जगह
As befits much-talked-of people or places, it is simpler, more harmonious than could ever be expected.
At the head of the valley is a mountain, Mount Kipipiri, joined by a cedar-covered saddle to the Aberdare escarpment, which slowly,effortlessly dies in a lazy slope towards Thomson's falls. The escarpment, wood covered and rugged green, leafy, mysterious,abruptly loses its feet in the grassy plain of great undulations slowly subdued. The area around Wanjohi Valley is Bushi, Miharati, Ndemi, Kariamu and Olkalou; stretching upwards to Lord Baden Powell’s grave and downwards stretching to Thompson’s falls with the weather of a sleepy English village.
The view of Happy Valley to the south as you climb the escarpment and Lake Ol Bollosat to the north, AMAZING. In Shamata, which in Maa language means ‘high place’, this cold place is to the east of Happy Valley. If there’s something these settlers knew well, it was choosing locations. The view that these houses offer is simply breathtaking.
In this décor once lived a restless crowd of humans, hardly colonists -wanderers perhaps, indefatigable amusement seekers weary or cast out from many climes, many countries. Misfits, neurasthenics, of great breeding and charm, who lacked the courage to grow old, the stamina to pull up and build anew in this land.
ON THE PATH OF GHOSTS HAPPY VALLEY
While the beautiful Kenyan highlands attracted mostly the British, there were other settlers from many other European countries, as well as Boers from South Africa, and even Americans. Maverick camp Rondavels and Homestay hugs the slopes of Aberdare ranges, barely 156 Km North East of Nairobi, in Wanjohi Happy Valley.
Wanjohi Valley lies on the slopes of Aberdare ranges, near Aberdare National Park, east of the Great Rift Valley.
The area around Wanjohi Valley is Bushi, Miharati, Ndemi, Kariamu and Olkalou; stretching upwards to Lord Baden Powell’s grave and downwards stretching to Thompson’s falls with the weather of a sleepy English village.The valley is famous for hosting the so called Happy valley set whose height of influence was in the late 1920s.
If there is something otherworldly lit other than the Happy valley story, it is the Wanjohi valley landscape. The view of Happy Valley to the south as you climb the escarpment and Lake Ol Bollosat to the north, AWESOME. In Shamata, which in Maa language means ‘high place’, this cold place is to the east of Happy Valley. Here, pioneer settlers, also well-known as the Happy Valley lot, built elegant colonial houses. If there’s something these settlers knew well, it was choosing locations. Spend afternoons doing village walks and visiting nearby shopping centers/ market. Enjoy evening at the fire place with a talk from the old village men narrating the good old days of Happy Valley, how the Wall Street recession of 1920’s led to decline of agri-tourism in this area and other mesmerizing village stories.
The location is ideal for family outings, executive meetings, team building and hot lunch spot for the Aberdare Ranges and Mt. Kipipiri hikers.

यहाँ की लोकेशन

Nyahururu, केन्या

The area around Wanjohi is Bushi, Miharati, Ndemi, kariamu and Olkalou. The area around Naivasha was one of the first to be settled by white people and one of the hunting grounds of the hedonistic Happy Valley set. The area also includes Thomson's Falls. Geoffrey Buxton, the first colonial farmer in the area, had moved up from the dry arid Rift Valley with its meagre rivers and a relentless dusty wind that gave Gilgil its name. And so, after finding his ideal farming country, he called this new haven 'Happy Valley'. Happy Valley was the name given to the Wanjohi Valley in the Kenya Highlands, where a small community of affluent, hedonistic white expatriates settled between the wars. While Kenya's early colonial days have been immortalised by farming pioneers like Lord Delamere and Karen Blixen, and the pioneering aviator Beryl Markham, Happy Valley became infamous under the influence of troubled socialite, Lady Idina Sackville, whose life was told in Frances Osborne's bestselling The Bolter. The era culminated with the notorious murder of the Earl of Erroll in 1941, the investigation of which laid bare the Happy Valley set's decadence and irresponsibility, chronicled in another bestseller, James Fox's White Mischief. But what is left now? In a remarkable and indefatigable archaeological quest Juliet Barnes, who has lived in Kenya all her life and whose grandparents knew some of the Happy Valley characters, has set out to explore Happy Valley to find the former homes and haunts of this extraordinary and transient set of people.

With the help of a remarkable African guide and further assisted by the memories of elderly former settlers, she finds the remains of grand residences tucked away beneath the mountains and speaks to local elders who share first-hand memories of these bygone times. Nowadays these old homes, she discovers, have become tumbledown dwellings for many African families, school buildings, or their ruins have almost disappeared without trace - a revelation of the state of modern Africa that makes the gilded era of the Happy Valley set even more fantastic. A book to set alongside such singular evocations of Africa’s strange colonial history as The Africa House, The Ghosts of Happy Valley is a mesmerizing blend of travel narrative, social history and personal quest.
Depending on the season, you may participate in milking, planting, and weeding, harvesting or land preparation. Grazing and cooking are part of the shared responsibilities.

Enjoy evening at the fire place with a talk from the old village men narrating the good old days of Happy Valley, how the Wall Street recession of 1920’s led to decline of agri-tourism in this area and other mesmerizing village stories.
Besides the fame with the world, this area was the bedrock for battle for independence. -Gatibaru caves, Caves of motor, Caves of posta, Dedan Kimathi cave, Kanyoi cave, Queens cave were among the hideout for Maumau during the struggle.
