Forty-five minutes drive up the mountains near Voi, you will find the secluded and stunning village of Sagalla. It feels as if you drive into a fairy tale with lush green hills dotted with small houses.
Here you can meet the friendly people of Sagalla and especially Gibran, who was born and raised here. The landscape is different from dusty and hot Voi. It is so peaceful and serene with many butterflies.
Gibran can take you up for various hikes through the mountains, where you can learn how to cook traditional Kenyan food, see the local women dance, and maybe participate yourself! They also run their own cultural center to make leather sandals, bags, jewelry, and other items.
You can also find the oldest church in Taita Taveta County, 130 years old. It was built by Mr. Wray and still has kept some of the old furniture and items.
You can stay in the lovely homestay of Sylviah, where you get a peek into local life, which lets you truly connect with the Kenyan people and their culture. It will be a unique and memorable experience.
