Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, is about 100 miles (161 kilometers) northwest of Mbirikani.
And remember, there is more to Kenya than Mbirikani, so try to set aside some time to tour the region's natural and cultural sights. You'll also find Amboseli, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northeast, and Taveta 60 miles (97 kilometers) to the north.
If the weather forecast means you don't want to be outside, visit Kenya's craft workshops.
For those who feel it's important to pick up knowledge as well as souvenirs while on vacation, Mbirikani offers plenty of specialist activities, such as wildlife safaris and wildlife spotting tours.
Enjoy the Kenya food culture by exploring the region's cafés and restaurants. Potato and also maize are popular here. Of course no trip to this region would be finished without getting a taste of ugali (cornmeal) and irio (mashed peas and potato mix). And your meal is not over until you have tried chilled banana cream, a popular dessert here. Picana (mango juice) is a common beverage in this area.
The most convenient major airport, Kilimanjaro International Airport, is situated in Kilimanjaro, 70 miles (113 kilometers) to the southwest of Mbirikani, so take that into account when booking your vacation.
