Being born and brought up in the serene environment of Kericho,we always found it odd for friends and relatives calling us to ask if they can come over and spend a few days with us. Accomodating them was a struggle but we always tried as best as we could because we love company.This need to fulfill guest desires led us to the idea to run our own restaurant. The family run business began with the desire to give travelers a nice and quiet place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the forest,listen to the chirping of birds and relieve the stress from the hustle and bustle of daily life. With a beautiful piece of land overlooking the scenic Kimugu River tucked away in the rolling hills of tea a dream was realized.Situated on the outskirts of Kericho town, just a 500 meters drive off the Moi highway there lies your travel destination.We understand life can take a toll and we know you deserve a break where you let us do the work while you relax and enjoy.Come pop in for a cup of chai and experience the magic for yourself.
Standing at over 3000 feet above sea level,we are blessed with plenty of rain and sunshine,fertile fields and healthy livestock.Most of the town survives on farming and we all know that agriculture is the backbone of our economy.
The town is strategically located along Kenya's western tourism circuit with acess to Lake Victoria,The Maasai Mara National Park and Ruma National Park.
Settlement at Kericho was started in 1902 by British Settlers,the town is home to the Kipsigis People known world wide for their long distance athletics.
The town prides itself with Africa's largest Sikh Temple and the second largest Catholic Cathedral in Kenya.
