Riuki Cultural Centre is located about 25 km outside of Nairobi, Kenya in the Kikuyu Heartland of Kiambu. To get there you drive via Kiambu, Central Province District Headquarters past Ndumberi, Tinganga, and Ikinu Villages to Karia Village through lush green agricultural Gikuyu country until you reach Riuki Cultural Centre.
Our Riuki Kikuyu Cultural Centre Tours Nairobi is led by Dr Kinuthia Njoroge, the guide and a host of children. Riuki Cultural Centre is run by Dr Kinuthia Njoroge, who built a traditional Kikuyu village homestead to show local children the history and customs of the Kikuyu community.
The Kikuyu are the largest community in Kenya and have always played a central role in the development of the independent Nation. Kenya is famous for its 42 cultures, but other than the nomadic Masai and Samburu, not many of these are widely known to the outside world.
Riuki Cultural Centre is devoted to Kikuyu, Kenya’s largest tribe (forming approximately 25% of the total population of 7 million people) and offers a unique experience of this tradition-rich culture existing in the modern world.
For this reason, many may believe that modern influence has eroded the traditional way of life for the Kikuyu tribe who mainly live around the capital city and the highlands. Now visitors to Kenya can come to Riuki Cultural Centre and spend a day learning more about the Kikuyu tribe and their culture.
Some of the cultural activities available include a guided tour of the Kikuyu village, Kikuyu traditional doctor cleansing ceremonies, Kikuyu traditional food and drinks tasting, Kikuyu traditional dances, and a lecture on the Kikuyu tribe’s traditional lifestyle.

Communities always remained bound by strict and strong ties of clan loyalty and an even stronger sense of tribal unity – There was an age-set system among young men, known as Mariika, but all clans and villages (itura) always paid deference to the wisdom and law of the tribe.
After the hut tour follows Riuki Cultural Centre Traditional Songs, Proverbs, Dances, Myths, and Legends of the Kikuyu to life.
