Relaxing in Murang’a County

Riverfront Private Residence derives its name from its situation on an old river bed. The river is now long gone, but it leaves evidence that it once was. Fertile soil, for example. I spent last weekend at Riverfront and it was a revitalising time away from the city. I vlogged it all, of course (here). Plenty a-lazing was done! Here’s a little about Riverfront.

Rooms and facilities

All rooms are at least double rooms, with either two single beds or a queen sized bed. They are all en-suite, meaning you don’t have to share bathrooms, nasty-dorm-style.

The dining and lounge area are homely and cosy, making them a popular chill spot for drinks at night.

Max occupancy (sharing rooms): 25 people
Occupancy (not sharing): 15 people
Conference facility: There is a conference room available with a seating of about 30 people.
Safe premises: There is a perimeter wall and a night guard for extra security.
Parking: More than enough.


Rates are available on request. Packages can be negotiated depending on what each guest /group of guests requires. It is ideal for day conferences, weekend bookings etc. For budget travellers, you can negotiate a low price if you bring your own food, bed linen etc. There’s an in-house cook to make your meals should you bring your own food, as we did.

How to get there

The residence is situated in Mukuyu (Murang’a county), 400 m off the Kambirwa (C71) road. It is about 1 hour drive from Nairobi CBD.

If using public transport, ask the driver to drop you at Jambo Village, then contact management for further directions. the residence is only about 400 m from the main road (C71).


The lawn and gardens, set on about an acre, are beautiful and make for a good barbeque, book or games spot.

On the grounds, one can spot squirrels, monkeys and a number of bird species. My one regret was that I did not carry my zoom lens to take photos of birds. Next time, I suppose.

Murang’a is also less than 30 minutes drive from Sagana, where one can go bungee jumping, white water rafting and zip lining.
