Top 5 Places You Can Visit in kikuyu Town

Kikuyu town, a municipality in Kiambu County, is only 20 minutes from Nairobi CBD and is accessible either through the Southern Bypass or Waiyaki Way.
Despite Kikuyu being a nice, cool area to reside in, there are also other areas where you can go and relax your mind on a weekend or after a long day.

Below is a list of areas that you can visit in Kikuyu Town.

  • Nachu Caves

Famously known as Ngurunga cia Njangiri (meaning Thugs Caves), Nachu Caves are located on Gatune Hills.

The caves are rocky and slippery.

The path to get here shifts from mud, bush, and shrubs to grazing fields as the Ngong hills come into clear view. This short and sweet adventure requires crawling on fours when descending with a touch of balance.

  • Goshen Restaurant

This restaurant is owned by missionaries who have preserved its original design. The wooden structure is decorated by indigenous timber beams that crisscross each other.

The color painted on them symbolizes peace and a feeling of calmness.

The locals call it ‘Banguru’ because of the high accent, when they should actually refer to it as Bungalow. It is really a nice place to chill and relax with a good meal and hospitality.
