In 1990, at the request of Kenyan parents, I came to Kenya to found the first Waldorf school in Equatorial Africa. I stayed because of the children we adopted and the land we bought, landscaped and farmed, Oseki Farm. At night we hear the lions growling and during the day we see zebras, giraffes and antelopes - African magic to this day. I spent 2001 to 2020 in Germany and raised my children. My daughter, grandchild and I returned to Oseki Farm in 2020 to make our dream come true. Meanhwile Oseki Residence and Farm offers 6 residential units of different sizes and designs on 3 hectares of land for long-term rental or on a temporary basis. The proceeds will be used to build a permaculture farm and create ecological infrastructure such as rainwater collection, storage and irrigation. Small animals and a playground for children complement the colorful coexistence for the benefit of everyone. The community of nature lovers, home office workers and artists right next to Nairobi National Park respects the privacy of each individual. We live freely and discreetly in close proximity to the wild animals of Africa. A refreshing experience: We offer an opportunity to gain new impressions and immerse yourself in a completely different, rich and fascinating culture that contains many aspectsthat have been lost in our western culture. All this in a simple environment without sacrificing the essential comfort and security of our usual standard of living. What to expect Hospitality and Support A warm Kenyan team and a German hostess welcome you to our little paradise and show you the local conditions.. Let your soul dangle - completely private You have your own privacy, you run your own household and you can use all kinds of services depending on your wishes and needs. Community and connectedness You are part of a colorful community of employees, other short-term guests and long-term tenants who are happy to share activities with you. Pleasant climatic conditions – Sitting 1600m above sea level, Nairobi enjoys mostly sunny, warm days and pleasantly cool nights despite its proximity to the equator. The cradle of humanity and today Being surrounded by African nature and magic and yet close to the East African metropolis with all the advantages and offers of a big city. Country and people All kinds of excursions, hikes and safaris can be organized with our partners. Kenya's magical coast is a 1 hour flight or 6 hour train ride away. Social impact You can visit social projects such as community schools in the slums through us and, in consultation with us, get involved there in a meaningful way. Contribution Your skills are very welcome at Oseki farm according to your wishes and possibilities. What we wish for and from you Understanding when there is a temporary power or water failure, a heavy downpour temporarily floods the street or the drought covers your hair with dust. Respect and kind words to our always helpful staff, taxi drivers, police officers, shop assistants, bank clerks and anyone who does not assist us in western style and pace. Patience if you are stuck in unbearable traffic jams, overpay when bargaining, information is contradictory and yet you haven't come across any wild animals ;-) That Africa and its magic embraces and energizes you, and countless unforgettable moments make the stay unforgettable.
