Answers

Thanks for asking about Nyeri. There are so many things one could do and enjoy in this place. First, there is great wildlife both in the Aberdare and Mount Kenya. Then the scenery around the highlands is just… breathtaking. The people are friendly too and a tourist would find it the best experience if they stopped to interact with them or just visit the many children's homes for various charity missions.

Lets site an example in Naivasha, the cool breeze along the lake region is quite humorous you just need to sit and relax, doing this will create a memmory that you will never forget.other activities along these region include fishing, camping, boat riding all these combined create a wonderful momment. and the other two regions have great scenaries especially mountains and agricultural activities. if you would like to book or need more information on the subject visit )
Naivasha is the ideal place for a nice weekend get away (for instance, if you are living in Nairobi). Pack your camping equipment or book a banda at one of the campsites along the shores of Lake Naivasha. Activities include: boat ride on the lake, visit to Crescent Island (where the movie Out of Africa was shot), visit to Hell's Gate national park (where you can gamedrive, walk or mountainbike), bird watching, hiking, just chilling with your friends on the campsite (do not forget to organize a fire and bring your own meat to choma - also do not forget to bring a (foot)ball so you can play around with our friends).
Enjoy!
Nyeri is a great place to relax and enjoy Kenya's highlands. Its a great jumping off point for the Aberdares, Mt. Kenya, and a few of the Southern Laikipia game ranches, like Ol Pejeta and Solio. All of these places have great wildlife, beautiful vistas, and plenty of accommodation options.
Naivasha is great for it's close proximity to Nairobi. It's only about an hour or an hour and a half's drive from Nairobi, and has a wide range of attractions. The lake itself has many great places to stay, with access to the lake for boat rides, birdwatching and fishing. You can also visit Hells Gate National Park, Mt. Longonot national park, Crater Lake (a small lake inside a volcanic crater), and Kongoni private game reserve. If you're up for camping, Hell's gate is probably the best option. If you want a more luxury tented camp experience, Kongoni and Crater lake are excellent. At Mt. Longonot, one cannot stay overnight, but a hike to the top, and around the crater is well worth a day trip.
Machakos is a good place to stop and relax for Nyama Choma and great scenery. One can also go a little farther down the road to Lukenya hill, for hiking, rock climbing, camping, etc.

Hope this helps you out a little. Don't hesitate to message me for more options or questions about specific places.

one place i consider a must visit is in Machakos. a place that has defied the law of Gravity. go there and see it your self water running uphill! ..the tenth wonder of the workd!!!!!
Nyeri: Nyeri in close proximity to Aberdares national park, a great view point up the hill. it might be slow in terms of night entertainment but the close proximity to Nanyuki and Karatina enhances this town attractiveness. Nyeri is generally safe. Nyeri can be an ideal base for tours around the southern, eastern and western parts of mt. Kenya region. Accommodation is generally affordable and good.Keep in mind this is the Pilgrimmage town for all scouts and girl guides. Remember Baden Powell?

Machakos: Machakos is another very centrally located and a base for major attractions within the region of eastern province. For starters, this is the original capital city for Kenya. The geography of this region is amazing. Take a road trip to Wote and you will be amazed by the undulating terrain. God did something here. its like a replica of the great rift valley.Machakos was originally named masaku in honour of the paramount chief of this region going by the same name.

Naivasha: Formally the Happy valley and still is. Naiivasha is becoming one of the fastest growing centres for leisure, fun and adventure. If you wanna let it all go, do it in Naivasha. Relax, indulge and make merry. Hells gate park awaits. its good for hiking and biking. Do a boat ride on the lake. visit the flower farms. go as far as Nakuru. Night life in Naivasha is at all times high.
Nyeri has many good hotels overlooking very beautiful landscapes..You can see Mount Kenya from Nyeri Town...Machakos also has good getaway places in the Bundus...Naivasha is close to Lake Naivasha (Home of Flamingoes)...Mount Longonot and Hell's Gate National Park is near Naivasha...Making your trip to Masai Mara from Naivasha would be very convinient...
Nyeri,very cose to the aberdares,the scenery is wonderful and the hotels like outspan provide good accomodation.if you want to know about QUEEN ELIZABETH'S connection to kenya just walk to the tree tops and you'll be told everything and the events that led her to be crowned Queen.Nyeri also holds the graves of THE POWELL COUPLE "FOUNDERS OF THE SCOUTS/BROWNIE MOVEMENT".YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED.
