It has beautiful scenery and great weather. Never too sunny, great place for hiking and great for travelling. Good source of water and electricity. However, there is barely any internet company here so using data is really expensive. It is also quite cheap since it isn’t a populous town. Neighbours are friendly and loving.

Limuru is a small town in the heart of Kiambu county approximately midway between Nairobi and Naivasha towns. It is a very cold place and temperatures could go as low as nine degrees Celsius. It is predominantly inhabited by Kikuyu people. It is also an agricultural town with large tea plantations.

Right in the heart of Kenya’s Central region is Limuru town. It is a very beautiful city with lush, green gardens and amazing clean air. My home has amazing tea plantations that contribute a significant portion of Kenya’s overall tea exports. The people are friendly and you’ll always have a helping hand. However, it is a very cold place and I advise anyone moving here to bring heavy clothing.
