After you have settled in Kenya for slighlty more than a year and safaris no longer has the strong hold on you, a short day trip to the outskirts of Nairobi would be just the perfect
weekend plan.

I was quite reluctant initially when I was asked to join my friends for lunch at the Tree Trout Restaurant somewhere near the Nanyuki airstrip. The journey takes about 2.5 hours from Nairobi city center and the thought of a 5-hour return journey just for lunch was not that inviting. However, I did enjoyed my lunch and the serenity of the environment.

The restaurant is situated 100m off the main Kiganjo -Nanyuki Road on the Burguret River. Look out for the huge fish bone signboard.

The interesting part of this restaurant is that, it is actually built around the huge sacred fig tree (which is more like top of the tree) and fresh grilled trout from the trout ponds beneath the tree will be served for lunch.

After lunch you could move up to the patio and enjoyed the environment over a cup of coffee or tea which I find it extremely relaxing.
There you go...another pole-pole (slow) relaxing weekend...
