Kerio View Hotel - Eldoret Hotels, Rift Valley Hotels and Lodges

Eldoret Hotels, Rift Valley Hotels and Lodges Kenya (Cottages) Show map

Description:

The small town of Iten is the administrative headquarters of Keiyo District. It is situated in the heart of the central Rift Valley of Kenya where most of the Kenyan athletes have their origins and where they do most of their training. There is no doubt that it is the performances of these athletes, which, above all else, has brought this region to the attention of the world. More and more of these visitors are from outside Kenya. For many, however, the training camps are too simple and lacking in the basic facilities. This is where Kerio View has proved to be a valuable asset by providing the clean water, the hot showers, the hygienic conditions and the variety of food that most consider essential. Our main objective in Kerio View is to ensure our guests get the maximal benefits of their days and weeks of successful training by generally providing all their basic needs according to their individual programmes so that they are free to concentrate on the main agendum, running ! KV (Kerio View) also serves as a social meeting place for athletes, coaches and agents, both local and international, where ideas and information are exchanged and, maybe, a few deals negotiated. Despite our rural setting, the internet connection and the satellite TV ensure our visitors have a link to home and up-to-date news about what is happening in the world of sports.

Location:

Kerio View is perched on the edge of the Kerio Valley escarpment -- a branch of the Great Rift Valley of East Africa. It offers prospects of the Tugen Hills and Tiati, the sacred mountain of the Pokot people. Down in the valley, and central to the panoramic view, is Lake Kamnarok, set in the middle of the Rimoi Game Reserve and fed by the waters of the Kerio River. Rimoi is a new reserve and hardly exploited.

Things to do:

For the kids A children's play area with swings, slides and sand-pit is available, so parents may relax knowing their young ones are happy and well supervised. We believe happy kids make happy parents !!! Outdoor Barbeque This is a favourite of many customers. Roast Kerio lamb or goat meat is a speciality and can be prepared in your own special outdoor area. Grass-thatched shelters called "El Niño" and "Monkey House" are very popular for barbeque venues and may have to be booked in advance on busy weekends. For a mouth-watering experience take the roast meats with a spicy sauce and fresh Kerio salad. And, if you have any room left, finish off with a dish of your favourite ice-cream. Walking and Orienteering There are many walking and hiking routes to chose from centred around Kerio View. A gentle stroll can be taken to the old Kamariny Stadium, 3 km away, where young, up-and-coming athletes are often to be seen in training. For the more fit and adventurous there is the chance to trek down into the Kerio Valley a descent of 1000m in 10 km which exhibits the great changes in climate and vegetation associated with changing altitude. An orienteering course, situated around the small town of Iten, was established some years ago by the International Orienteering Association.

Local Attractions:

Within the grounds of Kerio View itself you are very likely to see Rock Hyrax, Colobus monkeys and a wide variety of birds --- including Hornbills and the Hawks, Eagles and Kites which like to ride on the rising thermal currents of the escarpment. The very shy duiker live and breed in the bush thickets; they may occasionally be seen in the car headlights at night, or, very early in the morning, through the one-way glass of your cottage windows. Indeed, early morning is undoubtedly the best time of day at Kerio View. To see the clouds slowly rising from the valley as the sun climbs over the top of the hills and to see beyond those hills the distant tip of Mount Kenya (220 km away) is an experience you will never forget. It is particularly noted for very wild buffalo and elephant. Visitors have to be accompanied by a Wildlife Department ranger. There are also crocodiles in the river, but they are very wary and shy of people and not always easy to see. Bird life is abundant. For those interested in plants, there is much to find and see. The most obvious are the numerous Acacia species but be on the look-out also for rare xerophytes and plants with medicinal properties. Some examples are illustrated in Valley plants.

Getting There:

Kerio View is only 35 km from Eldoret town (Population = 200,000 ), which is one of the largest towns in Kenya and has all the usual urban facilities such as banks and supermarkets. It also has a small international airport; but, unfortunately, no direct flights from Europe and America. Overseas visitors have to take a local flight from Nairobi to Eldoret (taking about 1 hour), or travel the 300 km by road which takes about 6 hours and is not to be recommended for the elderly or those with a nervous disposition. The Nairobi - Eldoret flight is provided by Aero Kenya (www.aerokenya.com) and costs about Euro 65 (children half fare). Booking can be done in Nairobi airport or through any local travel agent. Local taxis or "matatus" are easily available to travel from Eldoret to Iten, but the journey may be a bit uncomfortable for those not used to the "matatu experience".
