It’s a cold place and one should carry with them at least a jacket. It’s a secure place considering that the headquarters for Directorate of Criminal Investigation are located here. There is good infrastructure, in terms of good transport and communication including even wifi network. Generally Kiambu is a good place to live.

Moving to Kiambu town is exciting and it can be adventurous for a person who likes the countryside and its environs. Kiambu town is fifteen kilometres away from the capital of Kenya which makes it easy to access other services as required. The city can be cold in July through August and therefore one is required to have warm clothing if visiting during those months. The food eaten is local and can easily be found in the restaurants available.

Kiambu City is a rapid developing town; with great infrastructure and high level of security. People in this town are friendly thus adapting to the environment won’t be a problem. There are a great no. of tourist attractions such as ’14 Falls’. Don’t be left out in the exploration of of one of the newest and attractive cities in Africa.

The living cost is quite budget-friendly. A lot of basic stuff such as food and accommodations is affordable. Another good thing to be happy about is that the climatic condition of my city is super friendly. Something else to consider is there’s usually heavy traffic on most days, so one can consider to use Uber motorbikes other than cars.
