Getting AroundLoresho House is situated in the greater Loresho Estate in Nairobi City County. The estate comprises - among non-gated areas - three main gated communities: Loresho South, Loresho North and Kaumoni. We are in Loresho South, and members of the Loresho South Residents Association. Walking around Loresho Estate is ordinarily safe. Within our community, you can normally walk, jog and run from dawn to dusk, since the gates are manned, access is controlled and patrols are carried out by security services, including the local Police. A number of regular and diplomatic expatriates also reside here. However, avoid wearing visible expensive jewellery and carrying valuable devices when walking within the estate and Nairobi in general. Always be vigilant and aware of your surroundings. Dress appropriately, do not bring attention to yourself and keep away from any altercation or conflict. Loresho House is situated in the Loresho suburb, and like all upmarket neighbourhoods in Nairobi, it borders a semi-formal settlement - ours are Mīchīgwī and Kangemi. Kangemi straddles Waiyaki Way (A1: Nairobi-Naivasha Highway). A) Taxi services are readily available all over the city and most are organised in associations. There is some stationed at the Kangemi partial cloverleaf. We, however, recommend that our guests ask at Loresho House for our trusted partners, to avoid any security risk. Fares range from Ksh 500-700 (Westlands) to Ksh (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) (CBD) to Ksh (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) (JKIA Airport), depending on the time of day and traffic situation. B) Public transport in Nairobi is not recommended for the soft-willed and inexperienced. Loresho House can be accessed via public transport from the Kangemi Matatu Terminal. Nevertheless, here is an explanation of how to use public transport to and from Loresho House: 1) There are private saloon cars (4 passengers) which plow the route Kangemi-Loresho-Kibagare, along Kaptagat Road and Loresho Ridge, at a cost of Ksh 30 (US$0.35) one way. If you wish to use this service, the waiting point is at the junction of Kaptagat Grove and Kaptagat Road, 100m from Loresho House. 2) At Kangemi (700m from LH), there is a large number of "matatus" (communal taxis/vans with 14 passengers) available, all in competition for passengers. Matatus are identifiable by a yellow stripe running along the side; most are white vans. Number 23 terminates in the CBD (Central Business District) at Odeon Cinema on Latema Road, and may use one of the following routes: i) Waiyaki Way - Chiromo Road - Uhuru Highway - University Way - Globe Cinema Roundabout - Koja Mosque Roundabout - Tom Mboya Avenue - Latema Road ii) Waiyaki Way - Chiromo Road - Uhuru Highway - University Way - Globe Cinema Roundabout - Koja Mosque Roundabout - River Road - Latema Road iii) Waiyaki Way - Chiromo Road - Museum Hill - Kipande Road - Globe Cinema Roundabout - Koja Mosque Roundabout - Tom Mboya Avenue - Latema Road iv) Waiyaki Way - Chiromo Road - Museum Hill - Kipande Road - Globe Cinema Roundabout - Koja Mosque Roundabout - River Road - Latema Road Matatus on Route 23 pass through Sodom, Waruku, Nairobi School, ABC Place, Safaricom House, Brookside Drive, St. Mark's, Westlands, Chiromo/Riverside, Museum Hill, then take one of the 4 routes above, through: i) University, Central Police Station, Globe Cinema, Koja Mosque ii) University, Central Police Station, Globe Cinema, Koja Mosque, River Road iii) Ngara Road Junction, Globe Cinema, Koja Mosque iv) Ngara Road Junction, Globe Cinema, Koja Mosque, River Road Route (i) is the official route. However, there is no way of knowing beforehand, which of the 4 routes the matatu shall use, since the driver decides spontaneously depending on the traffic situation. The fare to be paid is between Ksh 30 - Ksh 50 (off-peak hours) and Ksh 50 - Ksh 100 (peak/rush hours).
