  • It was too rough road, so it was very tired. But, very good place. If the way would be good, my overall might be excellent.  more »
  • This place was a complete surprise! A long, bumpy road led to the outskirts of Rongai where we found this fantastical, whimsy, beautiful glass and pottery artist's grounds. Extremely reasonable prices...  more »

  • Kitengela glass studio is is must see atelier while in Nairobi. Its in the outskirts of the city but worth the drive. Beautiful, amazing, quirky, creative.... Etc... Just to mention a few. A glass furnace for hot glass molding, a whole sale and retail shop, a coffee shop, an atelier, an adventure trail... So much to do and see.... Totally love it
  • It's a short drive from Nairobi but well worth a trip. Watching the glassblowers at work is mesmerising and the place has glass decorations everywhere. The gift shop has some fantastic art on sale and the toilets are immaculate.
  • A fantastic experience in an almost mystical world of glass and fire. A long, rough road, but worth the drive. Beautiful, hand-made glassware on sale.
  • 5 starts for ingenuity. Recycling has always been something that I support. The young men at Anselm work hard, under searing temperatures from the glass melting kiln.
  • I really liked it. It's spectacular to be in. A heaven of sorts
