For those who seek adventure, we highly recommend this three-in-one experience. We had the opportunity to go on a safari walk, stroll across a suspension bridge adorned with exquisite Kitengela glass pieces, and witness the captivating art of glass blowing at Anselm’s Kitengela Hot Glass.

Anselm’s Kitengela Hot Glass also provides a delightful cafe. However, if you prefer a more picturesque lunch spot or wish to beat the Nairobi heat with a refreshing dip in an outdoor pool, we suggest the Maasi Lodge. For a fee of Ksh 700, you can enlist a guide at the Maasi Lodge to accompany you on a safari walk to the Kitengela Hot Glass, and pay an additional entrance fee of Ksh 300.
