Directions to the studio:
From Nairobi, at Bomas of Kenya (the Galleria Mall junction) take Magadi road left for 3.5km (after GEMS & Banda schools), then turn left on Masai lodge Rd. opposite the Hashi petrol station, just before Ongata Rongai. After about 1km (at the top of the small hill after some speed bumps), turn right (following the tarmac). Take the next left at Manna Bible after 750m. Then you will pass Africa Nazarene on your right. Murrum (dirt) road starts here. Over a small metal bridge. Then carry on (through Tuala town) till the mosque, then first left – follow signs to 'Anselm'.

The back route from Karen to the Masai Lodge road turnoff: from Karen turn right onto Karen road, past the Karen Country Club, left on Bogani road (to the end), then right on Langata South Rd. When Langata South Rd. starts going to the right, take the little slip road on the left onto Syedna Mohammed Burhannuddin Rd (Matbronze junction). Immediately after going through the security barrier, turn left on to Kisembe Road, to the T-Junction, turn right on to Magadi Road. Down Magadi Road, turn left just before Ongata Rongai (opp. Hashi petrol station). This way you will avoid traffic along Langata Road towards Galleria.  Ideally have Google maps open so you can double check.
