Embu is endowed with a lot of fun-to-visit places. Think of a game reserve in the city where you get to see animals like Monkeys, birds and different species of butterflies. The city also has numerous restaurants and five star hotels that would make your visit enthralling. The city culture is also something that you can talk. The Embu people and their unique and African culture laced with a bit of modernity gives any visitor a chance to experience warmth and a sense of belonging. Here think of the traditional festivities.

Embu town is at the southern slopes of Mount Kenya. The climate is that of tropical rain forest with tea which is the main cash crop in the area. The farmers also do subsistence farming with some involved in intercropping and rearing of domestic animals such as cows, pigs, goats for domestic and commercial uses. The environment is cool to stay.

Embu is a relatively small city. The weather is not too hot during summer and not too cold during winter. The city is in the central part of the country. The cost of living in the city is affordable too.
