When you Google Subuiga, what you get is all about the gruesome accidents that occur on this hilly section of the Meru Nanyuki Road.  Rarely will anybody mention to you the immense economic potential of this area.

Much of Timau all the way to the Isiolo Nanyuki/ Meru junction (popularly known as Subuiga) are intensively cultivated undulating plains.  Wheat farms cover as much as the eyes can see. Equally fascinating are what appears to be lakes or ponds from afar. These are green houses for flower and horticulture farming. Flowers and horticulture produce from these farms are for export market.  Also noticeable are huge flocks of sheep and herds daily cows.

  • Lewa wildlife conservancy.  Lewa is among the most successful rhino sanctuaries in the the world.  Lewa wildlife conservancy is also a hideaway of the future King Prince William.  It was while on a holiday in Lewa that he took his bride to the nearby Rutundu log cabins where they got engaged.
