one of those roads you take that makes you feel like nothing great really is found ahead. Its very common in Laikipia by the way. Most of the places that will leave you breathless are tucked in the middle of nowhere. I was relieved when i finally came across their signage by the road.

Located North of the ancient Aberdares Forest the camp overlooks the beautiful hills of Nanyuki and a lush farmland, which is ideal for nature lovers. The rooms balcony will offer you breathtaking views of Mutara Conservancy. The gallery below speaks it all,check it out

Livestock quenching their thirst,with the amount of heat around a sip comes in handy

Laying my eyes on this signage was such a relieve.

Running in the direction of the lodge i think what he was trying to say was “Karibu Mutara Camp Ray,let me show you the way” lol

I took this shot from the veranda leading to the bar. Down this staircase to the left leads to the swimming pool. I couldn’t stop but love the view which had a whole lot to do with the vegetation color.Mutara conservancy can be hot,i expected drier vegetation.I was simply impressed

Their luxury canvas tents offer the most unforgettable camping experience.The interior furnishing is impeccable and with their en suite bathroom trust me you won’t even think you are in a tent.If i were to call this a camping experience then i have to admit it’s one of the best i have had

And another plus about the camp is in the way it’s laid out,you never feel like you are crowded.

If you are looking for a place to escape to for a week end or even holiday away from the usual,somewhere quite,cool and serene,Jambo Mutara Camp is your place.If you love sun sets try a shot from the pool,thank me later. On my way out i was curious to know whether Jambo chester hotels has other facilities in Kenya and i was told they do,one in Kisumu  which i was told is cuter than Jambo Mutara ( i’ ll have to be the judge of that) and another in Watamu.
