From $11

Has 10 furnished rooms in single, doubles and dorm. Favorable for all people of all walks of life at any age group. People around the area are friendly and social.

Kenya lies across the equator in east-central Africa, on the coast of the Indian Ocean. It is twice the size of Nevada. Kenya borders Somalia to the east, Ethiopia to the north, Tanzania to the south, Uganda to the west, and Sudan to the northwest. In the north, the land is arid; the southwest corner is in the fertile Lake Victoria Basin; and a length of the eastern depression of the Great Rift Valley separates western highlands from those that rise from the lowland

Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park.

A rugged, hump-backed outcrop of ancient rock jutting high above the Athi Plains and hazily visible from Nairobi, Ol Donyo Sabuk is a densely forested mountain known to the local Kikuyu as 'The Mountain of the Buffalo', and to the Maasai as 'The Big Mountain'. Just one road leads to its summit, which offers magnificent 360' panoramas over the Athi River, the pineapple fields of Thika and the snow-capped peaks of both Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya. Within easy reach of Nairobi, the lush vegetation and cool air of this compact and scenic National Park make for an ideal day trip or camping weekend.

The African buffalo.

A very common and much-photographed member of the 'Big Five' safari line-up, the African or Cape buffalo is closely related to the domestic cow and is the only native African cow. Generally docile, buffalo can be extremely dangerous when threatened or surprised and must be regarded with extreme caution, especially lone bulls or cows with calves. Easily identified the buffalo is stocky, black or dark brown, and features distinctive upturned curving horns that broaden at the base and meet over the forehead in a 'boss' shape. Intensely gregarious, buffalo form into herds of between 200 and 2000 animals. Voracious eaters (both grazers and browsers) they spend most of their 15-20 year lifespan consuming fodder to maintain their strength and stamina.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed there for ten days in July 2011. I had booked the appartment, which then turned out to be the whole wing on the upper floor (three or four bedrooms, separate bath and toilet. Jobcamp did organise a pick-up service for me at the airport. The taxi-driver (a friend of jobcamp) was very friendly, honest and reliable.

The jobcamp is being run by two or three women. They do their best to provide you with a clean and safe accomodation. The jobcamp is surrounded by a wall, which gives you the feeling to be in a separate entity, where you actually are. The location is about 20 km outside of Nairobi. If you have a car and are insofar independent from the matatus (minibuses), the place can be definitely recommended for those, who seek a safe and reliable accomodation at very low prices, and who appreciate the option to discuss the Kenyan social situation with people who can provide insight into their day-to-day experiences. (The car can be parked within the compound).

All financial transactions were 100% correct and underlined by a sound atmosphere of hospitality.

Should I return to Kenya, I will certainly try to book the Jobcamp guesthouse again.

It is highly recommendable for those who come to seek value for money outside of Nairobi (but with their own car) and/or seek to get a closer understanding of the social reality Kenyans are facing when they try to improve their livelihood in a decent way and astablish a small business.

I would definitely recommend it to northern NGOs or representatives of womens´organizations on their trip to their overland missions.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It is a bit out of town, but great for the price. The owner is very friendly, and the house is very nice. It is secure and hospitable, but just not easy to get to Nairobi. Otherwise it is a great place.
