Lerruat log: The Resort on a Hill
Lerruat log resort is situated on a hill at Kumpa, Kajiado county and it is 95.7 km from Nairobi along the Nairobi- Namanga highway. The resort is inclined uphill on approximately 1 km. It is also 3km from the highway and it's accessible through an all-weather road.
The property is owned jointly by three family members. The resort was established in 2013 purposely as a holiday home for the family but was later modified to be what it is today. The resort kicked off with 12 rooms for a period of two years but with the high demand for rooms by visitors, there has been a gradual increase to 50 rooms in 3 years’ time.
In an interview by Wuod Maya, Mrs. Diana, one of the directors at the resort, acknowledges the help of partners as well as friends' support. On the other hand, she cites finances as the major challenge towards achieving what the resort has been able to achieve so far.
