The roads have also been expanded, and there are now highways connecting to different parts of the country passing through Kikuyu.

Machakos County, located in the eastern region of Kenya, is a promising investment destination with unique opportunities for investors from diverse backgrounds in a multitude of sectors.

The area is 64 km from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, making it an ideal place for investors to dig in.

Its strategic location is also ideal because it has roads connecting the busy Nairobi-Mombasa highway.

The transport connectivity provided by this vital road is a major plus for any business looking to move goods and services efficiently to key markets like Nairobi, Mombasa, and beyond.
There’s also a growing local economy as well as a supportive government that’s ready to support all the business investors ready to work with the county, be they small-scale businesses or large ones.

  • Kitengela

Real estate investment goes beyond buying apartments or houses to live in. That includes purchasing land you can sell later at a profit or even consider developing into a commercial or residential complex. Kitengela stands out as a perfect residence for investment given its steady growth and the number of people building and leasing homes.

  • Ruaka

Ruaka town has been growing steadily over the last few years and is now one of the most recognizable areas in the country and not in Nairobi County, with its poshy, classy suits from investors that have seen potential in the area.
Any investor looking for an area to invest in can then consider it because there's enough land to build on.
