The welcoming and bustling Kikuyu market lies in the Central Highlands of Kenya. The town is set approximately 20 km from Mount Kenya National Park. About fifteen kilometers out of Nyeri on the opposite side to Mt. Kenya is the Aberdare National Park. Close to the city are several privately owned ranches, many of which also serve as private wildlife sanctuaries like Solio Ranch Ol Pejeta Conservancy and Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.
