Kenya’s new ‘glamping’ experience

What you need to know:

  • The glampsite sits on a 33 acre farm in the south-eastern corner of Laikipia, about 235 km from Nairobi.
  • Scattered across Sieku, too, are three bell tents and a Touareg tent, which altogether can sleep 12 to 14 people comfortably.
  • On clear mornings and evenings you can also see Mount Warges, the largest mountain of the Mathews Range, and the rounded cliffs of Mount Ololokwe.
  • To the south, Sieku also offers breath-taking views of Mount Kenya.

I first came across the term “glamping” – short for glamorous camping – in 2014.
