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 like Thomson falls just to mention a few 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. A 42kms drive from Nanyuki town towards Rumuruti led me to this very beautiful place, Jambo Mutara Camp.At first i thought i was lost,i never could have imagined such beauty was actually nestled in such a remote place.Driving down that road seemed like i was heading nowhere good,difficult roads do lead to beautiful destinations after all. 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

On a lucky day you’ll catch the elephants drinking water from the water pool behind me and the best part,you can catch this straight from the pool,fantastic!

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.
