The Area

Nothing is wasted!


Even the smallest shards are reused, first in sun-catchers then mosaics and finally re-melted in the bead hut to form the spun beads that have become famous as being the only glass beads made in East Africa, where the famous Masai beadwork comes from. The recycled bead shower curtains are popular. The place is situated in a particularly dry spot of the semi-arid plains south of Nairobi just beyond the National Park.



Animals - wild and tame - are everywhere.


Dogs, ducks, geese, peacocks alongside leopard,  hyena, lions, baboons, Sykes monkeys, bushbabies and a million hyrax. And the occasional pythons that regularly feed on the poultry all abound.


As we always say “Never a dull day!”
