Introduction

Nyeri is a welcoming and bustling Kikuyu market town. It’s as busy as the Central Highlands get, but unless you have a thing for chaotic open-air bazaars and the restless energy of Kikuyu and white Kenyans selling maize, bananas, arrowroot, coffee and macadamia nuts, there’s no real reason to linger for longer than it takes to plot your onward journey.
