  • Description


    This is Home stay, which is located in Bungoma County, just 2km from Bungoma town Centre.

    My young sister stays at home with mum sometimes but busier day time and my big sis she is a school teacher in a very remote school there, hence leaves too early and back too late at home, thus needing a company at home and also helping her with house chores and on her small vegetable garden too, as she likes cooking, be sure to enjoy great meals with her. Myself am busy working in the capital city (Nairobi) which is 10 hours drive to home, hence I visit her only after fortnight. She is such a nice charming old lady who is in her early 70s but lots of energy as one in 60s.

    We such a lovely big warm family.

    Being located strategically, volunteers during free time can go hiking, it so near mt. Elgon, a wonderful National part at 40 minutes drive, beautiful waterfalls within reach, free bicycle at your disposal and those who love children can visit the local school with my big sister where she teaches and have a couching and mentor-ship forum with them, not forgetting wonderful country walks too.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We got good experiences with Foreign guests so are used to having visitors join our family now and then.

    Respect family rule and we are conservative and modesty in the way we dress, hence expect the same from volunteers.

    Our home is non smoking zone, hence if you must you are allowed to go outside the gate to smoke, and be careful to read signs while in the streets too as kenya has smoking designated zones, its illegal to smoke anyway anytime.
