Nyeri is a town situated in the Central Highlands of Kenya. It is the county headquarters of Nyeri County. It is one of the oldest towns in Kenya having been established in the British colonial era. The town was the central administrative headquarters of the country’s former Central Province. Following the dissolution of the former provinces by Kenya’s new constitution on 26 August 2010, the city is situated about 150 km north of Kenya’s capital Nairobi, in the country’s densely populated and fertile Central Highlands, lying between the eastern base of the Aberdare Range, which forms part of the eastern end of the Great Rift Valley, and the western slopes of Mount Kenya. The town was the hub of the Mau Mau rebellion in the 1950s. The majority of Nyeri residents are members of the Kikuyu, Kenya’s largest ethnic group. Swahili is spoken along Kikuyu and English. The total population of the town is estimated at over 300000. Contrary to most of the other major urban centres in Kenya, Nyeri has a relatively low cost of living.

Nyeri is a pleasingly arranged town in the Aberdare foothills, with extensive green meadows and gardens. The foothills are covered by a dense eucalyptus forest and afford a magnificent view of Mount Kenya to the northeast. Much of the surrounding area is utilized for farming, and coffee and tea are important cash crops. The town’s major industries include production of leather goods, soap, wood and furniture, processed food, soft drinks, cord, rope, twine, clay and concrete products, agricultural implements, and fabrics. The main industrial plants are a Coca-Cola bottling plant, a water and fruit juice bottling plant, as well as a number of tea and coffee processing factories. Farming remains the dominant industry in Nyeri. The town is served by a reasonably well-maintained road network connecting to Nairobi, Nakuru, Nanyuki and Othaya, as well as other surrounding towns. The town is served by an airport and an airstrip in the neighbouring towns Mweiga and Nyaribo. Touristic attractions in Nyeri include the Baden-Powell Museum and the Baden-Powell grave – who was the founder of the Scouts Movement. The Nyeri Museum is also a sight to behold as is the Chaka Ranch.
Nyeri is home to the Dedan Kumathi University of Technology and recently upgraded Karatina University College, making it attractive to students considering higher education especially in the technological field.
