Enjoying picnics in kilome..


Great views, Super FRESH Air!! and steamed goat meat from Ksh400 a kilo – beat that!!


Rock 14111 – Gods work or?


First this guide I was given is “supposed” to be illiterate but will challenge your best accountant about their integrity with figures – CEOs he is a must meet if your company figures don’t add up!
Now back to rock ‘14111’, yes it does exist a rock with natural numbers clearly written on it. Who wrote on it God or someone who had too much time & energy? That’s the question everybody asks until you see the writing


In the Above photo you can barely see the 41 on the rock 14111.
To get here go down mombasa road 100 south of Nairobi, turn left at ‘Salama’ go about 4 kilometers on tarmaced road upto a small township known as Maiani. Ask for the turn off to kamuthini fresh air/Kenze on your right. If you are using public means get into a vehicle going to Nunguni from opposite Salvation Army church Hqs near OTC in Nairobi downtown (14 & 50 seaters available). If hired they can drop & pick you at day end from site (600-800 return fare). Alternative get into one as a normal passenger and ask to be dropped off at Maiani, then take/hire a bodaboda (motorcycle) to Kenze ‘athusi’. From here request for a guide from Kenze Community Forest Association.
For those with private means turn right at Maiani (ask for the right road to Kenze at shops). This will take you past Kamuthini fresh air(making a stop to take in the panaromic views all the way to kajiado). Proceed till you get to the next small shopping center where you will enquire Kenze Forest Community offices (right next to rd). Here you’ll enquire for a local guide and parking.
For both those using public and private means an entry fee is applicable plus a separate guide fee to rock 14111.
Superb outing for sight seeing, outdoor group meetings (youth & prayer groups), family, individuals with splendid views like


..and the Kwawatingila Valley. Views of Mt.Kalembwani, Kyulu Mts and Mt Kilimanjaro on clear days/most evenings also possible. Also those seeking photography.
Hikes, picnicking, or riding bicycles especially for your young ones is pleasant! For the energetic a visit downhill to old hyena cave’s or kilombo/Kalombo rock shelter
Food, like chapatis soft drinks etc can be gotten at Shops near entry. Goat or mbuzi for Choma can be pre arranged from Ksh3500 for group of about 10 people [tel:0722891689 by Thursdays] delivered on site. Kuku choma (kienyeji chicken can also be arranged plus firewood).
