Welcome to Limuru, Kenya!

Tucked into the highlands on the eastern edge of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, the town of Limuru is known for both its beauty and as home to some of the top-producing team farms in the world. Despite being only 30 minutes’ drive from Nairobi, Limuru’s lush, temperate and picturesque setting is certain to leave Pathways guests feeling a world away from the bustling  streets of the capitol.

While the area is historically colonialist, there has been a big push by local organizations in the last two decades to restore Limuru’s biodiversity and ecosystems to their pre-colonial state—most notably by Plants for Life International and the Brackenhurst Learning Center. In collaboration, the two Limuru-based organizations have worked to convert 60 acres of silent eucalyptus plantation back to indigenous forest. Over the last 19 years, their efforts have successfully restored 40 hectares of indigenous forest with 1,000 native species of trees and plants, resulting in major positive impacts on the area’s biodiversity—including the return of mammalian, avian and insect species not seen in the area in over 60 years.

We look forward to welcoming you to Limuru!
