Deep in the heart of Laikipia, one of Kenya’s most spectacular game viewing areas stands the perfectly restored, Mukima Manor House, with its twin gables, cedar framed windows and large, sweeping verandahs overlooking rolling lawns towards the private lake. In the distance, the snow-capped peaks of Africa’s second-highest mountain.
Nestled within 300 private acres of...

African bush and velvet lawns dotted with lavender and embellished with a shaded tennis court and oval swimming pools, this timber and stone Manor House could as easily stand in the home counties of England as it could in Kenya’s heartland….. except the windows reflect the jagged peaks of Africa’s only Equatorial volcano, Mount Kenya, or should you take an evening drive to one of the neighbouring conservancies, you'll be surrounded by elephants. Here amongst the wild fauna and flora, we offer a new intimate, immersive, and elevated holiday experience.



By booking Mukima you will be supporting sustainable tourism and conservation efforts.

Indulge in a memorable stay at Mukima Manor while contributing directly to vital conservation efforts. We are committed to sustainable tourism practices, the proceeds from the hotel help to protect the 300 acres of pristine wilderness that surround it. The Mukima Nature Sanctuary is 100% off the grid, harnessing the power of renewable energy sources to minimise our environmental impact. We avoid using all toxic chemicals and single use plastics. This aversion to toxins allows us to savour delicious meals prepared with fresh, organic ingredients, grown in our own kitchen garden and fruit orchard. 

Most importantly, your stay directly supports our ongoing 20-year rewilding project of 100 acres into indigenous forest. By choosing Mukima, you become a partner in protecting the rich biodiversity of the estate, ensuring a thriving habitat for the diverse flora and fauna that call it home. Together, we can create a more sustainable future for this remarkable ecosystem and be an example of what the future should look like in hospitality.

  • "Mukima house is quite spectacular and took our breath away the moment we drove in and caught the first glimpse. It was nothing like what we have experienced before! Massive gardens, beautifully decorated rooms (some with fireplaces and freestanding baths!), delicious well thought out meals, wonderful service, loads of activities to keep us and the children busy – it was literally the perfect escape!"

  • "The Mukima house is not only an exceptional property but with amazing service and attention to detail - you have plenty of choices for nearby game drives and hikes or as wonderful is relaxing by the pool, playing tennis or going for a lovely walk around the property. The staff were always on hand for any requests and with breakfast, lunch, tea , sundowners and dinner you can manage the day around mealtimes:) The main house has been so beautifully restored and furnished with all comforts and it really does feel like a true out of Africa holiday. Thanks for the amazing stay."

  • "Beautiful. Healthy. Historical.
    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!"
