My names Hellen and i have been working with Hidden Adventures for over three months now . I am a Kenyan citizen and was born and bred in Central Kenya on the foothills of the Aberdare mountains. Hidden Adventures has the advantage of being a UK based company but with people like me to safeguard and ensure your holiday adventure goes to plan. Wildlife and bird watching is popular in my country and we hope to take you to the best places.Kenya is rich is fruit for example the other day we went swimming where there was lots of mango There was a fine if you picked them unripe but if they were ripe they were free !) where you will be staying and where i live is near a big pineapple plantation too . I guess trying these fruits is different for you.If you like we can head to a market whilst you pass through Thika town.. welcome Kenya ..
Hi ,I have recently been exploring Thika town here in Kenya ,Thika is where our guests will be based before and after their eco experienced based in and around central region. Our two Thika hotels are comfortable and each quite different too. Thika Market is huge and is a short walk or Tuk Tuk ride and sells a variety of produce and items, part of the Market is for vehicle repairs and one area is for clothes manufacturing and food. The other day I stumbled across a sewing machine repair shop where old machine go to be revitalised by a man who’s family has been in that trade for the best part of a hundred years. The shop was rammed full of singer sewing of each . Close by his shop are a variety of tailors… They told me they had never seen tourists there and would like the interaction and business. A suit can be made for £35 including material trousers tailored for £11 Maybe worth a visit on arrival and departure ..I will try and add other places and people to visit in this area
