What comes into mind when you hear of a trip to Kajiado Town? Pack extra sunscreen? Carry a sun hat and biker sunglasses? Though very near to Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi, Kajiado is often overlooked by the local tourists. However, once you take the 90-minute road trip to Lerruat Log resort, you will always find an excuse to drive up there.

Here are 5 reasons to skip Naivasha or Elementaita and head over to Lerruat for a weekend getaway.

  1. The Meat Experience

Carnivores would know Kajiado is the home of the Kenyan delicacy – Nyama Choma. Thanks to the thousands of livestock owned by the local communities, Lerruat Log resort has a fresh supply of juicy steaks. If you would like a top cut or a T-bone, just order from any of the two onsite restaurants.

  1. The Wild Life Experience

No other county rivals Kajiado in terms of fauna and flora. A short two-hour drive from Lerruat Resort, you’ll get to Lake Magadi, a 104-sq.km soda lake. The rainbow colours of the lake comes from the flamingoes and pelicans which feed and nest on the shores of the lake.

The Nairobi hustle and bustle wears down the body and spirit. As such a trip to Lerruat can rejuvenate your mind.

Atop the famous Ebendera hill, you awake to a giant ball of unobscured sunshine, singing birds and a breeze that harmonizes the soul. The sunset lounge area is definitely the place to be with your chilled drink and no phone in hand.
