Nyahururu is one of Kenya's foremost tourist destinations at 2360m above sea level. With gorgeous waterfalls, safari tours and great hotels in the nearby area, people come from all over the world to enjoy what the city has to offer.
Nyahururu is mainly an agricultural town with a focus on maize, potatoes and flowers. Additional economic activities include tourism and banking services. The small town is a pitstop for voyagers to Maralal as the accommodation is good value for money and the fuel prices are more affordable than in the Northern part of Kenya.
When you arrive, Nyahururu offers plenty to do resulting from a great base to explore some of Kenya's natural attractions. For example, the town is close to the Aberdare National Park where you can spot rhinos, elephants, warthogs, buffalo and sometimes even leopards and hyenas.
There are also some stunningly beautiful natural features to visit, including the Thomson Falls on the Ewaso Ng'iro river. There aren't many more relaxing tourist destinations in East Africa.
If you'd like to visit Nyahururu, the closest airport is Nanyuki Airport, about 70 miles away. From there, the best option is to rent a car or take either a Matutu (minibus) or a regular scheduled bus, which should take around 3 hours.
For travellers that enjoy a road trip, the most scenic route is the Nakuru route which cuts through Subukia valleys, hilly farmlands and dense forests.
