About Us

Eldoret is an up-country market town, population approximately 500,000 situated at an altitude of 2,103m above sea level on the Uasin Gishu Plateau, some 200 miles North-west of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city. The surrounding landscape is predominantly agricultural (wheat, maize and dairy cattle) and the town’s ambience reflects this, although in the last few years other types of industry have been encouraged, and Eldoret now has factories producing cotton goods, knitwear and suitings, among others.

The climate of Eldoret must be one of the most agreeable in the world. One rainy season (April – September) is broken by the reasonably dry month of August. Daytime temperatures over this period average 16-18C (60-64F) and evenings can be cool enough for an open fire. From October to April the weather is clear, bright and sunny, with a mean temperature of 24C (76F). The average rainfall is 1016mm (40″) per year.
