Karibu! Welcome to the blog of Rimpa Estates! This blog is dedicated to the happenings of Rimpa Estates – both on the farm and on the Reserve.
Rimpa Estates takes the first part of its name from the Maasai word for paradise and sits in the Rift Valley outside of Nairobi, Kenya. There we farm Simmental cows and Dorper sheep. However, our Reserve where we graze our herds, is also home to the migration patterns of wildlife herds and so we also offer game drives through the vast acreage of the family’s land. There, herds of zebras and cows can be seen grazing peacefully together.

This blog will cover a range of topics, including farming challenges and experiences as well as featuring guest bloggers who have camped out on the Reserve for been on game drives. Our goal is to update this blog twice a week.
Not only are we at Rimpa working to be educational to our neighbors in Kenya, but also across the world. Because we are a family run business, we strive to make everyone feel like they are a part of the Rimpa family. Being family run means that everyone has a part to play and each part is vital to the smooth running the farm. The Estate has worked to bring the Ole Sein family back to their home – it is in their blood to be together. Yet, the Estates have worked their magic even further…it brings together people from all walks of life with an open mind and an open heart.
This farm, started by the love between two people, now serves to spreads a sense of belonging. What do you do to show your family you love them?
