Nanyuki - Kenya

Nanyuki is a bustling little town pretty much on the equator. The British Army has a base here as well as the Kenya Air Force meaning there are plenty of great restaurants and hotels in the area. Nanyuki is also the access gate for Mt Kenya and the Laikipia Plateau, making it a good starting point for many trips.

Nanyuki means ‘place of red soil’ in the Maasai language. It is a lovely bustling town and a great place to stop and enjoy lunch before continuing on your way north, starting your hike in Mt Kenya NP or start the dirt road journey to your destination on the Laikipia Plateau. On the road just south of Nanyuki you will find the signs to indicate you are crossing the equator, always a great spot to take a photo.

Use Tripindigo to book your cheap flight to Nanyuki and explore Mt Kenya NP or the Laikipia Plateau with its many hidden gems.
