Any youth in Kitengela will tell you where Rosewall is located. It’s an investment by an individual who thought, instead of building a residential home within the estate, he/she should do a swimming pool hangout area instead. Wise person this one. Normal charge is Kes. 250 per adult and Kes. 200 per child. Foods within the range of Kes. 100 for a hot-dog to higher amounts for other dishes. Events are allowed during the day only. The pool is  big as you can see.

Opened in 2020 and with several billboards along Namanga Road, you will hardly miss GMC Place.

FANCY A COCKTAIL OR SOME QUICK JUNK?

Recently, Kitengela got it’s own mall, located centrally within the town; Kitengela Mall. It houses the famous Artcaffe (Kitengela is it’s 29th outlet) which in my opinion is perfect for a date night or just a chilled hang out with friends. It also houses Baus Optical, several clothes, beauty products and shoes shops and the largest supermarket within Kitengela, Naivas.

Kitengela also has the famous combo of three; Pizza inn, Chicken Inn and Creamy Inn. They are located within the town next to Kobil Petrol Station (now Rubis).

These two locations just after Yukos, Namanga Road, serve burgers, pizza and cocktails. So handy after a long work day or a lazy weekend.

THE FARTHER OUTSKIRTS OF KITENGELA ON NAMANGA ROAD

Kitengela has really developed and I see many adventure lovers head this way every weekend. Here are a few places in the farther outskirts of Kitengela one can unwind.

Fred’s Ranch, Isinya

The location is quite famous as it is owned by the radio personality Fred Machoka. I visited some time back and even had the opportunity to meet him. Read about it on themkare.com Fred’s Ranch Review. For more information, visit Fred’s Ranch Facebook Page

Enchula Resort

Located in the outskirts of Kitengela just before Kajiado. It’s quite a long drive as it is approximately 74kms (one and a half hours) from Nairobi. I found it really beautiful and tranquil. The view on the Namanga road just outside Enchula is mind calming. Find out more on their Enchula Resort Facebook Page

Masai Ostrich Farm

Located approximately 52kms from Nairobi, Masai Ostrich Farm remains one of the most visited locations in Kajiado County for a quick getaway. Visit sometime and enjoy ostrich rides and meals. Find out more on the Masai Ostrich Farm website.

Laviniah Farmhouse, Kisaju

Most of the above hotels have accomodation. However,if you are looking for a home away from home airbnb kinda stay, give Laviniah Farmhouse a shot. Laviniah Farmhouse is located in Kisaju. Approximately 50kms (one hour) from Nairobi. Find out more about them on Laviniah Farmhouse Airbnb profile

PARTY CLUBS

Here’s where to party and/or watch football around Kitengela.

You can club hop since the clubs are not so far from each other. Best clubs are just after Kitengela Town – Yukos Area.

famously referred to as the House of Rhumba and great Nyama Choma

POOL TABLE

Some of them being within night clubs. Others within the hood, with no name, in iron sheet shelters mostly. But trust me, that’s where the pros are at.

JUST A DRIVE

Some of us fancy a drive to unwind. If you are looking for just an open area to chill at that is not so far out of Kitengela, try EPZ.

There’s a clean clear road where not so many vehicles frequent. People use it to scate, jog, shoot videos, do photo shoots, go on walks, picnics, chill and enjoy the cool arena.

If looking for a long drive, Namanga Road will serve that. You can drive as far as Namanga – border of Kenya and Tanzania). It will take you two hours from Kitengela.

Am sure there’s more places to unwind, have a good time and meet people. Feel free to leave a comment of the same.


If you are yet to do these, y’all are welcome to explore “Dusty South” as many love to call it.


A few things to know about my town;
