We stayed 2 nights in the boathouse. It was amazing. The clear view of mount kenya is wonderful. The lake is right in front of the boathouse. You can have a ride. The full board option is just excellent with tea time and bittings included. Highly recommended for a romantic weekend.
Great stay. Lovely home very well maintained with lovely view of Mt Kenya. Its a very serene and charming property which is pristinely maintained. Food was great. Staff were super helpful and helped us pull off a wonderful engagement for my sister!!!
We have stayed at Mukima House several times in large groups and most recently used the house to host our wedding. Mukima is a one-of-a-kind place to share with family or friends for a few days - a unique historic Kenyan building with stunning cedar wood and stylish details, a fantastic sweeping lawn to enjoy with views of Mt Kenya always on the horizon. The property is a microcosm of the Laikipia area - with grassland, wetland, bush and forest all in a few hundred acres. Evenings are spent along the dam wall watching the birds fly in, and mornings walks or runs around the trails through the bush before breakfast. You book the whole house and arrange catering with the team to your taste - they are super helpful, cook up a feast every meal and will help arrange trips in the area if needed. There is lots to do in Laikipia and this is a good and very comfortable base for excursions! Asanteni sana to the team who hosted us, and we look forward to our next visit!…
My husband and I had our wedding here on New Year's Eve and it was simply magical. The team went above-and-beyond to make it an unforgettable time. This included the wedding itself, but also the day before, where they helped us organize a game drive and sundowner for 50+ of our guests, most of whom traveled from the U.S. and UK to celebrate with us. It is really like a second home to us and cannot recommend it enough for any special event where you want people to be together in an intimate setting. We continue to go back, staying in the boat house just the two of us. Truly one of Kenya's most special properties.
There is something so special about the Mukima House. The staff were so kind, the food was delicious (we asked for a vegan menu!) and the views were incredible. It is now my favourite place in Nanyuki and I can't wait to visit their sister property - the Cabanas in Lamu!
