Distinctive in spirit and design, Kitengela Hot Glass is located on the edge of Kenyan wilderness, 50 minutes (traffic permitting) from Nairobi city centre. People come from all over the world to visit, drawn by the magical and antique art of glassblowing.
Travel down onto the plains across rutted roads through scrubland & a ravine and you will be transported into another space and time.
Step into the workshops to discover art and watch the magic of glassblowing as it happens. Sip cappuccino at a funky, chunky mosaic table in the outdoor café. Surround yourself in a secret garden of sculpture and furniture and living designs that enchant and inspire.
From direction Nairobi (at Bomas of Kenya roundabout) to Galleria Mall junction, take Magadi Rd. left. Then after 5km take left on Masai Lodge Rd., opposite Ola petrol station just bbefore Ongata Rongai. After about 1km (at the top of a dip after some speed bumps), turn right on the tarmac. Ignore Google if it tells you to go straight at this point. Take the next left at Manna Bible. Then you pass Africa Nazarene on your right - tarmac ends here. Then carry on (over a metal bridge) till the mosque just after Tuala, then take the first major left after Inboxx Lounge (ignoring Google again from this point - if you reach the huge SGR tunnel you’ve gone too far by 150m) - follow signs to ‘Anselm’ all the way.
