By the invitation of Lemon Valley Farm estate i got to spend 2nights 3days at the property sometime back last week and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. I needed the escape and Lemon valley is one of those places you escape to if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful and yet breathtaking environment to just relax and recharge your batteries . A place of solitude and tranquility surrounded by nature. A lifetime can be spent exploring Kenya but you’ll almost never come across what this place has to offer considering every now and then in this interconnected world of 2019 that’s not always as easy as it sounds plus the fast growing almost ubiquitous virtual world that is only ever a touchscreen away, we always find ourselves struggling to find that one perfect place where we can properly escape humdrum everyday life.
The farm commands an enviable perch on the lofty Kasambara Hills 4Kms from Nairobi-Nakuru Highway boasting panoramic views of Lake Elementaita and soysambu Conservancy. The breath-taking scenery is shared by the public areas and many of the cabins. From the moment i arrived at the farm, this being my second time, my eyes were constantly drawn to the postcard-like scenes below me just like last time i visited. It’s just beautiful.
Whether it’s a morning cup of coffee on the porch as the family readies for the great outdoors or the glow of the fireplace at night to warm your bones from an active day on the slopes and the cold evenings or a hearty healthy cooked dinner to refuel for the next day’s pursuits, Whatever your trip includes, nothing is better than having the amenities and comforts of home that this place has to offer while still enjoying the scenic beauty of lake Elementaita and its environs. Check this out.
Sitting around might not be so fun. There are a wide varieties of activities one can engage in. At the farm there is hiking. I remember struggling during my first visit trying to find the perfect spot to capture the sunset from. Well, if you are the kind that never seems to have enough of them,hike and get your shots from up the hill. I wasn’t lucky to get a good shot,the whether was too undecided. While at it you can have a farm tour. There is also swimming and oh,they have introduced a spa too yeah. Activities outside the farm include guided tours, sun downer by the lake,quad biking and horse riding.
It’s my hope that you’ve enjoyed today’s read and that i narrowed down your search for places to escape the world’s cares to.
