Our Animals


Situated across the gorge is the Nairobi National Park. Very close to Kitengela area you can frequently see wild animals like zebras, giraffes, antilopes and buffalos.And sometimes during the night, you can hear the roar of lions or caugh of a leopard.Little hyraxs are living directly in the gorge behind the swimmingpool and are kind and cute little neighbours. Recently they hav invaded the compounds and live in all the houses, leaving their tell-tale smell and droppings.
The kitchen bushbabies in the ceiling are a joy to watch on an evening if you don’t mind wildlife over your head whilst dining.Our baboons however are less cute but numerous and very cheeky.


Every animal is welcome at Kitengela.
You will find different domesticated species of animals at Kitengela.
