DESCRIPTION

Not far from Voi sits a little oasis tucked in the Taita Hills called Wundanyi. It is blessed with an amazing landscape far different than the rest of Taita Taveta.

Numerous trails criss-cross the cultivated terraced slopes around town, leading to dramatic gorges, waterfalls, cliffs and jagged outcrops.

You have the chance to stay in a homestay so that you can get a peek into local life, taste homemade food and get to know all hidden places you should visit.

Wake up the next morning by the chirping of the birds and stunning views. You have the chance to join one of the local guides on a hike to the huge granite Wesu Rock, walk through Ngangao Forest or climb Vuria hill where you will enjoy a picknick lunch with a magnificent view.

You also have the chance to visit the Kenyatta caves that are hidden in a small town just 2 km from Wundanyi. This is where Mzee Jomo Kenyatta stayed as one of the freedom fighters for x number of years. Charles Mlekenyi was a child back then and was serving Kenyatta and the others their meals. He has a wonderful story to tell and can show you many things that still remind of that time.

Price includes:

  • Accommodation

Location


I went to this little mountain escape in Taita-Taveta (30 min from Voi) and oh boy what is this a stunning place. Everywhere you have amazing views, tropical green is surrounding you while the road is slowly taking you up higher. I have visited the Kenyatta caves that are truly hidden and next to the house of Mr. Charles. Mr. Charles told me a lot about when he was a little boy serving Mr. Kenyatta while he was staying in the caves. You could drive to Wundanyi and then down driving around/over the mountain. A beautiful road trip. There are different things to do here so you can also stay for a couple of nights. A true hidden gem!
