Eldama Ravine is a sleepy hilltop town which has yet to find itself frequented by tourists. It does however hold some attractions for the day-tripper or for a short-stay visitor, perhaps on their way to Western Kenya or the northern part of the Rift. It is easily accessible from Baringo or Nakuru on a day-trip.
These attractions are first of all, some excellent and accessible parts of the Mau Forest lying only a kilometre of two from the centre of town and which are very pleasant to walk in. Secondly, the town does have a nice place to stay; Taidy's, which is not only comfortable and extremely reasonably priced, but provides quite a buzz with its unique afro-american style of decor and dedication to outdoor eating. The management of Taidy's is committed to success and will do all in their power to welcome a tourist who comes to stay.
Apart from Taidy's and the forest, I found a visit to the local flower farm most worthwhile; the horticulture industry, so important to Kenya's economy, is often accused of profiting from cheap labour and lax government supervision. But Karen Roses is perhaps one of the foremost examples in the country of responsible social employment and the staff are quite willing to open its gates to visitors who wish to see how beautiful fresh roses end up in the local shops of Europe on a winter morning.
